Text: Matthew 16:17-19
God intended man to have control over his life and make the best out of it. He never wanted man to be controlled by the forces and circumstances of life. Before Jesus went to the cross, He told His disciples in Matthew 16:19 "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."
Jesus was telling them that He will give them the keys of the kingdom of God to control their lives here on earth. God wants us to be in control of what happens to us. He wants the only things that happen in our lives to be the things we allow, as we walk in tune with heaven's agenda for our lives. Don't allow Satan hijack your life. Your destiny is what you make out of it. It is what you allow that heaven will allow but heaven won't do anything about a negative occurrence or situation if you don't.
The keys are with you. They have been handed to you by God. Make the best use of them to make your life what you want it to be. Nobody, not even the devil has the ability to control the affairs of your life. You are the sole controller of your life. Even God can only do as much as you want Him to. But it is always best to permit Him to get involved in all your affairs. Because for you to make the best of your life, heaven has to seal it. Remember, it is when heaven's seal of approval is on what you want done, that it will be done.
Keep winning daily.
Dear Lord, thank you for giving me the keys of the kingdom to control the affairs of my life. Only what I allow in my life is allowed. Satan's influence is cut short in my life. And as I work with You, I receive the seal of approval to keep winning daily in my life, in Jesus' name. Amen.
