What He Opens No One Can Shut

You have no idea how many messages I receive literally every day from young people who are sharing with me how God is pressing upon their heart to go into a ministry. So, I want to prepare this message to advise and encourage those young people and also to encourage you, a Christian.

Jesus said, “My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me.” (John 10:27)

We all who profess to follow Christ are Jesus’ sheep and Jesus is our Shepherd. And our Shepherd said, we listen to His voice and follow Him.

But it is getting harder and harder every day to listen to our Shepherd’s voice. We sometimes get confused. Some people come and prophesy on us in the name of Jesus, telling us to serve God in ways that we are not gifted and called.

But if we stay focused on our Shepherd as we cling to His words and promises, we will be able to clearly hear His voice and follow His lead. We don’t end up going astray or panic when people close doors on us. We calmly wait for our Shepherd to open another door, a door that no one can shut.

So, I want to encourage all of you to first find your call and once you identify your call, strive to grow in it.

I will try my best to have this video captioned in English for those of you who can’t understand Amharic.
