Open Doors: Block Opposition
You can be willing to go into all the world to preach the Gospel, and you can be prepared to go, but unless God opens the doors before you, you will not get very far.
Ministers need God to open up doors of opportunity, as well as the doors of men's hearts to minister effectively. Ask God to go before them and prepare the way.
Re 3:8 I know your deeds. See, I have placed before you an open door that no one can shut.
Father, You are the creator of all things. You called forth the planets with a word, and established the stars with the sound of your voice. You have authority over all the resources of the universe, and you have promised to be with Your servants, as the minister in Your name.
Lord, as Benga of Equatorial Guinea
goes out to minister today, I ask for the open doors that no man can shut. I ask that Your angels would go before him to remove the obstacles that stand in the way of Your Gospel. I bind the spirit of deception that clouds the mind, and the spirit of fear that holds back the heart. I proclaim Jesus as the Lord over all the earth, and remind You Father that Christ has purchased men from every tongue and tribe and nation. I ask You Lord to transact business on behalf of Jesus today as Benga of Equatorial Guinea
ministers. And bring into the kingdom those purchased by His blood.
