Most of the times children of God have failed to reach their destiny because of the road blocks that the enemy has planted before them. It is unfortunate and sad that most people do not realize that it is not ok to be where they are because God’s promise is that His children should be heads, and not the tail; and be above only, and never beneath but only to those that will hearken unto the voice of the Lord (Deuteronomy 28:13).
Gates are barriers that can give access or prevent access. It is the same thing spiritually that there are gates that limit our lives to receive what God has destined. These can be gates of poverty, sickness, limitations, failure at the edge of a miracle, and anything that you can think of that the enemy is using to prevent you from reaching your destiny.
Isaiah 45:2 tells us that God said He will break in peaces the gates of brass, and cut in sunder the bars of iron; and to give the treasures of darkness, and hidden riches of secret places. This is God promising to break the gates on our behalf just as He did with Cyrus whom he referred to as being anointed, yet God saw the need to break in peaces the gates of brass in order to open before him the two leaved gates.
We believe that God’s word is always faithful to those who believe and if God promised that time to do it, He will do it for us right now. The only problem is that we have not asked Him to break the gates that are preventing us access to get to where we want to be. I know some people will say that we are now under grace since Jesus died and everything has to go on its own.
Yes, I believe with you in that but after receiving Jesus Christ, we now have the legal right to command whatever came during the time that we did not know to leave us and God is able to hear our prayers.
We have one tool to use to command the gates hindering us to break and open; and that is the word of God. The Bible tells us that the word of God is quick and powerful, and sharper than any two edged sword; piercing even to the dividing a sunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow (Hebrews 4:12).
As we start asking God to break gates, opportunities will begin to open, and things that we thought were impossible will become possible. The job that you thought you cannot do, you will now be able to do as God removes the hindrances allowing you to claim what belongs to you.
Don’t give the enemy any more chances to continue stealing. He has stolen from God’s children for too long and this is a year to take back what belongs to us. “And from the days of John the Baptist until now, the Kingdom of heaven suffers violence, and the violent take it by force” (Mathew 11:12).
