It is important to know that when Jesus opens a door for you, no man can shut it. Your momma can't shut it; your daddy can't shut it; your pastor can't shut a door that Jesus opens for you.

Actually, you are the only one who can in effect shut the doors of God's blessing on your life. How? By a lack of understanding or by disobedience. You see, there is a God-ward side and a man-ward side to everything we receive from God.

Many times folks want to leave it all up to God. They say, "Whatever I need, I know the Lord will send it. If I need healing, He will send that. Whatever it is, God will just send it."

That sounds good, and that sounds religious. But, really, putting it in the context of what Jesus said, it isn't true. Why? Because when it comes to the provisions of God, Jesus has already set before us an open door.
Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath BLESSED US WITH ALL SPIRITUAL BLESSINGS IN HEAVENLY PLACES in Christ.
(Eph. 1:3)
In other words, the open door of God's blessings is already there for us to enter into because God provided us with all spiritual blessings in Christ Jesus. What are some of Jesus' open doors to God's blessings?

Well, there is the open door of salvation, the door of service and opportunity, the door of divine healing, the door of utterance, and the door of financial blessing. Then Jesus also opens for us the door of Heaven.

Since Jesus has opened wide His doors of blessing for us, then the responsibility is ours whether or not we ever enter through those open doors.
