The Importance of Divine Timing Pertaining to the Open Doors from God.
Timing is a matter of ADJUSTING TO and SYNCHRONIZING WITH the PPOG & going forward to fulfill your personal sense of destiny.
God has called you in a very special way with a very special plan designed for you to fulfill personally,
so that you may share in the strategic victory of our Lord Jesus Christ.
2PE 1:10 Therefore, brethren, be all the more diligent to make certain about His calling and choosing you; for as long as you practice these things, you will never stumble;
2PE 1:11 for in this way the entrance into the eternal kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ will be abundantly supplied to you.
Key phrase - 2PE 1:10....be all the more diligent to make certain about His calling and choosing you;
2PE 1:10 Because of this, brethren, be all the more solicitous and eager to make sure (to ratify, to strengthen, to make steadfast)
your calling and election;
Divine Timing as it relates to the Open Doors that God provides depends upon whether or not you are willing to ADJUST TO the PPOG & go forward to fulfill your personal sense of destiny.
God has assigned to you a number of days to live on this earth according to PSA 90:12; 31:15.
PSA 90:12 "Teach us to number our days, That we may present to Thee a heart of wisdom."
PSA 31:15 My times are in Thy hand;
LAM 3:22-23 The Lord’s lovingkindnesses indeed never cease, For His compassions never fail. They are new every morning; Great is Thy faithfulness.
Yesterday is history, Tomorrow is a mystery, & today is a gift.
That’s why we call it the present.
One of the great problems that many believers have
is that while gazing too frequently into the past, they turn around only to find the future has run out on them.
There is no distance on this earth as far away as yesterday.
You can clutch on to your past so tightly, only to find out your arms too full to embrace the present.
fly by while we sit around regretting
we have lost.
Many people lose out on the happiness today that comes their way because of the happiness that has come & gone astray.
When one door closes another door opens; but we often look so long & so regretfully upon the closed door, that we do not see the ones which open for us.
Every morning there is an open door leading to the faithfulness of God as He is waiting to reveal His lovingkindnesses & compassions which are new every morning, & never cease or never fail.
PRO 8:30 Then I [doctrine] was beside Him, as a master workman; and I was daily His delight, rejoicing always before Him,
God’s wisdom or His Doctrine promises blessings to those who listen to it daily in PRO 8:34.
PRO 8:34 Blessed is the man who listens to me, watching daily at my gates, waiting at my doorposts.
God has also given us an assignment which is a certain amount of time to do certain things in our life.
ECC 3:1-8, the timing of God concerning the open doors that He provides are found in the significant areas of our life but also, in the
"so-called" little area’s or little things.
When we operate under God’s schedule for our lives, which is living in divine timing & going TO & THROUGH the open doors that He sets before us, then we are ready to fulfill our very own personal sense of destiny in the midst of the angelic conflict.
God’s open doors provided every one of us a certain amount of time that we might use it for His glory.
PHI 1:21 For me, living is Christ,
LUK 21:13 “It will lead to an opportunity for your testimony.”
GAL 6:10 "While we have opportunity, let us do good to all men, and especially to those who are of the household of the faith."
COL 4:5 Conduct yourselves with wisdom toward outsiders, making the most of the opportunity.
COL 3:17 Whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks through Him to God the Father.
The little gift of the widow,
MAR 12:42-44 the poor widow came and put in two small copper coins, which amount to a cent. Out of her poverty, put in all she owned, all she had to live on.
The little water pots in which Jesus performed His first miracle,
One of the great differences between success & failure is the importance placed on the little things.
