The Key to Power
I had to have that key. And I knew that Jesus knew where it was. So I prayed, and asked Jesus for the key. I felt impressed to go back to the store. The lady in customer service handed me the key. With that key, I unlocked the car and unleashed all its power.
There’s also power available to us in our everyday life. The Bible says, “As we know Jesus better, His divine power gives us everything we need for living a godly life” (2 Peter 1:3. NLT).
Unlock the Power
But in order to unlock this power, we need the key. Where’s the key? Jesus has it. Jesus has the master keys. Jesus says, “See these keys in My hand? They open and lock Death’s door, they open and lock Hell’s gates” (Revelation 1:18, The Message). So we need to go to the Man who carries the keys—the master keys to every problem in life.
But don’t overlook and forget to use the one simple key Jesus has given you and everyone else. I’m talking about prayer. Jesus says, “If you believe, you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer” (Matthew 21:22, NLT). Prayer is the key in your hand of faith that will unlock the storehouse of heaven. In that storehouse, you’ll find Jesus, and the keys to everything you need. Just use your key. It isn’t lost. It’s right there in your hand.
