Your Kingdom, Your Will

kingdomCome1I hope you’re discovering sweet release as you apply each phrase of the Lord’s Prayer to a specific prayer request. Today, the answer you seek has the potential to enter the “more than we ask or imagine” realm when you bring your burden before our Father and pray, “Your kingdom come, your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.”

God’s kingdom is the place—the only place—where His will is perfectly performed. There is no hindrance, no interference, no objection. His will is embraced and trusted. It’s not like earth where so much gets in the way, like us, and even our prayers.

Do you sometimes sound like me?

“Lord, here is my loved one and this is the dilemma. Would you please…?” Even when I don’t verbalize my wishes, I have them, both acknowledged and in my subconscious. I am not short on suggestions for ways God could fix this—but my proposals are inferior to His ways.

Are my prayers limiting or do they release answers that are above what I ask or imagine? A Kingdom of God mentality will align my prayers with God’s will.

“Lord, I want your kingdom to rise in this situation—for righteousness to reign and sin to flee. Father, shine your light on this mess and let your glory glow. I want your will to be done, even if I don’t understand it, like it or agree with it.

And as I pray, Lord, may your kingdom reign in my heart without resistance. Spirit, keep this truth before me: your ways and thoughts are always higher than mine and everything you do is initiated by astounding love and fathomless faithfulness.

Your kingdom come, your will be done on earth—in this situation—as it is in heaven. Amen.”

Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory … for ever and ever! Amen. Eph 3:20-21
