“I know thy works: behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it.” (Revelation 3: 8)
God knows what you have done. He knows who you are. He knows the thoughts in your heart and your intentions. Because of His perfect awareness of the truth of you, He also knows what you are capable of. He knows that you include in you the potential for greatness and true satisfaction in it.
And so He sets before you that open door. It may seem that material circumstances close off the portals to true success and contentment. But no man or mortal concept can shut what God has left wide open. It is He that is Life–your life–and He knows where that wonderful life is going and how glorious it simply must be. He sees the goodness that is you, even when you don’t see it yourself, and He awakens you and the world to that radiant Truth of you.
We are constantly being beckoned through that open door to progress and peace. There is nothing holding us back and the password is only our desire to know God, good, and by doing so to also realize our own innocence, His control, and the good life that has more to do with a lasting peace and joy than with fleeting human achievement. God knows the work of His hand. He knows what He made and He will never hide His glory from the world or from you, His own beloved child.
