For Thine is The Kingdom



Think about the natural order. It's what we see established in Genesis 1 and following. Take note that the natural order was set up supernaturally. The natural order existed as a thought in the mind of God before He spoke it into being. Even with the apparent dynamic, yet seemingly random nature of all that we see, it continues to operate within the parameters of God's initial idea. At the end of it all, Christ will be presented with His Bride, God's habitation will again be with men and the eternal state will be just as He planned it. Why? Because it's His.

The total sum of human existence is not predicated on some cosmic arm-wrestling match between good and evil. There's no real reason to say 'Love wins', it's victory was never in question. Satan is called the ruler of this world and most times that statement is made in regards to how formidable he is; how much power and influence he's been given. In the scope of things, Satan is indeed way more powerful than any of us as individuals. However, God rules as sovereign. No one can appoint Him. No one can give Him power or influence. You have the choice to submit to His intrinsic authority or not

Here’s The Word:

Genesis 1:1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.

Deuteronomy 10:14 Behold, the heaven and the heaven of heavens is the Lord's thy God, the earth also, with all that therein is.

Daniel 4:17 This matter is by the decree of the watchers, and the demand by the word of the holy ones: to the intent that the living may know that the most High ruleth in the kingdom of men, and giveth it to whomsoever he will, and setteth up over it the basest of men.

Psalm 22:28 For the kingdom is the Lord's: and he is the governor among the nations.

Psalm 24:1 The earth is the Lord's, and the fulness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein.

Psalm 47:2 For the Lord most high is terrible; he is a great King over all the earth.

Psalm 57:2 I will cry unto God most high; unto God that performeth all things for me.

Psalm 83:18 That men may know that thou, whose name alone is Jehovah, art the most high over all the earth.

Psalm 100:3 Know ye that the Lord he is God: it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.

Psalm 118:24 This is the day which the Lord hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.

Proverbs 16:4 The Lord hath made all things for himself: yea, even the wicked for the day of evil.

2 Corinthians 3:5 Not that we are sufficient of ourselves to think any thing as of ourselves; but our sufficiency is of God;

As we begin to wrap up the Disciples’ Prayer, we reflect on the petition we’ve just made to God; that He provide for us and forgive us, that He lead us and deliver us from evil. How is it that we can ask and expect God to perform these things? Simply due to the fact that no one else can. This is ALL God’s show. No one else can truthfully claim to be able to perform anything whatsoever. We hear of the self-made man: There’s no such thing. We need to be very careful from where or from whom we seek help. We especially need to mindful of our propensity to seek feelings of pride in ourselves when “we” accomplish things. Although you are responsible for your choices, It’s GOD Who has set up the law of choices and consequences. He enacts or allows the things that happens and withholds things that don’t….for THINE is the kingdom.



In Him,
Cros
