We Have the Keys of the Kingdom

SCRIPTURE:

And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven. (Matthew 16:19)

DEVOTIONAL:

We Have the Keys of the Kingdom

Jesus has given us the keys of the kingdom. Now we take these keys, and whatever we bind on earth is bound in heaven. Whatever we loose on earth is loosed in heaven.

As believers and children of God, we now have authority in His Name to storm the gates of hell. We can speak things that be not as though they were, and all heaven backs us up. (See Romans 4:17.) In His Name, we can lay hands on the sick and they will recover. (See Mark 16:17, 18.) In His Name, we can call resources in—we can speak to a mountain and it will be removed. (See Mark 11:23)

Jesus restored us to God, and when we operate in the authority of the Name of Jesus, every resource in this earth becomes subject once again to the Kingdom of God. Every place we set our foot becomes holy ground, and satan and the disobedient who are following his influence are defeated.

Jesus has legally restored us to our Father God and given us His authority—the authority of His Name. Furthermore, as children of His kingdom, all the riches of God and heaven are ours.

PRAYER:

Dear God, thank you that Jesus has given us the keys of the kingdom. In the authority of Jesus’ Name, I bind the works of the enemy in my life and I loose the power of the Name of Jesus to defeat every attack that has come against my health, finances and family. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
