A NEW SEASon
And the one sitting on the throne said, "Look, I am making everything new!" (Revelation 21:5 NLT)
We understand that in the natural world in order to go into a new season, one must end. In places in the United States where four distinct seasons are apparent, it is understood that a region cannot be in winter and spring simultaneously for example. In our spiritual lives and in our walk with Christ, the problem occurs when we have entered a new season but are not cognizant of it. The Lord puts it this way, "See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it?" (Isaiah 43:19 NIV). The problem you have been experiencing may not be a problem at all but simply God placing you in a new season. Just because doors have closed does not mean that you have done something wrong or that God is not working everything out for your good (Romans 8:28). Closed doors are simply an indication that you have left an old season behind and entered a new one. God never closes a door without first having opened a new better one.
In the book of Revelation, the Apostle John writes, "This is the message from the one who is holy and true, the one who has the key of David. What he opens, no one can close; and what he closes, no one can open" (3:7 NLT). Notice that in the preceding passage, there is an opening first and then a closing. Often we enter a new season of opportunity and manifestation even though we may not perceive it and that is the reason a door has been closed in our lives. Remember that when the Children of Israel left bondage in Egypt and walked through the Red Sea to escape the Egyptians pursuing them, the Lord "opened a way" first for them to cross over to the land on the other side before "closing" the Red Sea behind them (their past) and drowning the Egyptians (Exodus 14:22, 26-27). If you are experiencing a closed door or doors in your life, know that God has brought you into a new season filled with greater opportunities, possibilities, and promise!
