WHAT DO YOU THINK
Does anyone really believe that God's will is being done here on earth right now?? With all the pillage, destruction, rioting, debauchery...etc, does anyone believe these things are "God's Will?"
I can say without one single doubt the answer is NO it is not! But there will come a day that God's will shall be done on earth as it is in heaven.
It the passage above, Jesus teaches us to pray for the Coming Kingdom of Christ. It is the Kingdom of God's government; where God rules and reigns.
The purpose of prayer is for God's will to be done. Therefore, effective prayer is finding the will of God and getting in on it. God wants for you what you would want for yourself!
But, right now it's as if man has enshrined himself and dethroned God's will for their own will, and not just their will... but their demands!
THREE PRINCIPLES TO KNOW GOD'S WILL
1. SURRENDER: Surrender is more than simply committing to
the Lord; it is renouncing control. We'll never know God's
will until we are willing to say, "Thy will be done."
For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole
world, and lose his own soul? Or what shall a man
gain in exchange for his soul?
2. SCRIPTURE: The Word of God contains the Will of God.
His Word is His revelation to each of us.
If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall
ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.
3. SPIRIT: The Holy Spirit helps us understand the
Word of God and articulate our prayers.
Likewise the Spirit also helps our infirmities: for we know
not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit
itself makes intercession for us with groanings which
cannot be uttered.
When we pray in the Spirit, any prayer that the Holy Spirit lays upon our hearts will be answered. The prayer that originates in heaven certainly is not going to be rejected there. The coming kingdom of Jesus Christ is the Kingdom of God's grace.
Not by works of righteousness that we have done, but according to His mercy, He saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost; which He shed on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Savior; That being justified by His grace, we should be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life. TITUS 3:5-7
It is also a Kingdom of God's goodness. The kingdom of God is righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Ghost. God is so good.
Finally, it is the kingdom of God's glory. God will be glorified here upon this earth. For the earth shall be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord, as waters that cover the sea. HABAKKUK 2:14
GOD'S KINGDOM ON EARTH
His kingdom has not come yet on earth. His will is not being done on earth, but it will be!
Have you surrendered to the will of God? As you and I pray today, consider praying this simple, yet very powerful, declaration: "Thy Kingdom Come - Thy Will Be Done!
