When someone hears that a door or an opportunity that they thought would remain open to them has been closed, they have one of four different reactions. They can become indignant at the idea that any door that they desire to be open can be closed by anyone. This often is the reaction of someone who believes that he or she controls the workings of their universe. Second, they can express shock and disbelief at the timing of the closure. This often is the reaction of someone who hears God's Word, understands it, and desires to repent, but is not urgent in their repentance.
Upon hearing that the door has been closed, they also can ignore the message, and this is the reaction of someone whose heart is calloused toward God and does not respond to God or to the Words of God. Finally, they can give in to despair and stop pursuing God or the things of God. This is the reaction of someone whose motivation is internal and focused on self, instead of being external and directed toward God. God's love for us is unconditional, and similarly, genuine love for God also is unconditional. If our love for God falters or fails when we don't get what we want or what we believe we deserve, it is not genuine love. Genuine love never falters nor fails, and always is directed toward God first, then toward others, and lastly, toward self.
