Great, Effective, and Spacious Opportunities are Coming Your Way!
Great, Effective, and Spacious Opportunities are Coming Your Way!
by Keith Miller
Have you been faithful in what God has given you? If so, say goodbye to mediocre! God is promoting the faithful and opening great and effectual doors, gates, and wells this year. You are about to awaken into realms of the vastness of God, into new fields of His grace and favor—Rejoice! The Captain of hosts goes before you!
God is Opening Your Future
Promotion is here. There is great favor coming for the next level of your destiny! “For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the LORD, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope” (Jeremiah 29:11).
The Lord is opening your future; new doors of opportunity and breakthrough, anointing and favor in new fields. You will not have to strive, because your ceiling will be your floor for the next level! You will not start at square one either, because that “block” or realm of destiny that you have established and have been faithful to accomplish will be your starting point; bigger and greater doors will open to you.
This is the year of expansion in the Kingdom of God! Tent pegs will span to the north, the south, the east, and the west in the realm of revelation in the dominion of the Kingdom, where you will walk in a greater dimension of the manifestation of the Kingdom for your life!
Many have hoped, dreamed, and prepared for this moment. I hear many saying they feel they are in a time of transition. The faithful are dreaming big and daring to believe the impossible to be possible. If this is you, God has already prepared you for new opportunities and fields. Whatever He has planned for you will be in greater effectiveness for the Kingdom.
God is Promoting You
Faithfulness to your calling brings promotion from God and spacious opportunities in the Kingdom. This translates as great favor and influence. Perhaps you are in the marketplace and God will give you new business opportunities to influence people for the Lord Jesus. If you are in ministry, wells of salvation and healing may open, for instance, in various cities or regions. Or you have a talent and perhaps God will open a door in the entertainment industry for you.
Whatever it looks like, be careful that you do not compare or define greatness as anything other than the fulfillment of that which He has called each of us to do. You may see someone doing something that is more monumental in scope than what you have been called to, but what you are doing is equally as great if you are fulfilling it. “Rejoice with those who rejoice…” (Romans 12:15). Rejoice with those who rejoice over their breakthroughs! It strengthens you and may even help your breakthrough come more quickly.
The Church is taking a new direction today. We are learning not to look to man for promotion. It has failed in the past—we are always let down because people will always let us down. But when we come into the revelation that HE opens the door that no man can shut, we don’t look to man for promotion any longer. We look to HIM, and we walk through our doors.
Great and Effective Opportunities
The word great in context of “a great and effective door” means “large and spacious.” God is about to reveal Himself in such a way that will cause you to walk out this year in awe of Him, for His glory. Great doors in the Spirit will swing open. Old and new gates are opening.
“Great” also means “blessings; to have stature; great and old.” Gates of redemption; gates of blessings; large, spacious, prominent old gates will burst open. Wells will overflow with blessings of the Lord. New and old wells, spacious and fruitful! Isaac redug the wells of his father, giving them their original names, honoring Abraham. Afterward, Isaac built a new well, calling it Rehoboth, which meant, “a spacious well; a place of fit; a place of fruitfulness” (see Genesis 26:22).
Get Ready for Your Rehoboth!
Doors, gates, and wells—spacious, great, new, old, fit, and fruitful—are opening in your life. The door of Revelation 4:1 will open to you, the door to the “come and see” place of revelation. Do you know what makes that door so powerful? The One who sits on the throne and says, “Come up here! I have opened up the door for you. Come up here!”
Fresh encounters are coming with the Lord Jesus Christ to release impartation and bring forth fruitfulness for the Kingdom. Your time in communion with the Lord will raise you to that “Come up here, let me show you something you didn’t know before” place for substantial breakthrough.
Effectual Working of His Power!
Check out the literal meaning of effective: to be at work; for something to be effectually active in your life; the opposite of being idle or inactive or ineffective. These are not idle, inactive or ineffective opportunities, friends, but huge opportunities for breakthroughs.
In the Greek “opportunity” alludes to a door. The Lord is opening old and new gates, wells and doors, releasing blessings to see the effectual working of His power so that you can enter into His promises for your life with amazing confidence and power.
The Captain of Hosts Goes Before You
Paul’s opened door was a great and effectual opportunity. But he said that many enemies were there. We know that to be true, don’t we? The greater the opportunity to advance the Kingdom it seems the greater the droves of enemies there are to thwart the plans of God.
