We need to learn to thank the Lord for closed doors just as much as we
do for open doors. The reason God closes doors
is  because He has not prepared anything over there for us.

If he didn't close the wrong door we would  never find our way to the
right door. Even when we don't realize it, God directs  our paths
through the closing and opening of doors. When one door closes, it
forces us to change our course. Another door closes; it forces us to
change our  course yet again.

Then finally, we find the open door and walk right into our  blessing.
But instead of praising God for the closed door (which kept us out of
trouble), we get upset because we "judge by the appearances." And in our
own arrogance, or ignorance, we  insist that we know what is right.

We have a very present help in the time of need who is always standing
guard.  Because He walks ahead of us, He can see trouble down the road
and HE sets up  road blocks and detours accordingly. But through
our lack of wisdom we try to  tear down the roadblocks or push aside the
detour signs. Then the minute we get into trouble, we start crying "Lord
how could this happen to me?"

We have got to realize that the closed door was a blessing. Didn't He
say that "No good thing will He withhold from them that love Him?"

If you get terminated from your job - don't be down, instead thank God
for the new opportunities that will manifest themselves  - it might be a
better job, or an opportunity to go to school. If that man or woman
won't return your call - it might not be them, it might be the Lord
setting up a roadblock (just let it go).

One time a person had a bank he had been doing  business with for many
years tell him "NO" for a $10,000 loan. The Lord led him to call another
bank. That bank approved a $40,000 loan for him at a lower interest rate
than his own bank had advertised.

I'm so grateful, for the many times God has closed doors to me, just to
open them in the most unexpected places. "The steps of a good man are
ordered by the Lord, and He delights in his way." (Psalms 37:23) The
mountain top is glorious, but it is in the Valley that I will grow!

Always Remember God gives you...
Enough Happiness to keep you Sweet
Enough Trials to keep you Strong
Enough Sorrows to keep you Human
Enough Hope to keep you Happy
Enough Failure to keep you  Humble
Enough Success to keep you Eager
Enough Friends to give you Comfort
Enough Wealth to meet your Needs
Enough Enthusiasm to make you look forward
Enough Faith to banish depression, and
Enough Determination to make each day a better day than the last.

Life must be lived forward but can only be understood backwards.
Commit to the Lord in whatever you do and your plans will succeed.
(Proverbs 16:3)

This is true... doors have closed on me and I didn't understand.  But in a short time a new door opened and I had some better understading.  We can't get lazy if we want God to use us.ClapClap

Thank you, I needed that on this, my first day of being without a job.  I thank God for closing the door on that good job that I had because I know he is setting the way for a great opportunity to be mine.

Abba, thank you for posting this! These sentiments are soooo true! God has closed many a door in my life and sometimes I got it and other times I didn't. I thank Him for closing those doors and leading me to a new blessing.

Sometimes when doors close we immediately think negative, however God is planning to open a new door for you.
