I woke up at 3:30am and 6:30am this morning hearing the word UNLOCK. It was loud in my spirit, and the first time it came with two names, one was Beni Johnson and the other was someone I know. When I woke up the second time, there was no names attached to it, just the word UNLOCK and so I began to pray for Beni and the other other person to be unlocked. But knew this was for more than just those two people. As I have leaned into this word in prayer the Lord led me to define it. Here is what I learned…
Unlock = to undo by turning a key or corresponding part; to give access; to open; to free from restraint or restrictions; to set free; release; to provide a key to disclose or reveal; to release or let loose. (Free Dictionary)
What a powerful word with many ways to approach it. I believer the Lord is unlocking our nation, unlocking us individually and corporately, unlocking communities. I see the Lord unlocking healing, unlocking families, unlocking finances. There is a great unlocking taking place. Since Pentecost this year, we have seen many unlockings, and I see many more coming on the national scene. The verse the Lord led me to look up is Luke 4:18 “THE SPIRIT OF THE LORD IS UPON ME, BECAUSE HE ANOINTED ME TO PREACH THE GOSPEL TO THE POOR. HE HAS SENT ME TO PROCLAIM RELEASE TO THE CAPTIVES, AND RECOVERY OF SIGHT TO THE BLIND, TO SET FREE THOSE WHO ARE OPPRESSED, TO PROCLAIM THE FAVORABLE YEAR OF THE LORD.” Can you see those who are about to be unlocked? I can too.
God has turned a key, the Lord has given access; He is freeing us from restraint and restrictions; the Lord is setting us free. The unlocking has begun and it will continue until our bodies, minds, souls, nations, are unlocked, my friends, the Lord is decreeing over us…UNLOCK!
