Powerful keys to unlock your destiny

Sometime back I received a prophetic word which stated the many things I have prayed for will come to pass, but in order to receive them, I would need to use my keys.

The word was specific as to the things I had been praying for, and it was not a generic God knows the desires of your heart word.

This encouraged me greatly, and I thanked the Lord in my prayers that what I was sensing in the spirit was right.

I tucked the word away and forgot about it.  A few days ago I kept hearing the still small voice of the Lord saying, use your keys, and I was reminded of this word. 

I dug it up, re-read it and understood.  In this particular word, I needed to use my keys which represent authority,  to obtain my promise.

What are those keys, anyway?  I had to do some serious meditation to get my answers.

I have found these following keys that I or anyone can work with:

  • Praise and worship
  • Prayer. Not praying out of fear, but out of faith
  • Using the name of Jesus in my prayer time. The effective fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much.
  • Fasting. There are many books and teachings on fasting, but to give you the short answer, your flesh comes under the submission of the Lord. Isa 58:6  “Is this not the fast that I have chosen: To loose the bonds of wickedness, To undo the heavy burdens, To let the oppressed go free, And that you break every yoke?
  • Obedience. Obey those in leadership, your pastor and obey the word of the Lord for your life.
  • Serve. Jesus came to serve, and we should do the same
  • Rest. Rest in the Lord and believe.
  • Right heart attitude, make sure your heart is right in each action you take.

What can cause your keys to not work?

  • Ignore you have keys, which is what I did until I was reminded
  • Unbelief and doubt, not believing the word of God, or that He even cares about you.
  • Laziness. Not using your time wisely in meditation of the scripture and prayer
  • No placing the Lord first in your life


Have I received my desires?  Not all of them. I am still waiting, and even while I wait, I know God is at work in me and through me and for me. 

Waiting increases faith, and to be honest, can be difficult, but as the song goes, I trust and obey.
