Navigating the course of life can be challenging at times. Some seasons it seems as if doors are readily opening for us, and others it seems as though they’re not only closed but locked. When these situations come we have to place our trust in God and His wisdom and not rely on our strength and knowledge. Doing things our way will get our results, but doing things His way will produce His results which are way better. Even though we may not know the answer in and of ourself, we know The One who does and who holds the keys. #GodWillMakeAWay #TrustInHim #HeHoldsTheKeys #BVC #LakeWorthChurch
“I couldn't earn it, and I don't deserve it, still, You give Yourself away. Oh, the overwhelming, never-ending, reckless love of God. There's no shadow You won't light up, Mountain You won't climb up, Coming after me. There's no wall You won't kick down, Lie You won't tear down, Coming after me.” #thankfulforthecross #heisrisen #hesalive #resurrectionsunday #heholdsthekeys #sillyrabbiteasterisforjesus #easterinlilly
“And to all the things that have kept you away that keep you defeated day after day after day. The heartache that nobody sees that eats at your soul like a cruel disease. He who set the captives free. It is He, it is He who holds your keys!” #heisrisen #heholdsthekeys #godsnotdead #hesalive #imforgiven #heavensgatesareopenwide #happyeaster #sorryrabbiteasterisforjesus
She went to his grave just before dawn but the grave was empty. She didn't understand. ”How could anyone do this!?” she thought someone had taken his body. ☀️ ”Why are you crying?” a man asked. . ”Where did you take him!?” she demanded to know. He had given her everything she just wanted to honor him. . ”Why do you look for the living among the dead?” . ...How could this be!? He's alive? Suddenly she remembered everything he had told her before he died. She had to tell everyone! #HeIsRisen #TheGatesOfHellCouldNotPrevail #HeHoldsTheKeys #Forgiven #HeTookMyPlace #HeTookYourPlace #Easter #TheLamb #TheLion #MySavior #Jesus

Faith is Key! Luke 11:9-11 & Matthew 7:7-9 And I say unto you, Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you. For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened. The only reason I knew God can and will open (literal 😆 ) doors is before this happened to my best friend, the Lord for many years (and still ) since being reborn, would constantly teach me in only the way and humor He can, using keys 🗝. He alone holds the keys. He alone is the way. Humorously enough I became a realtor after my first master key lesson and now work with keys on a daily basis, and when my bestfriend called me asking what to do, I was listing a home that i couldn’t find the keys to the upstairs balcony...until I took my own advice and asked & was lead right to the key! : ) If you know how my revival began, you will know the significance and humor the Lord has with keys and humbling my pride with them & the first profound experience He brought me through to never forget who He is 🗝☺️ I quenched the Holy Spirit, until I came to the end of myself in June/July of 2014 & was humbled to His Power and Promise of the Holy Spirit.I humbled myself and specifically asked the Holy Spirit, the third PERSON of the the Godhead we serve, to teach me Himself, who He is, how He works, and I asked Him to fill me and to guide me. He is Faithful- He took the keys & taught me through the school of hard knocks. : ) That lead to MANY doors being shut and He taught me how to ask and knock on doors that only He could open & to leave alone what He shuts. Knowing I needed to stop doing everything in my own strength and independence, He taught (and is ) teaching me to ask and wait for Him to work. He holds the keys, and no one else can take them from Him, we deceive ourselves thinking we hold anything of control...thankfully He opens the death grip of our hands that we have to hold onto Him and Him alone. God's timing and purpose is perfect. He prepares us in His way for what He is doing in and through us. You cant miss Him, nor can you fail when you let HIM hold the keys and the pen to write
Thank you to everyone who came up and made The Great Exchange this past weekend. We are believing that these acts of faith are going to produce great fruit and change in peoples lives and families. We believe that God will continue what He started in these lives. #thegreatexchange #easter #church #heholdsthekeys #cfcdartmouth
.....because HE lives I can face tomorrow, because HE lives all fear is gone, because I know, yes, I know who holds the future, and life is worth the living just because HE lives... ◇◇◇◇Fear not; I am the first and the last: I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive forevermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death. Rev. 1:17b, 18◇◇◇◇ #helives #sundaymessage #heholdsthekeys #fearnot
. In their fright the women bowed down with their faces to the ground, but the men said to them, “Why do you look for the living among the dead? He is not here; he has risen! Remember how he told you, while he was still with you in Galilee: ‘The Son of Man must be delivered over to the hands of sinners, be crucified and on the third day be raised again.’ ” Then they remembered his words.

