I remember watching a movie where a guy was walking down a hallway through a set of secure doors. What made these doors secure was that there was a camera monitoring them at all times; and when you walked through one door, it had to shut completely before you could open the other door.
This is how it is when we are on a path to our next level. That camera monitoring us is God, who sees all our progress or lack thereof.
He has the levels set up in a way so that unless we complete our current level, the doors to the next level will not open.
There is already in place a set amount of progress God expects us to make before entering a new level; and in the same way God won't change His mind about His blessings, He don't change His mind about His lessons - if we messed up when we should of passed, then we have to take that test over again. If we're passing our tests and showing progress, God sees it and prepares the door before us to open.
So if you're in-between doors, make sure you're moving forward away from the old and into the new! Make sure you're not getting tripped up by the very things that were tripping you up 6 months ago!
And give God thanks for what's coming, even in your in-between place!!! God loves you!
Give your life to Christ
Say Lord I confess my sins, and I make You my Lord and Savior.
