GOD’S KINGDOM



Matthew 6:10 "Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven."


This aspect of the model prayer or the Lord's Prayer, as we know it, addresses the Kingship of God and His decree.

God is the ultimate Ruler of the universe.  Psalm 47:7  declares, "For God is the King of all the earth." As the Supreme King of the universe, we as His subjects belong to His kingdom. God's kingdom was prepared for us before the foundation of the world. It is God's desire for us to inherit the kingdom.(Matt 25:34). God’s kingdom is twofold-the kingdom of grace and the kingdom of glory. The subjects of the kingdom are those who accept God as King of their lives. The kingdom of grace is being established now.



Daily, as we acknowledge and confess our sins to God; sorrowfully repent of them; and He faithfully forgives us and cleanses us from all unrighteousness (1John 1:9), we become citizens of the kingdom of grace. By God's help and our willingness to live submissive, surrendered lives; as the citizens of the kingdom of grace; we become the citizens of the kingdom of glory, which will be fully established when Jesus comes the second time. 



Our verse of focus concludes with, "Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven."

God is sovereign, and therefore, He has absolute authority in heaven and on earth.   His good pleasure, His will, His decree will done as He commands,  whether in heaven or on earth. When we pray, "Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.", we are acknowledging that God's will is Supreme, and therefore, we  surrender to Him.



There are many things that we desire. As we place our needs before God, we must do so with the understanding that God's answer to our prayers,  is always in accordance with His divine will and not ours. God’s will ultimately supersedes ours. He knows what is best for us. Therefore, He gives us the best. By God's grace, may we exercise the faith and accept God's will for our lives.