When a child asks you what the cross means, you improv with legos. ❤️ Christ’s way of sorrow opened for us a new and living way to God & the serpent (death ) has been defeated! For the Joy He endured the cross —VICTORY IS IN JESUS! 💛 #sewsimply #Psalm127 #HeistheDoor #Heholdsthekeys #Oneway #OneLife #OneTruth #Jesus #Messiah #Myheart
God is there for you! Studies have found that 85 percent of the things we worry about never happen. This means that of all the things you’re worrying about right now, 85 percent of it won’t happen. But what about the other 15 percent? Well, the Lord will be with you in your time of difficulty. God has not promised that we’ll live in a pain-free world. Jesus said, “Here on earth you will have many trials and sorrows. But take heart, because I have overcome the world” (John 16:33 NLT ). We need to face facts. Loved ones are going to die, and hardship will come into our lives. But here is the good news: we live in the land of the dying, but we are headed to the land of the living. Yes, death will come, but we have this promise from Jesus: “Don’t be afraid! I am the First and the Last. I am the living one. I died, but look—I am alive forever and ever! And I hold the keys of death and the grave” (Revelation 1:17–18 NLT ). I’m so glad that He holds the keys. If I had the keys, they would’ve been lost for years now. We can rejoice in the fact that God is in control. He will be with us, giving us what we need, when we need it. #goodmorning #morningbiblestudy #jesusandcoffee #heholdsthekeys #hehasovercometheworld #heiswithyou #nowandforever #takecourage #takeheart #worrynot #trusthisplan
I had an unexpected free day. I made a quick stop to visit my angel. Last night we watched Let there be Light, and though it brought tear streams on my face, it gave me so much peace and comfort when, in the movie, he held his son covered in God’s perfect love, in the tunnel of light. My baby is in that light, I am so thankful that I was able to watch that movie. I will never forget you mamas, and visiting you and thinking about you is mommy’s love for you. And your gift to me. You remind me that every moment alive is precious. And I won’t waste anymore time. I have wasted enough. I live for Him, because He died for me. I live so that I can hold you again. Because you did not get to live , not even for one day, I will not be wasteful with any one day given to me. . Stars-Skillet . If you can hold the stars in place; You can hold my heart the same. Whenever I fall away. Whenever I start to break. So here I am lifting up my heart, to the one who holds the stars. . Last Kiss J. Frank Wilson and The Cavaliers . Oh where oh where can my baby be. The Lord took her away from me. She’s gone to heaven so I’ve got to be good. So I can see my baby when I leave this world. #lettherebelight #skillet #stars #lastkiss #Jesus #hediedforme #iliveforhim #iwillseeyouagain #angelbaby #daughter #mybabygirl #perfect #mypain #hispurpose #deathwhereisyoursting #heholdsthekeys #heovercamedeath #godisgood #nomaterwhat #lordknowswhy
My attitude for today. Today is a very important day and a new beginning for another chapter in our lives. And of course a few things have happened that we didn't plan on. But, I will choose joy and give God all the Glory and the Honor He deserves. Even when things don't go as planned, He holds "The Keys"...Lol.😄 Just a little pun, later today we will have "The Keys".....to be announced!
Happy Easter... Thank you #OniseIyanu Thank you Father for the resurrection that's showed the ultimate power... The highest grandest display of your power. Thank you for the resurrection of Christ because without it ,my faith would have been unfounded. Thank you God for the resurrection,for accepting the perfect sacrifice for sin paid for by your own son. Thank you for paying a debt I couldn't pay... The ultimate principle of substitution... #Hehasrisen #Therisenking #Hediedsoimightlive #deathcouldnotholdHimcaptive #Hallelujah #MyMessiah #gratefulheart #Easter #youremainGod #awesomeGod #incomparableGod #deathcouldnotholdhim #hediedrosenevertodieagain #Heholdsthekeys #Istandinawe

When I saw him, I fell at his feet as though dead. Then he placed his right hand on me and said: “Do not be afraid. I am the First and the Last. I am the Living One; I was dead, and now look, I am alive for ever and ever! And I hold the keys of death and Hades.

““I am the Alpha and the Omega,” says the Lord God, “who is, and who was, and who is to come, the Almighty.” I turned around to see the voice that was speaking to me. And when I turned I saw seven golden lampstands, and among the lampstands was someone like a son of man, dressed in a robe reaching down to his feet and with a golden sash around his chest. The hair on his head was white like wool, as white as snow, and his eyes were like blazing fire. His feet were like bronze glowing in a furnace, and his voice was like the sound of rushing waters. In his right hand he held seven stars, and coming out of his mouth was a sharp, double-edged sword. His face was like the sun shining in all its brilliance. When I saw him, I fell at his feet as though dead. Then he placed his right hand on me and said: “Do not be afraid. I am the First and the Last. I am the Living One; I was dead, and now look, I am alive for ever and ever! And I hold the keys of death and Hades.” Revelation 1:8, 12-18 NIV http://bible.com/111/rev.1.8,12-18.niv #Heholdsthekeys #HeismyGod #theonetrueGod #thealmightyGod #AlphaandOmega #FirstandLast #whowas #whoistocome #Heis #AMEN
