The Key That Opens The Gates Of God

The Key That Opens The Gates Of God…

We find in the Book of Psalm: “Enter His gates with thanksgiving … and His courts with praise.” Most believers take this as a command. In other words, if you are going to enter His courts, enter with thanksgiving.

The truth of these words goes deeper than that. It’s not only a commandment but a secret, “a key.” You see, to enter the gates, you need the key of the Lord. And the key to unlock the gates in order to enter is the key of thanksgiving.

You could read the Scripture this way: “The only way you will ever truly enter the gates of the Lord is with thanksgiving.” It doesn’t matter what’s blocking you; if you give thanks to God, you can enter.

So when you give thanks, it’s impossible to be gloomy, or to worry, or to dwell in condemnation. When you give thanks, you enter His joy and His peace.

When you give thanks, it’s hard not to worship. You want to enter the gates of the Lord, start right now. You have the key. Enter his gates with thanksgiving.

Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise; give thanks to him and praise his name. Psalm 100:4

Before presenting your list of wants and desires, take a few minutes to first give thanks to God for all that He has done in your life.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
