Hannah W. Smith wrote: "He goes before to open the way and we are to follow. It is never a sign of Divine leading when we insist on running rough shod over all opposing things." A.W. Tozer asked, “Is it forced? Or does it flow?” Now, this doesn’t mean we sit back and wait for God to show us the door, turn the door knob for us and then drag us in. We still apply some effort. Send out resumes, have interviews, make phone calls, consider options. God wants us to use the common sense He has given us. But if the doors do not open by natural means, forcing our way through them may mean we are rationalizing to get our own way.
