4 Ways To Discern If An Open Door Is From God

Have you ever been stuck in a position that required you to make a decision. Perhaps you had two job offers and couldn’t decide which one to take.

Maybe one you’ve been waiting for, for months (maybe even years)… while the other one  kind of just fell in your lap so to speak. Which one do you take?

Is it an open door from God or are you trying to kick the door open?

Here are 4 Ways To Discern If An Open Door Is From God:

1. The Open Door Points to God’s Glory

No door that God opens will contradict Scripture. If an opportunity arises that requires for you to go against God’s word, it’s not from God.

It shouldn’t require you to compromise your beliefs and morals. If it makes you feel more guilty than good, it’s not from God. If it doesn’t feel right, more than likely it’s not.

Loving God means obeying His commandments (2 John 1:6). If someone says they know Him but doesn’t keep His commandments, he is not of God (1 John 2:3) and God calls him or her a liar (1 John 2:4). Obedience to God glorifies Him.

I needed this! I have an opportunity to have a face to face on Friday with an individual I’ve not spoken to in about a month and I’m split on if it’s God will or just my flesh. My heart is curios and hopeful but my hurt feelings say to stay home… God I trust you and I need your direction, discernment, and sound judgement.
