There will be no end to the increase of His government or of peace, On the throne of David and over his kingdom, To establish it and to uphold it with justice and righteousness From then on and forevermore. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will accomplish this. (Isaiah 9:7)
The LORD shall reign forever and ever. (Exodus 15:18)
The LORD will reign forever, Thy God, O Zion, to all generations. Praise the LORD! (Psalm 146:10)
I will make the lame a remnant, And the outcasts a strong nation, And the LORD will reign over them in Mount Zion From now on and forever. (Micah 4:7)
and He will reign over the house of Jacob forever; and His kingdom will have no end.” (Luke 1:33)
And the seventh angel sounded; and there arose loud voices in heaven, saying, “The kingdom of the world has become the kingdom of our Lord, and of His Christ; and He will reign forever and ever.” (Revelation 11:15 and Handel’s Messiah)
And there shall no longer be any night; and they shall not have need of the light of a lamp nor the light of the sun, because the Lord God shall illumine them; and they shall reign forever and ever. Revelation 22:5)
For Thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever.
Christ ends the model prayer much as it began. Taking time again to acknowledge the greatness of the Father. The 3 “Ours” of the prayer (bread, forgiveness and guidance) are sandwiched in a God glorifying context.
Our needs are secondary to the kingdom and glory of our wonderful Father.
It’s Your kingdom we seek – Your reign in our lives, and in those around us, and in our world. We look forward to the day that the kingdoms of this world become the kingdoms of our Lord and of His Christ!
It’s Your power we see. We are not looking to become powerful, but rather to be empowered with Your power. We want to be a conduit of your power. Lord, help me be an outlet where others can plug in and tap the power of the Creator God I serve. [Tweet This]
It’s Your glory we would behold! It is all about the glory of God. When Jesus teaches us this prayer, it is so that you are able to pray a prayer that will bring Glory to God. Jesus tells us in John 15:7 that God is glorified by giving us what we ask for when we are in relationship with Him.
It’s forever!!!! Not only does it last forever but it starts here and now. You don’t have to die before God can begin to work in your life, and get glory for Himself through your life.
Thanks for reading today. Glorify Him in all you do and say today!
