Sometimes it’s puzzling to think of why some people receive a breakthrough from God, while others don’t. Our Heavenly Father loves all His children, so why would some seem to miss out on His blessings?
As I pondered this recently, the Lord showed me a picture of a huge metal lockbox being delivered to someone’s house. On the side of the lockbox were large block letters describing its contents:
But there was a problem. Although the recipient of the box was grateful for the unexpected delivery, he had absolutely no idea how the thick metal lockbox could be opened. There was a prominent keyhole under the letters, but where was he to find the key?
Friend, as I prayed about this story the Lord showed me, I became convinced that it’s a message for YOU! Ever since He ordained the first Passover celebration, His desire has been to abundantly shower His people with extraordinary blessings and breakthroughs. But too often, we’ve been like the man in my story: Despite God’s Passover blessings being delivered right to our doorstep, we’ve failed to understand where to find the key.
Now here’s where the story gets interesting…
Seeing no way to access the blessings held in the lockbox, the man was on the verge of giving up. “Perhaps I should just ask the UPS driver to take back the box, because I have no way of opening it,” the distraught man thought to himself.
But at the last moment, he realized something he had completely overlooked: He was already holding a key in his own hand! And to his amazement, that was the very key that opened the box of blessings.
Friend, I have good news for you: The key to unlocking your Passover blessings is already in your hand!
Let me explain…
A Season of Special Blessings
This is the month we celebrate the Feast of Passover, one of three times each year when God offers to bless you with extraordinary breakthroughs (see Exodus 23 and Leviticus 23). He says the feasts of Passover, Pentecost, and Tabernacles are “appointed times” when He will send an angel before you to guard you…be an enemy to your enemies…bless you with provision…remove sickness from you…prevent barrenness and miscarriages…give you a long life…and make you fruitful.
However, these promises are not automatic. They are conditional. Just the like my story about the lockbox on your front porch, there’s an indispensable KEY to unlocking your blessings.
Referring to the covenant blessings offered during the Feasts of Passover, Pentecost, and Tabernacles, Deuteronomy 16:16 says, “None shall appear before the Lord empty-handed.” You see, the celebration of these three feasts represents a cycle of giving and receiving between God and His people…a cycle of Seedtime and Harvest and a wonderful rhythm of supernatural blessings.
Entering Your Promised Land
The Feast of Passover was instituted when God led His people out of slavery in Egypt to begin their journey to the Promised Land, “a land flowing with milk and honey” (Exodus 13:3-5).
What an amazing turnaround! From slavery to freedom. From poverty to prosperity. From the land of “Never Enough” to the land of “More Than Enough”!
Just as God supernaturally blessed the children of Israel during the first Passover 3,500 years ago, He wants to bring you into His land of abundance as you honor Him during the Feast of Passover this month. Just as God’s “appointed times” were meant to be “an everlasting ordinance” (Exodus 12:14), His Passover promises have no expiration date!
Whatever turnaround you need in your life – healing, deliverance, protection, a financial breakthrough, or a restored relationship – your season of blessings will be unleashed when you honor God and celebrate the Feast of Passover as He asked.
Remember…The KEY is already in your hand!
So take a step of faith and obedience…come before the Lord to honor Him with your worship…prepare Him a special offering…then trust that your amazing season of miracles and blessings has been unlocked!
God has made an appointment to meet with you…to speak to you…and to bless you with amazing turnarounds this month. I encourage you to bring Him your special offering, then get ready to experience a new dimension of covenant living!
