"But the angel of the Lord by night opened the prison doors, and brought them forth,"(Acts 5:19)
Doors represent opportunities that are in our future!! Yes we have a future, hope of a better day and opportunities that we haven't seen yet. "Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and shew thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not."(Jeremiah 33:3) "Things-Thou knowest not", I can't wait to see what God has in my future that I haven't even thought of yet. In this story in the Book of Acts the religious spirits of the day had shut the true spiritual ministry down and threw away the key, they thought... God had other plans, if you think your life is shut down and there is no way you'll ever fulfill your dreams, THINK AGAIN!! The Angel of The Lord opened the door that was needed to give way to the fulfilling of the Word of God. It is now, when it looks completely impossible and out of the question, that God can step into your world. There is nothing impossible with God, He is the Almighty!! It is time that America wake up and put their trust in God, instead of man, man will only disappoint you again. "I will go before thee, and make the crooked places straight: I will break in pieces the gates of brass, and cut in sunder the bars of iron:"(Isaiah 45:2). God can open doors that no man can close and can make things happen that are beyond our imagination. We must put our trust completely in God because He is our only Hope. When the servants of God were locked in a prison with no hope, God stepped in and made a change that they didn't see possible. "He will keep the feet of his saints, and the wicked shall be silent in darkness; for by strength shall no man prevail. The adversaries of the LORD shall be broken to pieces;"(1 Samuel 2:9-10b)
We are living in the last days and the Word of God is very clear about these times but we often forget about the Promises of God for us that are applicable in any time. "Behold, the eye of the LORD is upon them that fear him, upon them that hope in his mercy;"(Psalm 33:18) If you feel like you are in a prison of some kind, expect to see the Angels of Deliverance because they are on their way!!
