Lift up your heads, O ye gates; and be ye lift up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in. (Psalms 24:7 KJV)

 Gates speak of access. They regulate the process of coming in and coming out. There must be control at gates otherwise the reason of erecting them is defeated. There are gates in your life that need to be dealt with today. Stubborn gates that have stubbornly kept you out for as long as you can remember!

Things are what they are not by coincidence. You need to post a guard on every gate in your life that was unregulated and challenge gates that have locked you out from your blessing for this long. Child of God, you cannot slumber on this matter, your adversary the devil is roaming around like a roaring lion seeking whom he may devour (1 Peter 5:8). The Apostle Peter says be sober and be vigilant. You will not be a victim in this season but a victor. Today you will regulate things through prayer.

You must rise in the power of the Holy Spirit and speak as you open every gate of your life to the King of kings but at the same time as you expel every force that had sneaked in causing chaos in your life. It is time to deal with every negative force that was in operation causing those abortions, financial challenges, health issues and joblessness.

I declare every gate that the enemy was using to sneak into your life closed as we open all the gates to God Almighty to have His way in your life.

Declare today,
Every closed gate is open now. I command gates of employment, finance, marriage, promotion and health to open right NOW in Jesus’ name.
