God is going to put before me a very small door and beyond that small door is a very big room, full of all the things He has promised me – a life in ministry, prosperity, family, a loving marriage, and a future. I’ve been waiting for 39 years for the small door to present itself but I haven’t done all I can to search for it. It has been hidden from sight by the enemy.

hallway1Each hall that I walk down has a whole bunch of doors, and I walked aimlessly around, choosing the wrong doors and walking into poor surroundings. It’s not a guessing game, it was always a choice.

My dreams are so big that they always seem to be beyond me, as they should be if God is going to get all the honor out of making them a reality. This waiting time needs to be used wisely and I need to be preparing for the dreams, regardless of how crazy that looks to the world.

Habakkuk 2:1 – I will stand at my watch
and station myself on the ramparts;
I will look to see what he will say to me,
and what answer I am to give to this complaint.

hallway2Each time I am faced with a big decision, I choose the doors closest to me instead of cruising down the hall toward the corner room with a view. I settled. I settled for the dreams of others, for the dreams of the world, and labels were put on me. Each time I opened a new door, I walked into comfortable settings that weren’t meant to push me out of complacency. Once I was forced back into the hall, I had to play catch up to reach for the door of GOD’S choosing, so I would hit default and choose yet another door that wasn’t intended for me. It became a horrible cycle of searching, opening, staying, being pushed back into the hall, briefly seeing the right door, but still choosing the wrong one. Again, and again, and again….

Habakkuk 2:2-3 – Then the Lord replied:

Write down the revelation
and make it plain on tablets
so that a herald may run with it.
3 For the revelation awaits an appointed time;
it speaks of the end
and will not prove false.
Though it linger, wait for it;
it will certainly come
and will not delay.

hallway3The Lord barely puts the right door within my reach. It is time I write the vision down, read it, and run with it to the bigger room. It has been lingering for entirely too long. My anointing is now, my appointment is now. It will no longer delay. It is here and now and I stand before the small door and knock with anticipation running through my veins. It is time to stop building houses in the desert because I am NOT staying there! It’s time to live on purpose for His purpose!

To further your reading, consider this from:

Hebrews 10:36 – You need to persevere so that when you have done the will of God, you will receive what He has promised.

We have hope because salvation is ours if we choose it. Times of trial are meant to sift us as wheat. What door are you choosing for yourself? How does your patience fair? Are you able to do God’s will and get outside of yourself to receive the blessings?
