1. Once GOD opens the door to us, grab it it's ours. GOD already proven it, the way to greatness, is by being a slave of everyone, that's why GOD has a servant's heart, He opens the door for us, when did we opened a door to someone else? No we always open our own doors, but not with GOD, GOD treats us kings.. He opens door for us that no man can shut, if the door were opened by men, or human being, then any human being can close it at our face but not with GOD, it's opened by the Divine only a Divine can close it and that only One is GOD alone. We don't need our own strength for we will use GOD's not ours. We will consume GOD not our own resources.
