4 Ways To Discern If An Open Door Is From God

2. You Won’t Have to Force it

Jesus is the one who opens doors.

‘I know your deeds. Behold, I have put before you an open door which no one can shut, because you have a little power, and have kept My word, and have not denied My name. (Revelation 3:8).

If the door simply won’t open for you to do something, then that door is not supposed to be opened. Even jimmying the lock or trying to break the door down won’t work.

Pray for God to reveal to you which door you are to walk through and make it obvious to you by opening a door that you can’t.

3. The Door Makes You Utterly Dependent on Him

If you can manage to go through a door and not need God’s help for anything, then you might be walking through a door in your own flesh. You might be depending on the strength of your own arm, which isn’t a good indication of God opening a door for you.

God wants us to be totally dependent upon Him because any work we do is for Him anyway. Jesus said we can’t do anything without Him (John 15:5), and we won’t be able to produce any fruit of God at all without Him (John 15:4).
