Ever leave one room, go into another, and completely forget why you are there? Apparently it is the door’s fault! Our darling brain files one room’s thoughts in one spot and opens a new storage place for the next room! This tidbit of information got me on the trail of doors. What part do they really play in our lives?
- Sin crouches at the door. (Genesis 4:7)
- God passed over certain blood-marked doors. (Exodus 12:23)
- Aaron, the priest, and his sons ate at the door of the Tabernacle. (Exodus 29:32)
- Moses stood at the door and the Lord talked to him. (Exodus 33:9)
- The Israelites wrote God’s word on their door posts. (Deuteronomy 6:9)
- If we keep asking and seeking and knocking the door will be opened. (Matthew 7:8)
There’s lots more door information in the Bible, but these are my favorites.
Behold, I stand at the door and knock; if anyone hears and listens to and heeds My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and will eat with him, and he [will eat] with Me. (Revelation 3:20, AMP)
I am the Door; anyone who enters in through Me will be saved (will live). He will come in and he will go out [freely], and will find pasture. (John 10:9, AMP)
Prayer: Lord, thank you for giving us Jesus, the Door through which You remember our sins no more…and the Door by which we find You. Amen.
