God not only wants to unlock things for you in this season, but He also wants to use you to unlock things for others.

Recently, in prayer, the Lord started speaking to me about how the Holy Spirit unlocks things. The Lord also spoke to me about the Holy Spirit being the key. A key unlocks things! I can’t tell you how many times I’ve gone before the Lord in prayer, seeking an answer about a particular situation, and the Holy Spirit will just unlock wisdom and revelation about how to move forward or solve the situation. The Holy Spirit will unlock everything that you need in your life, acting as a key to open up doors for you. Whatever roadblocks or closed doors you have encountered in past seasons, the Holy Spirit is the key. He wants to unlock things for you in this season.

John 14:26 says,  “But when the Father sends the Spirit of Holiness, the One like me who sets you free,  He will teach you all things in my name. And He will inspire you to remember every word that I’ve told you.” The Holy Spirit is the only one who can see you free if you are bound. He is also the one who can unlock your mind and teach you how to live and think the way He does. The Holy Spirit will bring things back to our remembrance that the Word says or something that was inspired by His Spirit at the exact moment we need it. The Holy Spirit will unlock things in your life and bring back to remembrance things that you heard previously that you need in order to move forward now. 

Luke 12:12 says, “Simply be confident and allow the Spirit of Wisdom access to your heart, and in that very moment, he will reveal what you are to say to them.” God will give you the right words to speak and when to speak them if you will make yourself available to the Holy Spirit. Many times we don’t know what to say to someone we are discipling or witnessing to, but the Holy Spirit will give us exactly what to say in order to speak directly into someone’s heart and situation like only He can.

God not only wants to unlock things for you in this season, but He also wants to use you to unlock things for others. The Lord is looking for those in this season who will walk closely with Him, listening for the Holy Spirit to speak in order to unlock freedom and revelation for us and those we encounter. Sometimes the Holy Spirit won’t tell you what to say until you open your mouth in faith. I’ve handed microphones to people in services who said they didn’t have a word because I knew the Lord would use them to speak a fresh word from His Spirit if they would simply open their mouths in obedience. So in this season, don’t be afraid to just open your mouth in this season and let the Holy Spirit unlock in the moment whatever He wants you to say. 

Jeremiah 29:11-13 says, “For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon Me and go and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart.” When we search for God with all of our hearts, our loving Father will unlock the things that we need when we need them. Whether it is wisdom, breakthrough, healing, or the words to speak to someone else, God will give you exactly what you need by His Spirit in the exact moment you need it if you will call out to Him.

The Lord will also give us tests and trials in order to perfect and mature us. The Lord wants our holiness more than he wants our happiness. So if things aren’t always perfect in your life, it is probably because the Lord is pruning you so that you can bear more fruit, not because you’ve done something wrong. The longer you walk with God, the more you will welcome the hard times and hard things because you will see how much they will grow you and your faith if you let them. 

This is your season to hear from the Holy Spirit like never before. Set aside intentional time to allow the Lord to unlock wisdom and revelation for you so that you can move forward with Him and help others do the same. Expect the Holy Spirit to open doors for you to do great exploits for His Kingdom as you seek Him passionately. So in this season, be encouraged. The Holy Spirit is going to unlock things for you, so be ready for it!
