May 10, 2017 – Heaven’s Kingdom

Daily Challenges

When we think of kingdoms; we think of territories, countries and places ruled by a king or queen.

When we look to the sky; we see clouds and vast colors of blue, but no kingdom.

When we think of heaven, it’s not always easy to relate to it as a kingdom.

And then there’s that thing about God’s will….

It can sometimes be very difficult to accept God’s will for ourself over our own will for what we want and desire.

What Else Can We Do?

It isn’t until we have a deep and meaningful relationship with God,
that we begin to see just how big God is.

There isn’t anything He can’t do. Nothing and no-one is beyond His reach.

Sometimes we need to look outside of our four walls to see the fullness of God.

And when were close to God, then Heaven’s Kingdom can reside within us.

Knowing Gods will and submitting to it, means that we must relinquish our own wants and desires. In doing so, when we’re within the perfect will of God, He still remembers what’s important to us.

The Bible Says

Matthew 6:10
Your kingdom come.
Your will be done on earth as it is heaven.

Acts 7:49-50
“Heaven is My throne, and earth is My footstool. What house will you build for Me? Says the Lord, or what is the place of My rest? Has My hand not made all these things?”

Colossians 1:9
For this reason we also, since the day we heard it, do not cease to pray for you, and to ask that you may be filled with the knowledge of His will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding.

Matthew 16:25
For whoever desires to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake will find it.
