I know your deeds. See, I have placed before you an open door that no one can
shut. I know that you have little strength, yet you have kept my word and have
not denied my name. (Revelation 3:8)
A promise given to the church at Philadelphia in Asia Minor. Interestingly out of the 7
churches that were given admonitions, only the churches at Philadelphia and Smyrna
survived because they humbled themselves and moved forward based on the Word given
by the Holy Spirit to them.
Jesus knows the spiritual strength that we have as believers. Some are strong while some
are not. Yet he expects us to keep his Word and not deny his name in any way with
whatever strength we have.
Jesus is the one who has the authority over every aspect of our lives. What he opens no
one can shut, and what he shuts no one can open. (Revelation 3:7)
The doors that the enemy shuts in your lives can be opened any moment by your Savior.
He has all the keys with him.
Do you believe that? He is Almighty God. Trust in him. Praise him for he alone is your
Pray this day that Jesus Christ opens up the doors that the enemy has shut in your lives.
Believe that it will happen and praise God for it. Remember that he can not only open shut
doors but also open new doors and new ways. When the need arose, God opened up a new
way in the Red Sea. A way which no one had traversed before. A way that no one could
have imagined of. But there it was; and every Israelite who had got out of Egypt walked
and experienced the miracle. So it will be in your life too.
