January 25: KINGDOM, COME!

 

Your Kingdom come.

Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.  (Matthew 6:10)

 

Therefore, since we ARE RECEIVING a Kingdom which cannot be shaken,

let us have grace….  (Hebrews 12:28)

 

1.       Today I will live in the now!  I will live in the now because I am a part of His Kingdom, and His Kingdom is coming now!  The King is reigning in my life now.  His government is increasing now.  The kingdoms of this world are becoming the Kingdoms of our God and of His Christ, now.

 

2.       Today I am not encumbered with the pointless rules and regulations of religion, because the Kingdom of God is not meat or drink, but it is righteousness, peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost.  I will interpret my day be these three things and will make seeking them my first priority.

 

3.       Today is a day to demonstrate righteousness.  He who knew no sin became sin for me that I might become the righteousness of God in Christ, and it is from this righteousness consciousness that my self-esteem and confidence flow today.  By this I am able to show that He has made me the head and not the tail.

 

4.       Today is a day to walk in peace—not as the world gives—but as Jesus Himself shares His supernatural peace with me.  I let not my heart be troubled because I have the peace that passes understanding.  I will not be agitated, frustrated or anxious today, because of my Kingdom right to walk in Kingdom peace.

 

5.       Today is a day to celebrate joy in the Holy Ghost.  I will not be sad or depressed today because His joy is in me and, therefore, my joy is full!  The Kingdom joy working in me will be my strength and will give me the winner’s edge.

 

6.       Today I will seek the Kingdom first in every situation.  Before I have a chance to think about it in the natural…before I analyze it or react emotionally…I will look for the Kingdom before  I do anything else about anything at all.  He is reigning in and through me today, and every name that is named must bow to His Name!

 

7.       Today I live a life that shows the world that I am a royal subject of the ultimate Kingdom and, therefore, I cannot fail or lose or be defeated.  Jesus the King shall reign forever and ever, and He is my Lord, my personal friend, my elder brother.  Today I say, “Long live the King!” and today I will live in the now!

 

Your Kingdom come, Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven – today.

In Jesus’ name, amen.
