The same God that opens doors will close doors. Maybe you prayed and didn’t get the job you really wanted or a relationship didn’t work out. It’s easy to allow rejection to lead to discouragement and think that God is not working in your life. But God sees the bigger picture for your life. He knows where every road is leading and where the dead ends are. Proverbs 20:24 says, “A person’s steps are directed by the Lord. How then can anyone understand their own way?” When you realize you are in the palm of God’s hand and that nothing happens without His divine purpose, then you will begin to see and realize that the closed doors are just as important as the open doors.
Taylor Swift is the only woman in music history to release three #1 albums in a row, each selling more than five million copies, a milestone achieved only by the Beatles, the Rolling Stones, and Michael Jackson. She’s written every song on all of her albums and has world-wide record sales of more than 22 million albums and 50 million song downloads. She’s won six Grammy Awards and is the youngest winner in the history of the Grammy Award for Album of the Year.
Comparison will be the number one thing that will keep you from doing what God’s calling you to do. He’s put a gift and a call and a desire in your heart that is different than anyone else’s. And you’re wired that way for a reason.
