Your Kingdom Come

Good Morning.  Here’s Today’s Nugget to chew on:

“Your Kingdom Come”

Matthew 6:9-10 New King James Version (NKJV)

9 In this manner, therefore, pray:  Our Father in heaven, Hallowed be Your name. 

10 Your kingdom come.  Your will be done On earth as it is in heaven.

Further Thought:  Contrary to what others may say, the God of the Bible can’t do whatever and whenever He wants to.  He was serious when He gave the earth to Adam.  Even after Adam sinned and gave up his authority, God then had to get Mary’s permission in Luke 1:26-38 to get the savior (Jesus) on earth, to restore all that was lost.  Yes, today God is still seeking Kingdom authorization through us [His Chruch] to work in us both to will and to do of his good pleasure, according to Philippians 2:13. 

Most of us recognize today’s passage as part of the model prayer Jesus taught his disciples to pray.  And now He’s given us the same mandate to pray what is already settled [complete/done] in heaven be done on earth [in our lives, communities, cities, and nations].  So, when we pray in this manner in faith [believing what we say], God, the father will ensure it comes to pass according to John 16:23-24.

Have a great day and keep chewing on God’s Word.
