TOPIC: When God Closes The Door To That King/Queen!
SCRIPTURE: ACTS 7:17-29
Vs. 18 of today’s scripture says: “Till another king arose, which knew not Joseph.” This is a common scripture! The summary is that indeed, Joseph and all his historical achievements were forgotten. There arose a generation that did not remember the good he did. And the Holy Ghost’s “divine capsule” for you today is: KINGS (those in authority, helpers, those you look up to, those you trust, etc,) ARE HUMAN AND THEY CAN CHANGE! Therefore LOOK NOT TO THEM FOR YOUR HELP! God can use them but always remember that THEY CAN FAIL YOU AT ANY TIME!
No wonder David remembered Joseph and he was led to write in Psalm 121: 1 – 3: “I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help. My help cometh from the LORD, which made heaven and earth. He will not suffer thy (my) foot to be moved: He that keepeth thee (me) will not slumber.” Then Jeremiah 17: 5 says: “Thus saith the LORD; ‘Cursed be the man that trusteth in man, and maketh flesh his arm, and whose heart departeth from the LORD . ” It’s easy for your heart to depart from the LORD GRADUALLY when you are looking up to a man or woman and THAT IS WHY IT IS A CURSE!
Vs. 6 of Jeremiah 17 describes anybody LOOKING TO KINGS or QUEENS or indeed any man/woman – “For he shall be like the heath in the desert, and shall not see when good cometh; but shall inhabit the parched places in the wilderness, in a salt land and not inhabited.” See Verses 7-8 for what will happen to you when you trust the LORD. Use today’s devotional to repent and determine not to be angry with any friend, man or woman who has withdrawn support for you.
Look to the immortal KING of kings and not to mortal kings! WHEN GOD ALLOWS A DOOR TO CLOSE, IT’S BECAUSE HE IS ABOUT TO OPEN A BIGGER/ WIDER DOOR!Pray now!
