Guard the Keys Entrusted to Your Care
Remember to guard the keys to your home and your heart with your life. NEVER EVER let them out of your sight . Never force a key into a lock it wasn’t meant to open as you will damage the lock and the key. The Lord has the master set of keys and it is He who will open and shut doors.
There are doors that need to be closed and the keys need to be destroyed. These doors and their corresponding keys are doors that we have allowed to be opened in our lives through choices we made to sin. Be it bad relationships or drugs, or alcohol, each of these doors has a key and, if not destroyed, will open the door to these things.
We must examine the keys on our key rings that open doors that should have never been opened causing us to sin and destroy them so that our kids wont find them and open them.
Take inventory also of places you might hide keys if by chance you would lose them . We put keys under mats, in flower pots, etc. in the event we lose the key to our door. These are the keys that no one knows about only you and the Lord. We must destroy these keys and be accountable to assure that they indeed have been destroyed. A door that has been locked and closed to which the Lord is the only key holder is one in which the evil on the outside has no access to you and since you have no key, you have no way of accessing it. Thus it is a door that the Lord has closed. Don’t ask for the keys back!
It is a very emotional thing giving up the keys, especially to something of a sentiment like a childhood home that you grew up in knowing that once those keys leave your hand they are no longer yours and you no longer have access to them . Keys tend to be held onto because of the sentiment that goes along with them, hence doors to our past remain open long after we have become Christians and we allow persons/things/evil spirits to have access to us that should not.
The Lord Jesus nor Satan ever kicked down a door to gain access to our lives for it is we posses the keys that opens the door to them both.
Guard the keys to your home and heart as though your life depends on it because it does!!!!!!!
