The Key

A lock hung firmly in place for years. The contents inside were guarded and protected from view. Not that the treasures inside were so valuable and precious that they needed to be kept under lock and key, it was that they were so shameful the owner desired no eyes would ever rest on them. Worried that anyone would see the truth, chains bound the heart that held the pain.

Until one day.

Hands that held the Master Key, gently, lovingly, tenderly spoke words of comfort as the restraint was removed. No longer under bondage, release was given.

"He is the key to your life". Deuteronomy 30:20

That same verse tells us that the lock remains open by L-oving the Lord your God, O-beying Him, C-ommitting yourself firmly to Him, and K-eeping His commands.

"The LORD your God will change your heart", Deuteronomy 30:6

Maybe your heart, like mine, needs healing. Maybe rust has corroded bringing deterioration, damage and despair. Gradually life has been diminished. You have been exposed to elements that have brought destruction and you sit enclosed in darkness, afraid.

He holds the key my friend. He IS the Key. Allow Him to bring release today. There is freedom in the Name of Jesus. Breathe His Name.

Please, PLEASE listen to the words of this song. He who set the captives free, holds your keys.
