1 Corinthians 16:9

"For a great door and effectual is opened unto me, and there are many adversaries"

The meaning and purpose of open door to Paul was to preach the word. What is the meaning of open door for us? We have discussed the answer in the course of this month’s theme in John10:9. Please reference it to refresh our minds. (Jesus was introduced to us as the door of Salvation and Provision)


However, In Acts 16:6-7 before this great and fervent door was opened unto Paul in the passage above, the Holy Spirit had forbidden and suffered him not to enter the cities of Asia and Bi-thyn-ia to preach. That was God in action. The door was not opened for Paul in that direction. So, he changed direction and went to Macedonia.


When a door is not opened to you, prayerfully and carefully change direction under God’s guidance like Paul did. Do not change direction in anger or ego, it may lead to further wrong direction. The devil can also open and shut doors, because he specializes in counterfeiting what God is doing. Brother Paul was helped by the Hoy Spirit not to go inside the cites. Please note that for every door closed by God, there is another door opened by HIM. The Holy Spirit is not only for Paul, HE guides people that can persevere and persist in HIM.

Prayer points for the day

1) Father, thank you most sincerely for doors you are opening this month, in Jesus Name.

2) Father, thank you because of the assurance in our word about my open doors, in Jesus Name.

3) Lord, thank you for giving me the grace to see another light of the day, in Jesus Name.

4) Father, thank you for the Holy Spirit direction in my life, in Jesus Name.

5) Lord, shut every door that you need to in my life, in Jesus Name.

6) Father, open unto me my eternal door of eternity, in Jesus Name.

7) Father, help me out not to enter any door not meant or me in Jesus Name. Amen.

Have a blessed and wonderful day!
