November 12 Prayer
“Jesus was once asked by the Jewish religious leaders, “When will God’s kingdom realm come?” Jesus responded, “God’s kingdom realm does not come simply by obeying principles or by waiting for signs. The kingdom is not discovered in one place or another, for God’s kingdom realm is already expanding within some of you.” Luke 17:20-21 TPT
There is a kingdom realm that is beyond this world of fear and darkness. It is the very presence of Jesus who not only declared that the kingdom had come but lived it out for us to receive.
Now we have this presence within us.
If the kingdom of God is like yeast in dough how does it want to expand in me to affect the world?
What am I putting into my mind and soul that draws me closer to the presence of his kingdom within me?
We can all become addicted to something.
Some of us may be news junkies, food junkies, social junkies....fill in the blank.
What do I want flowing in my veins?
Only Jesus blood that never fails me, for he br his presence of redemption.
I want to be a Jesus junkie with Christ’s love flowing in my veins, his mercy and kingdom reign in me.
Pause and imagine all that Jesus desires for you freely given to replace the things you are holding on to instead of him.
‘Sweet Jesus, we receive your kingdom realm to come and rule in us today.
May your love flow through us as easily as running water from a faucet.
We will look for your kingdom here now among us and expanding in us.
We confess our need for control and fears can overtake us and keep us from living fully in your kingdom realm.
We make space now for the expansion that you desire to take place in us.
May we not look to the world to meet our needs but allow your presence in us to meet the world’s needs.
You are our king! We worship You in the splendor of the earth giving
You all the glory!
Fill us anew with the fullness of your kingdom realm so we may proclaim,
Our God reigns!
