DAY THIRTEEN – “Keys to the Kingdom”

“your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.” Matthew 6:10

Wouldn’t you love to have heaven on earth?
God would, too!
Is that even possible?
If so, why hasn’t it happened already?

That will be the topic for the next several days devotions but first, let me frame the discussion.
You have the power to bring God’s kingdom to earth!
You have power to bring God’s will to earth!
You hold the keys to the kingdom! It is your will!

This portion of the prayer might be clearer if it read:
“your kingdom come (in me)”
“your will be done (in me)”
“on earth (in me) as it is in heaven”

The clearest demonstration of this truth was Jesus, Himself! He taught us about God’s Kingdom and demonstrated in during His earthly ministry.  Jesus showed us how to surrender to God’s will and how hard it is to do that. Even He struggled with it! The closest heaven has ever come to earth since Eden is when Jesus to earth and welcomed heaven into His heart.

You can do the same thing! Or, I should say Jesus can do it through you in the power of the Holy Spirit! You hold the key! It is up to you if you will – with your will.

  1. Did you realize you hold the key to the kingdom?
  2. What is (are) the thing (or things) preventing His kingdom and will from my life?

Heavenly Father, I want your kingdom to come in my life. I surrender the throne of my life to You. I want your will to be done in me and through me. I reach to heaven, so You can come down to earth through me. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
