Multiple times this year, I've found myself in moments and situations when something I'd planned and worked so hard for, just didn't quite work out. It seemed like no matter how hard I prayed or prepared, God allowed doors to remain closed. I embraced the simple truth that no matter how hard you knock, God will not open a door you are not supposed to walk through.
How amazing is it that before you were created, before you ever knew who you were, God made a blueprint for your life? He had ideas and plans to carry out and He knew you would be the perfect fit. It is such a relief to know that you aren't here by accident. There is a reason for your existence.
Have you ever been afraid to try again because your past attempts didn't work out well? Are you trusting more in your track record than God, who has the power to move on your behalf?
