{ Day 252 }

by | Sep 9, 2011 | Devotionals, Prayer

“He [Jesus] who has the key of David, He who opens and no one shuts, and shuts and no one opens” … I have set before you an open door, and no one can shut it. —Revelation 3:7-8, NKJV

Jesus quoted this prophecy and applied it to His church. Jesus has the authority of David, and He will release it to His servants in the church. This is a promise for people after God’s own heart. When we seek Him and His power in obedience and intimacy, Jesus releases the authority to open and shut doors in the Spirit. This is how He interacts with you and me. Jesus prophesied that His disciples would experience an open heaven, speaking of opening a doorway of blessing in the Spirit. Jesus said, “Most assuredly, I say to you, hereafter you shall see heaven open, and the angels of God ascending and descending upon the Son of Man” (John 1:51, NKJV). We are invited to live under that open heaven! When God finds a corporate people wholeheartedly pursuing Him with the heart of David, He will open and shut doors in the spirit and in the natural. Doors of darkness will be shut in the spirit, and evil things in the natural will dry up. Positive doors of light and righteousness will be opened in the spirit, and righteous things in the natural will flourish.

{ PRAYER STARTER }

I thank You, Father, for the miraculous privilege of living under Your open heaven. Open the doors You desire to be opened in my city and nation, Lord, and flood us with Your light. Shut the doors that allow Satan and his darkness to creep in and deceive Your people.

We are to be a people of power, opening and
shutting doors according to the will
and power of the Lord.
