"Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you."Matthew 7:7
This week’s movement principle is: Look for Open Doors. God is the One who opens doors no man can shut and closes doors that no one can open. This week consider the sovereignty of God as you go out to plant churches. Ask God to open doors of opportunity to share the gospel and ask Him to close doors that are the wrong ones. There are many ways Christians face open and closed doors, some doors are closed because of warfare from the opposition and some are closed because God is leading you in a different direction. Through prayer, you can ask God to help you discern the open doors from the closed doors. Followers of Christ are often brought before kings and rulers as another way God may open the door. Remember Paul going to Rome before Pilate and Festus? Ask the Lord to lead disciple-makers to households who open their homes and their larger communities to the gospel.
Ask God this week to give everyone involved in church planting movements a sense of their connectedness to the family of Christ as children of God. Practice listening to Holy Spirit daily for where He is sending you to prepare His way.
