We value doors of opportunity that swing wide open to us because they confirm our greatness. Open doors give us courage, they build our confidence, and they affirm that we are valuable to others. An open door is an indication that we have been seen, that we matter, and that someone appreciates something that we possess.
If an open door affirms our value, then a cracked door just might make us question it. We may become distracted by the restricted access that a cracked door signifies. Instead of being confident in what we have, a cracked door may make us feel as if we are not enough. A cracked door can be thought of as a tease, because it sets opportunity within our reach, while seemingly escaping our grasp.
In a culture that thrives off of instant gratification, an opened door is likely our preference. Yet what if cracked doors were sent to let us know that we are close to our dreams being manifested, and we only need patience. Patience is an undervalued virtue in our culture, but it is a Godly characteristic. So when a door cracks open to you make sure you don’t miss its value whining or wishing it was something else. Remember a cracked door is not an open door, but it is not a closed one either. Will you dare to be patient, and allow your light to shine bright enough to become irresistible, or will you shrink back in fear? You are the only one who gets to choose…..
But those who wait for the Lord [who expect, look for, and hope in Him]
Will gain new strength and renew their power;
They will lift up their wings [and rise up close to God] like eagles [rising toward the sun];
They will run and not become weary,
They will walk and not grow tired.
(Isaiah 40:31, Amplified Version)
That’s all for today, until next time,
Keep your hope Living,
