When one door closes, another opens; But we often look so long and so regretfully upon the close door that we do not see the one that has opened for us. – Alexander Graham Bell
God says, “I will give him the key to the house of David – the highest position in the royal court. When he opens doors, no one will be able to close them; when he closes doors, no one will be able to open them.” – Isaiah 22:22
I thank You for the Grace of being alive this morning;
I thank You for the sleep that has refreshed me;
I thank you for the chance to Make a New Beginning.
“When You Through Deep Waters, God says, I Will be with You!” ~ Isaiah 43:2
No matter what you face in the future, you will never face it alone. This is the key to courage: There is nothing to fear when you know God is near.
Some of you feel alone right now. You may feel it, but you’re not! You’re not alone. God sees what you’re going through. God cares about what you’re going through. God’s going through that situation with you, and he will help you out if you trust him. Remember, one plus God equals a majority.
“When you go through deep waters, I will be with you. When you go through rivers of difficulty, you will not drown. When you walk through the fire of oppression, you will not be burned up; the flames will not consume you.” (Isaiah 43:2 NLT)

For all their differences, when Donald Trump takes the oath of office to succeed Barack Obama on Friday, one small but symbolic similarity will be on display. Trump will place his hand on the Bible that President Lincoln used at his first inauguration, the same one President Obama used at both of his swearing in ceremonies.
