“Why does God allow my heart to be broken over and over again? I’m quite sure many of us have asked this question in hopes that we would gain some form of closure or knowledge in that particular situation.
I can almost hear God whispering back “because, I never intended for you to open that door to begin with.” Truthfully speaking I have no real answer for that because, God’s ways are so mysterious and something that the human mind can’t begin to comprehend. As it’s writing in Isaiah chapter 55 the Bible clearly states that “his thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways…”
So let’s take a moment and think back on a time during childhood when your hand was smashed in a door…(((OUCH)))!!! Not only did this hurt but, more than likely your parent picked you up and lovingly comforted you in the midst of that very painful experience while also warning you to be cautious next time.
In the same way that you would see a parent protecting and warning their child. God’s loving hands provides the same for us. We have to understand that God is our spiritual father although we may think we know what we want or need, God is already three steps ahead of us opening and closing doors to ensure the best for his child.
If in fact God is trying to close a door in your life, allow him to close it because, he loves you so much that he’s only trying to save you from something later on down the line. Just remember God created you, so trust in him that he knows what’s best for you.
Now examine yourself and reflect on a relationship or situation in your life that God is trying to close the door on and ask yourself why do I continue to override the Holy Spirit and get my “fingers” smashed?
“For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,” declares the LORD. “As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.”
Isaiah 55:8-9 NIV
“would not God have discovered it, since he knows the secrets of the heart?”
Psalm 44:21 NIV
