The Open Door

The reading guide I am following for some of my devotional reading has me reading through the book of Revelation to end the year.  Today’s reading was Revelation 4.  The opening of verse of this chapter gave me pause this morning.  The verse says, “After this I looked, and there before me was a door standing open in heaven.”

As I meditated on this passage, the image that kept coming to my mind was an open door in heaven.  I imagined a door that had been left cracked open just a bit – probably by accident.  I imagined my desire in wanting to sneak a peek inside – to get even a glance of what might be on the other side of the door.

Open-Doors

I began to pray that God would allow me to have a glimpse of him today and experience his nearness – even for just a moment.

And then it dawned on me like the sun that was rising outside my window – God left that door open on purpose – – for me!

God gives each of us the opportunity to experience his presence each and every day.  The question is, do we take the opportunity when it arises.  Or are we so preoccupied with getting things done that we fail to even see the chance when we have it?

God is leaving the door to heaven open for you today.

Take a peek!
