Have you ever lost your keys before? How did it make you feel? Where you calm looking for your keys or were you frantic looking for your keys? If you didn’t find your keys would it have prevented you from going to a certain place? Would it take away time? What would you lose or what was on the line when you lost your keys?
I lost some keys years ago and they are very important to me. I’ve looked for those keys for years not even realizing how important they were. It has kept me from appointments, has taken time for me, prevented me from going certain places, and has kept me in a frame of mind that is not conducive to who I am and what the keys allow for me to do.
The scripture Matthew 16:19 says, “I will give you the Keys of the Kingdom of Heaven whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.” Those are some very important keys to this Christian Life. The lifestyle we lead as Christians is a lifestyle that is not lead one without the keys we need to walk this life. I totally forgot about binding and loosing until I sat down and listened to these prayers I listen to every day on YouTube. The man said it and I came up with the title. It hit me, I lost my keys! If we are to live this life victoriously, successfully and humbly, we have to have our keys! I can’t stress this enough! I know it seems like I’m yelling through all the exclamation marks but it’s how I feel and I want you to get it. Don’t lose your keys! If you have hidden them or forgotten about them or you still can’t find them, well I’m here to tell you Matthew 16:19 says that he will give us the Keys of the Kingdom of Heaven and one major key is binding and loosing; whatever we bind on earth shall be bound in heaven and whatever we loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.
What are we binding what are we losing? When we lose our keys it give someone else the opportunity to pick them up. They know you need the keys but they rather drive your car and not let you know they have your keys. They won’t tell you they have found your keys, the one you been frantically looking for. Do we think the enemy was going to let us know about our keys? He distracted us to forget our keys. We’re looking for our keys on the dresser, the counter, the table, or the hook by the door (metaphorically) when he’s had them all along. Nevertheless, not once did he remind us of our keys he did everything to keep us from remembering about our keys. Instead he saw since we forgot about them due to the distractions he sent. The reason it’s not in the place we left it is because he took them off the dresser, table, counter and the hook by the door when we weren’t looking. He kept them and continue to send distractions in our direction. He knew because we didn’t remember our “car” keys he could “drive our vehicle” with the binding and loosing of our lives.
I want my keys back! I’m going to get my keys back! Now that I have been reminded of my keys and where they’re at, which has been in my spirit and my soul and my heart this whole time, but it’s been on the back burner because of the distractions I allowed to come in and to take my focus. Now I’m more focused than ever and I’m keeping my keys. I hope this encourage you to go look at your word and find the other keys the Lord has given to you. I know I am. I refuse to continue on letting the enemy hold the keys that my Father in Heaven has given me. It’s not going to happen and the words of Homey the Clown, “Homie don’t play that!” Now that I know, now that you know that we have been reminded of our keys we are going to use the mess out of them keys and we’re going to go back and bind and loose those things years ago when we first lost our keys. Therefore, nothing from the past can come into our present to destroy our future. He has no power anymore to hold our keys! Go get your keys! I’m getting mine! Be blessed!
