Good morning, Loved Ones:
This morning is day three of our seven day journey into the Lord’s Prayer. We will take our time to break down all seven sentences of the New King James Version of Matthew 6:9-13.
Today, we focus on the second sentence of verse 10, “Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.“
In this verse of the prayer, Jesus is speaking on how we should be in agreement and perfect alignment with the will of God. As Christians, we come to know and understand that God’s thoughts are higher and deeper than our thoughts and his ways are higher than our ways. In knowing that, it is our job to adjust ourselves with the sound and vibration of heaven so that we may know what God’s perfect will is, both for our lives individually and also corporately as the body of Christ.
Growing up, on Saturday mornings, I would hear music coming from our garage. My father would be playing music on this really old radio German Radio SABA Freudenstadt. The radio was a special one because it was able to tune into different frequencies from all over the world. Whenever the sound got fuzzy, due to interference, the tuning knob would have to be adjusted so that the sound would be clear. So it is with us tuning into the voice of God and the sound of heaven.
We are asking God for His will to be done on the earth and in our lives, as it has been spoken and decreed in heaven. We are asking God for the ears to hear. Holy Spirit, speak to our heart so that we may hear the sound of heaven and the will of God.
Pray for God’s perfect will to be done in your life. We must know and understand that however God asks us to “shift” that it is necessary. We may not understand, but it is not our job to understand. It is our job to obey. Amen?
New King James Version (NKJV)
9 In this manner, therefore, pray:
Our Father in heaven,
Hallowed be Your name.
10 Your kingdom come.
Your will be done
On earth as it is in heaven.
11 Give us this day our daily bread.
12 And forgive us our debts,
As we forgive our debtors.
13 And do not lead us into temptation,
But deliver us from the evil one.
For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen.
