Jesus told us in Matthew, chapter six, verse 10 that we should pray to this end: “Your kingdom come, Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.”
God’s kingdom and His will are one in the same. The kingdom of God is the place in which we find the dominion of the King. His will operates in the same circumstance: in the place where we find the King’s dominion. The Lord mentioned this twice in His teaching in Matthew, not being redundant but to emphasize it’s importance.
Why would Jesus tell us to pray in this manner?
Because this is a problem solving prayer! Things begin to get out of order where the dominion of the King is absent. Due to our being made in the image of God, we also possess His free will. We can choose to live under His dominion or under the dominion of the world, the flesh, and the devil. That’s why we must make a conscious choice to place ourselves under His dominion, which is the place where His will is done.
What does kingdom dominion look like in reality?
Where you find the dominion of the King, you will find the operation of purity, provision, prayer, power, as well as all other aspects of the kingdom operating just as they operate in heaven. There are opposing forces to the will of God and the kingdom of God in this realm where we live. But, the primary opposition to the kingdom of God comes from God’s own people. We fail to recognize that there is a perfect timing for God’s manifestations. Every prayer prayed to release the dominion of the kingdom is answered!
Did you get that? Every prayer prayed for the dominion of the kingdom is answered! Delays are not “No’s”!
Think of Revelation, chapter six, verse nine. We see the fifth seal being opened by Jesus and the souls that have been martyred are revealed to John. These martyrs cried out, “How long, O Lord, holy and true, until You judge and avenge our blood on those who dwell on the earth? Then a white robe was given to each of them; and it was said to them that they should rest a little longer, until both the number of their fellow servants and their brethren who would be killed as they were, was completed.”
The martyrs were praying for the dominion of the King. They were praying the will of God. But, there was a specific time for this to be fulfilled. The kingdom answer called for “divine delay”. But, during this delay, much was happening. The kingdom prayer will be answered and will be perfect in God’s will and timing!
Praying for the dominion of the King also means that we are declaring that everything that is forbidden in the kingdom of God will also be forbidden to operate in our lives. Therefore, the prayer for the will and dominion of the King is a “warfare” prayer.
If we were in heaven, we wouldn’t have to pray this prayer because the kingdom of God has no adversaries, but here it does. Satan cannot stop the manifestation of the kingdom of God but we can. If we cease to pray in the face of “divine delay”, we will not see the will of God in it’s fullest measure. God’s will and His timing must kiss one another for everything to be manifest as it is in heaven.
Don’t stop believing! Don’t stop praying! Your prayer is bringing the dominion of the King and His will into your life! Nothing can stop it except your lack of trust and faith! Timing is very important! Don’t get thrown off by timing! While you wait, you are right in the center of the dominion of the King even if what you’ve prayed for has not completely manifest yet.
Pray today for Jesus’ dominion in your life. Believe today for His will to be manifest. Your prayer is warring against the manifestation of things that are outlawed in heaven! There is no way your prayer will not be answered because it is a prayer according to the will of God. Satan can’t stop it and neither can governments or authorities. The only thing that can stop it from coming is you!
Kingdom realities are happening all around you right now! As long as you keep praying and submitting, they will keep manifesting!
Don’t close off the channel to transformation! You are right in the middle of the will of God! Declare it into existence: “Your kingdom come, Your will be done in my life, in my world, in my family, in my attitude, in my heart, just as it is in heaven! Everything that is outlawed in heaven is outlawed in my life and will not, it cannot operate! Thank you, Jesus for the manifestation of your kingdom!”
