Today’s Scripture Reading: Isaiah 18:1-23:18
Heavenly Father, when Isaiah confronted Shebna, Hezekiah’s palace administrator and prophesied his fall from that high position, he also told him that Hilkiah would be his replacement and gave him a glimpse of the favor he would receive as the new palace administrator.
I will give him the key to the house of David—the highest position in the royal court. When he opens doors, no one will be able to close them; when he closes doors, no one will be able to open them. —Isaiah 22:22
Lord, You also talked about open and closed doors in Revelation 3:7-8:
Write this letter to the angel of the church in Philadelphia.
This is the message from the one who is holy and true,
the one who has the key of David.
What he opens, no one can close;
and what he closes, no one can open:
“I know all the things you do, and I have opened a door for you that no one can close. You have little strength, yet you obeyed my word and did not deny me.
Lord, I ask You for this kind of favor. I ask You to take care of the doors in my life. Take the hinges off the ones You want me to walk through and throw away the keys of the ones that aren’t in Your plan for my life.
I trust You.
In Jesus Name. Amen and Amen!
