We need to thank the Lord for closed doors, as we do for an open door. The reason God closes doors is because He has not prepared anything through them for us. If he didn't close the wrong door we would never find our way to the right one. Even when we don't realize it, God directs our path through the closing and opening doors.

When our door closes, it forces us to change our course. When another door closes, it forces us to change our course yet again. Then finally we find the open door and walk right into our blesing. But instead of praising God for the closed doors,(which kept us out of trouble) we get upset because we judge by our 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. He is always standing Guard. Because He walks ahead of us, He can see trouble down the road and sets up road blocks and detours accordingly.

But through our lack of wisdom we try to tear down the road blocks or push aside the detour signs. Then the minute we get into trouble, we start crying "Lord! How could that happen to me ?"

We have got to realize that the closed door was a blessing. Did He not say "No good thing will He with hold from them that love Him?"

If you get terminated from your job, don't be down for too long. Thank God for the new opportunities that will manifest themselves- it might be a better job, where you could use your skills in a much better way, or an opportunity to go to school .

If that woman or man won't return your call, it might not be them. It might be Lord setting up a road block(just let it go)

Your request for loan from a bank was turned down. Wait! It may not be the money you have to have.

I'm so greatful for the times God closed doors for me, just to open others in the most unexpected places.

The steps of good man are ordered by the Lord, and He delights in his way. Psalm 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
*Enough Determination to make each Day a better day than the last

SaraIqbal A nice article indeed. I just wanna know that can we pray from Allah to open a door of any opportunity which we keenly desire for and make that opening benificial for us.
eusmoaz I think the best prayer if you desire something is to ask Allah that He may grant you that thing if it is beneficial.
ibrahim Yes Sister U can Do this & Ms "eusmoaz" is absolutely RIGHT bcoz We canot be SURE that WHICH thing is GOOD for US. Only God Knows that WHAT is BEST for US. I personally think that we shud GO with the Knowledge of GOD who knows EVERY thing THOUHG one may ASK what he/sje wants & even Request to make it benificial.
seyaw It sounds best. It tells me the fact, most of the time that i will forget
