“May Your kingdom come. May Your will be done here on earth, just as it is in heaven.” Matthew 6:10
When the disciples asked Jesus to teach them to pray the first thing He did was acknowledge that God was our Father in heaven and that He was holy. Clearly the Father in heaven was and is to be honored first and foremost, but then the next words from Jesus in His prayer tutelage places God’s kingdom and will as life’s highest priority and purpose for us on this earth.
God created humanity and its way for redemption when it foolishly strayed into the dragon’s lair. With God’s conditions now resolved by the provision of Christ and the supernatural enablement of the Holy Spirit, we become a part of the unfolding success plan of His Kingdom and will.
He paid our impossible and incalculable debt of sin. He gives us abundant life and invites us to honor Him with the privilege of serving His glorious unfailing plan for the earth.
For the believer in Christ, loving God and doing His will is the highest call and greatest honor in this earth life.
You have given me life. You have filled my heart with joy and purpose. Continue to show me the way of Your Kingdom that I might daily pray with wisdom and insight. Reveal to me the details of Your unfolding will in this hour as well as those that follow. To Your name be glory. Amen.
