In the story of Elisha and the widow in 2 Kings 4, the widow’s husband had died and the creditors were coming to take her two sons to be slaves. Elisha instructed her to borrow many vessels, go into her house and shut the door behind her. In fact, he told her to shut the door behind her two different times. Perhaps there are doors in your past that need to be shut, such as the doors of negative and critical thinking. Or there is the door of fear – every time you come close to success, it has been ripped away from you. Then there is the door of unforgiveness. It has been said that bitterness and unforgiveness can split up many marriages and can hack the heart of many a divorcee. When you shut the door on the past, you open the door to your success! As the prophet Isaiah tells us in Isaiah 43:18-19 NASB, “Do not call to mind the former things, or ponder things of the past. Behold I will do something new, now it will spring forth; will you not be aware of it? I will even make a roadway in the wilderness, rivers in the desert.”
