Day 43) I spoke of the open door that is set before us. We have a choice of either going through or not going through that door that leads to our destiny. But let me share with you one very important truth about that door, God has been waiting at the door for us!
Last night at the Open Door meeting at the Global Spheres Center, Dr. Robert Heidler shared a teaching about the upcoming month of Av, which starts this evening at sundown. The key thought regarding this month, especially in Jewish history, is the "dire straits. It is a time for passing through the narrow place - the time of testing - the wilderness - in order to enter into the place of your promise, your joy, your destiny and your future in the Lord.
It is also understood by the Jewish world as a month of great curse and sorrow. Why? Because on the 9th of Av the Israelites stood on the brink of the promise. They had exited Egypt. They had journeyed to Sinai. They now stood at Kadesh Barnea and had a door of opportunity and promise opened before them.
OK, what about us? As we journey through the dire straits - the wilderness - the drought - the testing, and arrive at the open door of our destiny as a state and nation, will you believe God’s promise?
Will you press through this month? On the other side of that "eye of the needle", narrow place or door is your future. Let's go through narrow place to get to the broad expanse of God's promise. You will miss the blessing if you don’t.
