I’ve Been Given a Key

It is God’s privilege to conceal a matter and the king’s privilege to search it out.

I’ve been given a key

unsure as to what,

have you ever wondered

about a gift you got?


Is this simply a clue?

Does it have a specific purpose?

Why has this been given to me,

could it unlock a surplus?


What exactly is a key?

What is the history?

What am I to do with these?

Unlock hidden mysteries.


Is this a revelation?

A devise to help open,

Does it open a door?

Why am I still groping?

In dire need of wisdom,

I must make a decision.

Searching to know and understand,

the purpose to such provision.


Is it to turn a metal bar?

This mystery given to me.

How can I find this out,

open God’s great treasury?


I’ve been given a gift

I’ve been given keys,

I am beginning to understand,

this language spoken to me.

The Lord longs for us to know,

He wants us to understand,

that indeed He is speaking,

waiting for us to comprehend.

A key is often called a clue.

The lock,  simply to intrigue,

opening to the next level;

We are entering into a new league.


The mysteries are questions.

I wonder where to start?

But then I know the answer,

it is the key to His heart.


Love is the door,

praise is the key,

may we ne’er forget

enter with thanksgiving.

For this is the day

The Lord did make,

let us  rejoice and be glad

for heaven’s sake.

Psalm 100:4

Enter His gates with thanksgiving; go into His courts with praise. Give thanks to Him and praise His name.

Matthew 16:19 CEV

I will give you the keys to the kingdom of heaven, and God in heaven with allow whatever you allow on earth. But He will not allow anything you don’t allow.

I pray we are surrounded with the mysteries of The Lord Jesus Christ and His love that has been poured out for us. I pray today that everywhere we look, we catch a glimpse of His devotion and beauty. Most of all I pray we sense His love in a deeper more intimate way. He is intriguing us with these mysteries. Let’s go search them out.

Thank you for listening with me. Laurette
