(Mat 16:19 NKJV) "And I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven, and whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven."
Continued from yesterday, August 23, 2011…
What we do and here on earth can be very powerful. Everything we do has lasting consequences in the natural realm (stuff we can see with our eyes) and in the spiritual realm (stuff we can’t see with our eyes).
There is a whole world that lives beyond what we see with our eyes. There is a constant battle being fought in the spiritual realm. The world behind the scenes is alive and on the move as darkness wrestles against light.
Jesus told us that we have authority because he gave us the keys of the kingdom of heaven. This authority allows us to bind and loose things. This is for every single one of us who is a follower of Christ.
Jesus was speaking to his disciples when He said these words, but they apply to every one of us. Our lives don’t have to be a constant up-and-down of wrestling matches with the enemy and his evil spirits.
We can speak with the authority given to us and change things in the spiritual atmosphere. Does this mean nothing bad will ever happen? No. But it does mean that we can influence the events and circumstances in our lives.
