I heard doors opening and I then heard doors slamming shut.
I heard the doors open and then saw people standing in the doorways. As the people took one step toward the door that had opened, the doorways that the people had been standing in, the door they stepped out of, slammed shut.
I hear the Lord saying, “I am opening new doors. As you step into and through the new doors and out of the old place, I am slamming the door to where you have been and I am taking you where you are going. Many have stayed in the old place too long. Therefore, I say to you, do not look back as you step forward. Keep your focus on Me and walk through the new doors I have for you. There will be new alignments for you through the new doors. Some need to walk away from old alignments in order to grab hold of the new ones I have ahead for you. The old ones will try to hold you back. I say to you, ‘BREAK FREE’ from them.”
There are NEW doors opening by GOD for you! He is saying to us that some of our old alignments need to be broken, because He doesn't want anything or anyone to hold us back. Be willing to let go. I can truly say that when God wants us to let go of something or someone what HE has ahead for us is FAR GREATER than what we had. GOD is wanting to take you places with Him that you have never been, into things you have never experienced. Be willing to go on this adventure with Him. Honestly sometimes, as great as the people are in our lives, they aren't always as willing to go into the great unknown as we are, and they can, without being intentional, hold us back. Don't allow boat people to stay in your life. Those who would encourage you to stay in the boat instead of getting out of the boat and walking on the water. It is the greatest time to be alive. It is the greatest time for the Body of Christ. God is wanting us to leave behind the way it has been, what we are comfortable with, the ones we are comfortable with, and walk through the NEW doors. As we do, He is slamming the OLD doors shut. HE is slamming them shut because He doesn't want us to go back through the doors we just walked out of. That season is done. It is time to walk through the new doors and into the new that HE has for us. Leave what He tells you to leave and go forward with Him.
The doors I heard slam were so loud. Why? When something slams it gets your attention. This slam is letting you know that you won't be going back there. It is almost as if when it slammed shut, it sealed shut. Get ready, people of God, this is happening. What we have been comfortable with is changing. Who we have been comfortable with, is changing. The way we have done things is shifting. God is shifting and changing things for us. The new doors are advancement. The new doors are MORE! Do not allow the enemy, your flesh, or the comfort, keep you in the old doors. Be bold, be strong for the Lord your God is with you.
2 Corinthians 5:17 (NKJV) “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.”
Isaiah 43:19 (NKJV) “Behold, I will do a new thing, now it shall spring forth; shall you not know it? I will even make a road in the wilderness and rivers in the desert.”
Philippians 2:13 (NKJV) “For it is God who works in you both to will and to do for His good pleasure.”
God is wanting and plans to do this. Walk through the open doors. Walk out of the old; He can be trusted. Leave behind what He doesn't want you to carry with you through the new doors. Ask what that is. There is so much MORE ahead for you. The new doors are already open, WALK THROUGH THEM!!!!
