We certainly know several purposes of a door–security, warmth, separation, privacy, etc. But a door may also represent a place of invitation. I’m sure you’ve said it before to someone else “I’m just praying for an open door.” And what most people are communicating in such a statement is this: “I’m looking for the right invitation that the Lord would have me to receive.”

The reality of our lives is certain: many doors are open to us and many invitations have our names on them. But discerning which door(s) to walk through and which invitation(s) to receive is much more difficult. It takes patience, quiet and prayerful reflection, deep discernment, and a true trust in the Sovereign God.

So, we encourage you to consider which doors the Lord may be asking you to open and walk through; which invitations are of and from the Lord? And which ones are for you (specifically) to receive?

Perhaps it’s a move to a new town…initiating a new friendship…taking better care of your physical body…engaging in a new rhythm of prayer…embracing the sabbath more fully.

As you look at this image, would you prayerfully consider which open doors the Lord would have you step through? Which invitations are of and from the Lord–that He would have you joyfully receive?

Blessings to you!
