Your Kingdom Come Your Will Be Done
by Ngozi Nwoke
8/09/2017 / Christian Living
What and how are you praying? The Almighty has a manual for the earth which when followed will lead to righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Spirit. The Lord's Prayer is part of this manual which guides us on how to pray. A part of the prayer, "Your kingdom come. Your will be done", when prayed determines what we experience around us. This post emphasizes on this prayer point.
Your kingdom come. Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven - Matthew 6:10 (NKJV).
For the kingdom of God is not eating and drinking, but righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit - Romans 14:17 (NKJV).
And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffers violence, and the violent take it by force - Matthew 11:12 (NKJV).
The world is in chaos because the kingdom of God is not operational in her. The Lord's kingdom will be operational when the will of the Almighty is done on earth as it is in heaven, and this can be achieved through prayers. Jesus Christ in His model prayer (Matthew 6:10), asked us to pray for God's kingdom to come and that His will be done on earth as it is in heaven. When we pray this prayer continuously, we enforce the will of the Father on earth just as it is in heaven.
God has a way of doing things. For example, the Lord gave Moses the pattern of the tabernacle which he established in Israel, and it was as it is in heaven (Exodus 25:40, Hebrews 8:5). So pray God's ways to be done on earth.
The enemy is attacking with violence to ensure that the kingdom of heaven is not established on earth (Matthew 11:12) but Christ says that the violent will take it by force. If we are violent enough in our faith and prayers, the kingdom of God will be established, and we will have righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Spirit (Romans 14:17).
You may ask me how you can achieve this with the present situation in the world. You are to start with your immediate situation or environment. Establish the kingdom of heaven around you by your violent faith and prayer, praying that the Lord's will be done around you as it is in heaven. Ensure that you don't give up until the Father's will is established. Your heartfelt and persistent prayer has tremendous power and can accomplish much when you put it into action (James 5:16).
Therefore, don't mourn, murmur or complain over situations contrary to Kingdom of God in and around your life. Instead, violently take over the situation by force by praying that God's kingdom come and His will be done over that situation. The faith you need to extend to other territories will be enhanced as you see the results of your prayers around you. So, start today to take charge of your circumstances in prayer and you will be enjoying righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Spirit.
