Every day we are faced with decisions. Some are minor and won’t affect our overall life. Others, however, will have generational impact. It can be difficult to truly know which direction to turn, especially when we are presented with opportunities that appear “perfect” on the surface. Though many articles have been written on how to know when God is closing a door, there are times when we must ask ourselves, “Is this open door really from God?”
In my own life, I have found that there are many great opportunities, but some are merely a “holy distraction.” In other words, just because the opportunity is a good idea does not make it a God idea. Just because something would be applauded by many doesn’t guarantee it’s for you in this moment. There are some things that you simply should not be involved in, no matter how tempting or glorious they may appear.
With this in mind, here are seven reason to NOT walk through an open door.
