“I will place the key of the House of David on his shoulder; what he opens, no one can close; what he closes, no one can open.” Isaiah 22:22 (HCSB)
This is the year of the open door! It is an amazing how a tiny key can open big locks and huge doors! God has placed keys in our hands. This is the year when things we have tried to open in the past will open up for us! Some of these doors will require a key, while others God will make a way to move forward!
Open doors are not simply meant to stand in. Doorways are for passing through. They represent stepping out of an old and going into a new season. It means going where we have never gone before. Going through the doorway requires faith and a willingness to follow Jesus no matter where He leads.
There are a number of types of doors being opened for us this year. Don’t look for doors that are familiar. Ask the Lord to give you eyes to see the doors He has for you and the faith to go through them. I recently heard Jane Hamon say that there are doors that are unlocked but require us to push on them (faith sensitive), there are doors that will open as we walk toward them (motion sensitive) and there are doors that will open as we make declarations (voice sensitive).
Jesus told us that we have the keys to the kingdom and what we bind is bound, what we lose is loosened (Matthew 16:18-19). These keys are in our hands waiting for us to use them on the doors that are set before us. Ask the Lord to show you these keys and where they are to be used! Jesus told us in this same passage that the “gates” or doors of hell will not prevail against the Ekklesia! As we press forward this year, the enemy will be overwhelmed by the Church rising up in her authority and destiny!
Jesus said that He stands outside our door, knocking and waiting for us to open to Him (Revelation 3:20). This is the year to open that door and let Jesus come into your life in ways He has never been before. This is a year of deeper intimacy with Him!
John saw a door standing open in heaven, then the next thing he knew he was standing before the throne of God, in all of its glory (Revelation 4:1). As we go through the doors that God has set before us in 2024, be ready for greater revelation of God and His glory!
In Genesis 28:12 we see Bethel as doorway between heaven and earth. Expect this year for God to open up portals, doorways between heaven and earth. Be asking and looking for heavenly activity on earth, from Holy Spirit moving where He hasn’t moved before, to increased and tangible angelic involvement around you!
And understand this, open doors are for a season! In Genesis 7:16 (NLT) we find the LORD closing the door on the Ark. The hour of grace will pass, and the opportunity to go through the door will be gone. Please do not miss what God is setting before you! Be ready to step through the doors in 2024!
Thank You Lord for this year of the open door. Grant us grace, faith and courage to see and go through whatever You set before us in 2024. Reveal Yourself, Your glory, and Your plans to us. Make a way where there hasn’t been a way! May this be the year the gates of hell shake from the awakened Ekklesia as she arises into her destiny and authority!
