BEYOND CLOSED DOORS

John 20:19-20 The disciples were afraid of the Jewish leaders, and on the evening of that same Sunday they locked themselves in a room. Suddenly, Jesus appeared in the middle of the group. He greeted them and showed them his hands and his side. When the disciples saw the Lord, they became very happy.
John 20:26 A week later the disciples were together again. This time, Thomas was with them. Jesus came in while the doors were still locked and stood in the middle of the group. He greeted his disciples

I have been greatly ministered to by some writing of Corrie ten Boom, a lady mightily used of God during and after the Nazi regime.
She says that every person is either a missionary or a mission field. This includes the people in your office, school, neighbours etc. Perhaps you say that you have really tried to be a missionary to them, but you couldn’t because the doors were closed. She advises that instead of using the wisdom of the wise, we should use the foolishness of God. God backs his word even when situations look bleak according to our wisdom. With this foolishness, we believe & allow  Jesus to enter through closed doors.
From the Bible quotations above, closed doors could not stop Jesus from showing himself to his disciples. I believe that Jesus is able to get through closed doors into communities, families, institutions and individuals; and reveal Himself to them. As we pray for open doors for preaching of the word, we should also ask Him to reveal himself to those closed up.
With faith then we should speak, declare & even pray according to God’s word. A pen, however good or expensive may not write on its own; but the hand behind it does. There is a mighty hand that holds us brethren. May we this week, and this year purpose to follow the foolishness of God. May we embark on a vigorous endeavour to invite Jesus in the closed doors. We trust God, even when it appears there is no way (seems foolish for us to pray). Let us not give up because the walls look high and the doors have been shut. Imagine the joy you have when you see God penetrating these grounds! He receives glory
