The God Who Closes Doors

Hope from Joel Osteen Downloads

Today is an Ozone Action Day Sunday, and Joel Osteen’s message is titled “The God Who Closes Doors”. As I get ready to close the doors on our house, in anticipation of the hot day we are going to have, and to turn the air conditioning on. These are my notes that I took as I watched and listened to Joel’s broadcast today. Please feeReclinerl free to Click Here for today’s Podcast to listen to it for yourself.

Recently I’ve felt that the door has been closed on my writing practice each day, but I don’t know if it was God’s will to close that door or just something that I needed to do for myself? Because I haven’t felt much like writing, although I’m trying to put a few words down on the page today about Joel’s message. We need to realize that our lives are in God’s hands and He has a vision for our future.

Joel quoted these verses of Scripture:


This is the information from This Week’s Message page about today’s broadcast titled The God Who Closes Doors by Joel Osteen:

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.


God closes doors to bless us!

Thanks for Listening,
