A Weekend Of Closed Doors

Every single door in our house is different. Some have windows, some are solid. Some are colored like our red front door while others are plain wood. Some are sliding glass and others fold up as you open them.

Regardless of what it looks like, the job of a door is to allow you to go in and out while still keeping things out that you don't want in. And keeping things in that you don't want out. The hinges keep it moving freely, and the locks keep us protected from unwanted guests.

And after eight days again his disciples were within, and Thomas with them: then came Jesus, the doors being shut, and stood in the midst, and said, Peace be unto you. John 20:26

Jesus came to the disciples when the doors were shut, bringing a message of peace and love. The doors didn't matter to Him because He was coming in no matter what. He brought peace with Him, despite the doors.

Make this a weekend of paying attention to those closed doors. Are they actually protecting you, or have you closed yourself off from the world around you? Do you need to throw the doors wide open and see what God has to offer you?

Or maybe you've had the doors open too much, and too much of what's out there has come in. You may need to take some time this weekend to close yourself in and spend some much-needed time with the Lord.
