After this manner therefore pray ye:Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil:For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.
Much could be said from these Words of the Master, but for a minute consider these.
"Thy kingdom come. thy will be done in earth as it is in heaven."
There will be a day when the Kingdom is upon the earth in literal, physical manifestation … Thank God He is coming Soon!
Yes that day is coming, but the Kingdom already came.
The King already resides here.
The Kingdom is in our hearts, the Kingdom resides in the heart of every true believer in the Lord Jesus Christ.
The King of kings resides in the heart of every true believer.
He resides in you and I … right now .. every minute of every day.
As to His will being done, that is simply a matter of our obedience isn't it? Every time we say "yes Lord", His will is done. Think of it, every member of the Body of Christ doing what it is called upon to do every moment of every day … how would that effect the world we live in? How would that effect your world personally? I know my days work out much better when I am walking out my life with Him, in the Word and in the Spirit.
Today you are the light of your world, because He is in you.
Today you are a contact point for the Glory of God in your world, your office, your family, your home and relationships, because Christ is in you and He is your hope (confident expectation) of glory.
Today you are an agent of change in your world as you do the will of God.
Today you are an agent of redemption, an ambassador of Christ of Christ in your world.
Today you have the Helper working in you both the willingness and the ability to do the good pleasure of the Father … to do His will.
Today you are blessed going out and coming in, in all you set your hand to because you are listening diligently to the Lord your God and doing what He says.
