Worship the One Who Wears the Crown and Holds the Key! - Morning by Morning, May 11, 2020

Morning by Morning, May 11 - Worship the One Who Wears the Crown and Holds the Key!
Good morning, Lord Jesus. From praise to worship to deeply abiding intimacy with You, I want to come close and hear what's on Your heart and follow where Your leading -- Father, Son, and Holy Spirit of God. ...
"And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write:
These are the words of the Holy One, the True One,
who has the key of David,
who opens and no one will shut,
who shuts and no one opens:
I know your works. Look, I have set before you an open door, which no one is able to shut. I know that you have but little power, and yet have kept My word and have not denied My name.... Let anyone who has an ear listen to what the Spirit is saying to the churches" (Revelation 3:7-13).
Like the church in Philadelphia in the days You spoke Your words of Revelation to John, let us be faithful to keep Your word and never deny Your name. Even when it seems we've had little power in the face of all that's come against us, even when it seems it's increasingly harder to stand firm in Your Word without compromise and in faith, give us courage to be faithful, give us power to persevere.
There's great promise for those who overcome in the power and authority of Your name (v. 12). There's great victory over the kingdom of darkness that would seek to overwhelm us and force us to bow down to it and the ways of the world, the flesh, and the devil (v. 9). But in the face of it all, You encourage us hold fast and stand firm: "Because you have kept My word of patient endurance, I will keep you from the hour of trial that is coming on the whole world to test the inhabitants of the earth. I am coming soon; hold fast to what you have, so that no one may seize your crown!" (v. 10-11).
Right now, corona wants to wear the crown. In the next wave of darkness to come, something else will want to wear the crown. But You are the One who wears the Crown! You are the King of kings and Lord of lords! You are the King of glory! You are the King who holds the Key to the of David, the Key of the Kingdom of God! You are the One who is sovereign over all! And You are the One who will have the final say and the last word over all we go through in our world until the kingdoms of this world have become the Kingdom of our God and of His Christ!
Lord Jesus, we crown You with many crowns! We crown You Lord of All! In the authority of Your Word and the power of Your name shut the doors of darkness and open the doors of Heaven in this hour! By the power of Your grace, You'll provide all the power we need! And by the power of Your grace will hold fast, we will overcome, we will keep Your word with patient endurance and victorious faith! And the knowledge of the glory of the Lord will cover the earth as the waters cover the sea! In Jesus' name I pray. Amen!
