“And I will give you the keys of the Kingdom of Heaven. Whatever you forbid on earth will be forbidden in heaven, and whatever you permit[i] on earth will be permitted in heaven.” Matthew 16:19
“The keys of the kingdom of heaven.” Keys represent ownership and authority. If you own your home you have keys for it. You have keys for your car. You have keys for your safety deposit box. Well, as a child of God you can have keys to the Kingdom of heaven. Praise the Lord! What provision our Father has made available to us. Doesn’t it make you wonder, then, if I have the keys; why do I not possess the kingdom of heaven in a more meaningful way? Positionally, we have the keys, but, experientially, we are still living outside of the kingdom. It just does not make sense.
Having the keys is one thing, using the keys is another issue. Child of God, Jesus has taken back the keys and given them to you.
God has done all that He is going to do for us. He has given us the keys. He can’t use them for us. We have to use them. We have to know and believe that we have the power to change our circumstances for the better. Arise in your spirit today. Refuse to live under your circumstances.
You can do it. You must do it. You will do it. You have the keys. Take the kingdom of heaven by force today and release all that God has for you. It is yours because Jesus paid the price for you to access it. Arise in Jesus’ name and use your keys.
Lord, I will arise and use my keys that You have given to me. Thank You for opening the eyes of my understanding. Thank You that I am not a victim but a victor. Thank You for paying the price for me to live victoriously on the earth. Amen.
