GodReflection: Power Words
At birth, God gave me a secret key. It is one of a kind. It only opens one lock. Only I can access the key. It is the key allowing God entrance into my heart and life.
God begs everyone on the face of the globe to use his or her unique God-issued key so he can act. He wants to save. He wants to do it now. It is not a miracle of the future. Through the act on the hill outside of Jerusalem and the resurrection from a tomb, God is able to save what Satan wants to destroy.
There is no need for timidity. Listen to the author of a letter sent to Hebrew Christians many decades after the crucifixion of Christ.
Because Jesus lives forever, he has a permanent priesthood.Therefore, he is able to save completely those who come to God through him, because he always lives to intercede for them.Such a high priest truly meets our need—one who is holy, blameless, pure, set apart from sinners, exalted above the heavens.
God through Jesus demolished Satan’s fence that separated the Creator from his creation. He is now able to save. The key is in man’s hand.
Both the good news and the bad news is I am the only one who controls my God issued key. The Satanic residual within me always campaigns against the use of the key to allow God access. The evil one didn’t want me to use it when I declared to God, “I’m in.” Santa would love nothing better than to see me ask God to leave so I can relock the door.
Why would I ever want to make such a fatal decision? Look what I have going for me with the door unlocked.
It is only when I let God work in my life that I can enjoy the unique—one of a kind—original me. Since I am an original creation, God and I create unique goodness that only we can create. No one else has my exact set of abilities, my exact set of friends, or my exact set of opportunities.
Faith cannot grow with me at the controls of life.
I receive unbelievable satisfaction with God inside my life. The excitement is to experience Him work with me toward dreams that demand His participation. Why would I ever want to use my God issued key to lock Him out of my life?
You too have your own unique key issued by the God of the universe. Only you know how to access it. Only you can use it.
Is it still where God placed it? Or, have you unlocked your heart and life for the one who is creating the eternal garden?
If not, you are missing the ride of your life.
