Thy Kingdom Come

Thy Kingdom Come

Jesus taught the disciples how to pray to the Lord. Jesus' method of or form of praying that He taught the disciples is simple, but it requires a deep understanding to unravel what the words are.

Easy-to-Read Version Matthew 6:9-10 So this is how you should pray: ‘Our Father in heaven, we pray that your name will always be kept holy. We pray that your kingdom will come— that what you want will be done here on earth, the same as in heaven.

This prayer is for God's rulership to take over your day. God is a king, and every king wields power in his domain.

We know God sits high above, and even though the earth is His foot stool, you must pray to Him if you want Him to rule your life and world as He rules heaven.

The prayer asks Abba to rule your world for you.

It's one of the prayers that demonstrates complete reliance on God.

When God has control over your life, He does whatever He wants. He takes care of you and so on.

So when God's kingdom comes into your life, these are the benefits you are going to gain; 

Matthew 6:11-15 Give us the food we need for today. Forgive our sins, just as we have forgiven those who did wrong to us. Don’t let us be tempted, but save us from the Evil One.’ Yes, if you forgive others for the wrongs they do to you, then your Father in heaven will also forgive your wrongs. But if you don’t forgive others, then your Father in heaven will not forgive the wrongs you do.

1. God provides for you food. 

When you rely on God, He becomes both your shepherd and your king. Every king is responsible for his subjects' lives. They exist as kings not only because of their position, but also because of their native people and national affairs. "The Lord is my shepherd, and I shall not want," David said.

He will undoubtedly provide for you because you have placed yourself under His authority.

So He will give it to you if you ask.

Easy-to-Read Version Matthew 7:7 “Continue to ask, and God will give to you. Continue to search, and you will find. Continue to knock, and the door will open for you.

As you ask daily as Jesus taught the disciples so it shall be provided unto you by the Lord.

2. God's will will be done in your life. 

If you want God's will for your life to be fulfilled, you must allow God to guide you on a daily basis to do what He wills rather than what you always will.

Our will as nations results in destruction, while our will as individuals results in death.

Today, nations are fighting each other for power, money, rankings, fame, authority, and so on. This is all because our hearts are full of evil and our paths do not lead to peace. According to the Bible, "God's will is life."

Proverbs 14:12 There is a way that people think is right, but it leads only to death.

Most of the time, we believe that what we choose gives us perfect life and peace, but it is God's will for us to be in unity and love.

3. God will protect us. 

When God rules over your life, day, or world, He will protect you in the same way that the mountains encircle Zion.

Simply submit your will to Him, allow Him to take over your moment, and He will protect you forever.

We don't know how to protect ourselves from the devil's schemes because they are spiritual; it is God who protects and delivers us from all forms of evil.

Just allow His presence to brood over you and you shall experience the good things it brings.

Easy-to-Read Version Psalm 91:1-14 You can go to God Most High to hide. You can go to God All-Powerful for protection. I say to the Lord, “You are my place of safety, my fortress. My God, I trust in you.” God will save you from hidden dangers and from deadly diseases. You can go to him for protection. He will cover you like a bird spreading its wings over its babies. You can trust him to surround and protect you like a shield. You will have nothing to fear at night and no need to be afraid of enemy arrows during the day. You will have no fear of diseases that come in the dark or terrible suffering that comes at noon. A thousand people may fall dead at your side or ten thousand right beside you, but nothing bad will happen to you! All you will have to do is watch, and you will see that the wicked are punished. You trust in the Lord for protection. You have made God Most High your place of safety. So nothing bad will happen to you. No diseases will come near your home. He will command his angels to protect you wherever you go. Their hands will catch you so that you will not hit your foot on a rock. You will have power to trample on lions and poisonous snakes. The Lord says, “If someone trusts me, I will save them. I will protect my followers who call to me for help.

Today, as we celebrate our 66th Independence Day or anniversary, let us submit our will to the Lord, and He will direct us, provide for us, rule perfectly over us, and deliver us from all kinds of wicked people who plot against our nation or individuals in secret.

Ask God to protect you, ask God to rule over Ghana, ask God to make His will for the country be activated, He shall let His own will be done for our will is full of selfish ambitions, full of propaganda because of power and authority, full of murders because of money and fame, full of anxiety because we don't see what we expected.

We may be disappointed in most of the governments that have governed our country, but when God fully takes over, we will see significant changes.

In Jesus' name, I pray that we will recognize that God is the only one who can take care of us, and that we will be humble under God's authority.

Thank you, Father, for teaching us today how to walk in your presence, how to accept and submit to your will. Thank you for demonstrating the benefits that will accrue as we continue to abide in you and you in us; may your name be praised forever and ever, Amen.
