A Ugandan proverb says, “When God decides to bless a person, even his bull produces young ones.” Jesus said it best: “See, I have set before you an open door, and no one can shut it” (Revelation 3:7). Not even our enemies and frenemies can determine our fate or prospects. Not their envy, hatred, plots, and verdicts. It’s not our wisdom or strength that overturns the odds against us. Nor our abilities, position, connections, or looks that secure opportunities. And it’s not our goodness that qualifies us for salvation or ministry. Rather, it’s “He who has the key of David, He who opens and no one shuts, and shuts and no one opens” (v. 8). Christ will open your shut doors, if you’ll open your heart’s door to Him (v. 20).—Samuel Koranteng-Pipim
