On Seeking God's WIll

"When believers talk about seeking God's will, we often say, 'We will wait and see if God will open a door or close a door.' Perhaps. But this story [of the paralytic, Luke 5:17-26] suggests that sometimes the door is open, sometimes the door is closed, and sometimes we have to tear the door off its hinges, whether by ourselves or with the help of friends."

-- Daniel M. Doriani, Putting the Truth to Work.

Does this mean you have secured a crowbar for the ripping?

Hmmm...good idea, but I was thinking of a Sawsall and some dynamite.