God is Dealing with Adversaries
The Lord is busy on your behalf dealing with your adversaries! As you walk through the doors, as you tap into your Rehoboth, as you hear the gate-locks click open, nothing will stop you from passing through or tapping in. Opportunities and breakthroughs that should have happened, that you received promises for, that you knew were to happen right away because you received a prophetic word and confirmation and you decreed “yes” and “amen,” will have no major hindrances.
Rivers you knew you were supposed to cross into the fulfillment of God’s promises, but couldn’t because of intense battle, will be crossable because the Lord will release angels to fight the battle for you.
An Anointed Wind
As the Philistines prepared to war with Israel, David, as he always did, inquired of the Lord for His counsel. God gave him the timing as to when to come against his adversaries. “And let it be, when you hear the sound of a going in the tops of the mulberry trees, then you shall go out for the Lord will go before you to smite the Philistines” (2 Samuel 5:22-25). When David heard the sound of “a going,” he moved confidently forward…in victory!
This anointed wind speaks of much activity coming from the throne room of God, released on your behalf to bring forth breakthrough. When you hear the sound you will know that the battle is being fought for you at your gate, well, or door.
Revelation of the Captain of Hosts
Do you know the Captain of hosts? Revelation of Him gives you strength and courage to move forward. Joshua had an encounter with the Captain of hosts; he knew what God could do. God told him, “Be strong, be strong.” Joshua knew that when God fought his battles he would win. If God is for you, who can be against you? Joshua, in leading God’s people, moved forward in strength knowing that God had gone before them.
The Captain of hosts opens before you the double doors so that gates will not be shut. He goes before you to make the crooked places straight. He breaks in pieces the gates of bronze and cuts the bars of iron, to give you “the treasures of darkness and hidden riches of secret places” (Isaiah 45:1-3). Iron gates are symbolic of gates that are shut, withholding something. When God breaks them in pieces, whatever is withheld or hidden within them will be released.
“Rain down, you heavens, from above, and let the skies pour down righteousness; let the earth open, let them bring forth salvation, and let righteousness spring up together. I, the LORD, have created it.“—Isaiah 45:8
Wells that have been swelling, swelling, swelling with salvation and righteousness will suddenly burst open and gush forth. Expect to see spacious flows of the wells of salvation and righteousness spring forth in cities and regions. Trickles will become flows!
“Behold, God is my salvation, I will trust and not be afraid; ‘For YAH, the LORD, is my strength and song; He also has become my salvation.”‘—Isaiah 12:2
Prepare For Promotion
Strengthen Yourself in the Lord! David was anointed king over Israel three times before he actually functioned in the office of king. During that time, the Lord had him go through a season of preparation before he ruled and reigned over Israel. David learned how to strengthen himself in the Lord, and in this strengthening he learned how to walk in the encouragement in which he fought and won his battles.
Sing and Pray unto the Lord. Many of David’s battles were won through singing and praying unto the Lord.
Shout! Your shout is key to winning the battle. That’s right. The next time you feel a shout rise up in your belly, don’t hold it in! When I know that something is happening in the Spirit, or when the Lord tells me He’s prepared a straight path and opened up a gate, or that He has just done something for me, I’m like, “Yeah!”
Stop Beating Yourself Up! “And to the angel of the Church in Philadelphia write, ‘These things says He who is holy, He who is true, “He who has the key of David, He who opens and no one shuts, and shuts and no one opens“: “I know your works. See, I have set before you an open door, and no one can shut it; for you have a little strength, have kept My word, and have not denied My name.”‘”—Revelation 3:7-8
If you are faithful in the measure He has given you, He will give you open doors. Some people are of the mindset that they have to be more faithful and beat themselves up that they are not faithful enough. But if you are faithful in the measure He gives you, He will open the door which no one can shut. When He opens the door, it will stay open; He will deal with the adversary.
It is also true of when He shuts doors. Once He shuts a door, no one can open it back up. There may be some doors that He will shut in your life so that the enemy can’t pass through. When Jesus closes a door, it is shut and sealed by His Blood; the enemy cannot reopen it.
This is the time to shed some old stuff and step into those new things God has for you. Don’t try beating against a door already closed, you will wear yourself out trying to reopen it. Just trust God to open the new one for you!
God is about to release keys of access to exciting new doors! Favor, promotion, and restoration are coming! What are those doors, what will favor, promotion, and restoration mean to you?
