Today’s Daily Lesson comes from 2 Corinthians chapter 11 verses 32 and 33:
32In Damascus, the governor under King Aretas set a guard on the city of Damascus in order to seize me,33but I was let down in a basket through a window in the wall, and escaped from his hands.
There is an old saying, “When all the doors close on us, God opens a window.”
When the whole city was looking for Paul and all the gates had been closed to pin him in, then God opened a window and he was lowered out of a window in a basket — just like baby Moses. And when Rahab was harboring the Israelite spies, she let them down and out through her window before the Jericho watchmen could find them. Maybe, as a prostitute she had lowered many a visitor out of that same window beforehand; the LORD works in mischievous ways! And when the whole world seemed lost, drowned in the flood of its own sin, the God opened a window for the dove to go out and find dry land.
When the doors are shut and there seems like there’s no escape, try the windows. Look for windows of opportunity.
Look for the God of windows.
