He Holds the Keys - Joel Osteen Ministries daily devotional 18 August Thursday
“I am the Living One; I was dead, and now look, I am alive for ever and ever! And I hold the keys of death and Hades.” (Revelation 1:18, NIV)
He Holds the Keys
you ever been locked out of your car or house? It can be very
frustrating and inconvenient. Not having your keys can keep you stuck
and unproductive. It steals your time and can steal your peace and joy
if you let it.
the same way, we need spiritual keys to access what God has for
us—eternal life, peace, freedom and blessing here on earth. But we don’t
have to stand on the outside and be frustrated because Jesus holds the
keys, and He has opened the way for us to walk through the door of
eternal life. Eternal life begins the moment you make Him your Lord and
Savior. You don’t have to live in defeat, mediocrity, sickness, sin or
any kind of bondage any longer; you have access to the abundant life
Jesus came to give!
if you feel stuck, locked out or defeated, remember, Jesus is the one
who holds the keys. All you have to do is call on His name, and He will
answer. He promises to hear you and will deliver you. He wants to be the
hero of your story, so call on Him today and receive the victory He has
prepared for you!
A Prayer for Today
God, I boldly come to You thanking You for giving me access to eternal
life through Your Son, Jesus. I surrender every area of my heart to You
and invite You to make me whole and complete. Set me free from every
bondage so I can live free in You in Jesus’ name. Amen.”
