This year two wonderful men of God have proclaim a prophetic word from the Lord to His people; one of them said, this is the year of great grace and the other one said that this is the year of the key of David and that means that God will open doors for us that no man can close and He will close doors for us that no man can open; both of these messages are saying the same thing. We will have great grace from the Lord.
The one who said that this is the year of the key of David expounded it a little more in detail by saying God will open doors for us that no man can close and He will close doors that no one can open and that is very good news for us. The one who said that this is a year of great grace is profound because Romans 5:17 read for if by the one man's offense death reigned through the one, much more those who receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness will reign in life through the One, Jesus Christ. So reigning in life is definitely great grace.
If there is a key of David and it is then we need to know what it is and how to use it; that key is praise. Praising God will open the door of grace for us. It worked for Paul and Silas while they were in prison, when they began to praise the Lord, the prison doors opened. Praise worked for Jehoshaphat, king of Judah when three armies came out against him to fight that nation. Instead of arraying themselves for battle they went out with praise and God caused those three armies to turn on each other and they killed each other. When Jehoshaphat and Judah got to the place where these armies were, they found them all dead and so much treasure in their camp that it took them three days to gather it all together for themselves.
The word of God says that He inhabits the praises of His people. Jesus said in Matthew 18:20 for where two or three are gathered together in My name, I am there in the midst of them. When Jesus come, He does not come empty handed; His gift is before Him. Therefore, when we praise the Lord, He will show up with provision in His hand for us and His provision is grace; undeserved favor.
I believe that if we would praise the Lord the things that we have been waiting on for years will suddenly appear. We do not have to ask Him again for those things because He already knows what we need or want all we need to do is to thank Him for it and praise His glorious name.
Praise will open the door for the favor of God to come to us because when we are praising Him we are not focus on ourselves and that is the place where the Lord wants us to be. There was a time when I thought that if I reminded the Lord of all the good things that I did; He would bless me but I was wrong. Yes He will bless us for doing rightly but our right doing suppose to be done because we love Him not because we think that we are righteous because of our self efforts. We will never be blessed according to our righteousness. We are blessed because of Jesus righteousness; therefore, when we praise Him being aware of His righteousness and the gift of righteousness that He has given us, the grace of God will open doors for us.
Praising the Lord is a mighty weapon against the devil because while he is attempting to kill, steal and destroy; God is opening doors for us. It is a slap in his face but he deserves it because he is already defeated.
