Bright and Blessed: Seeking God’s Path

May 25, 2024

With so much happening in the world today, it can often feel as though doors are closing left and right in front of us, with no clear way out of our situation. We turn to God, hoping for new opportunities, but what should we do when every door seems shut? The encouraging truth is that when God closes a door, He opens another. By closing one path, God may be protecting us from unforeseen circumstances or preparing to bless us in unimaginable ways.

Frequently, we ask God for very specific things. We may fail to seek his guidance in opening the doors that align with His will and asking Him to close doors that do not. Our plans are not always His plans, and He has something better in store for us. God understands and perceives what we cannot see. He has our best interest at heart and knows what will bless and benefit us in the long run. We must learn to trust that God sees far beyond our immediate closed doors, and His guidance will lead us to the best path forward.

Your Call to Action

Seek God’s will and allow Him to take the reins, leading you to new opportunities. Trust that God will open and close the right doors for you so your future is bright and blessed.

“To the angel of the church in Philadelphia write: These are the words of him who is holy and true, who holds the key of David. What he opens no one can shut, and what he shuts no one can open” (Revelation 3:7).

“And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose” (Romans 8:28).

“In their hearts humans plan their course, but the Lord establishes their steps” (Proverbs 16:9).


Dear God, thank You for the doors You have opened and closed in our lives. Please continue to open the right doors for us and close the doors we are not meant to walk through. Give us wisdom and clarity, and help us to seek You first in all we do. In Your name, we pray, Amen.

A Comforting Closure
