There is so much going on it can be hard to know where to look to understand what God is doing. We are living in the greatest transition we as a generation has ever known. Multiple voices are vying for our attention and with so many conflicting sounds it can be hard to discern what the truth is. When everything around is swirling because the storm is upon us, the best place to nuzzle your nose and fix your eyes is in the word of God.
The Bible is beneficial on multiple levels. One it brings clarity to the chaos. Two it brings peace in the midst of the storm. Three it offers the opportunity to rest while others are running to and fro. And four it builds you inside strong. Solomon declares the NAME of the Lord is a strong tower and the righteous run into it (Proverbs 18:10).
As we prepare for these final days of this ever so unusual year, be ready for we are going to see two things happening simultaneously. One we will see wickedness come to an end and at the same time we will see righteousness established. Everything we are going to see and hear will be one of these two things happening. The Lord Himself has declared this ending and establishing, therefore all we can say is thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.
When the transition wanes, the storm passes and the dust settles we are going to see the entry of the manifestation of the kingdom on earth as it is in heaven. I see it arising out of people; I see the soil of men’s hearts stirring; I see the veil of flesh giving way to this kingdom; I see it manifesting not here and there but everywhere. We are going to see things we’ve only read about and we are going to participate in things we’ve only watched in the past. We were born to manifest the kingdom on earth and it is going to be awe inspiring and irresistible for both believers and unbelievers.
Psalm 7:9 “O let the evil of the wicked come to an end, but establish the righteous.
Matthew 6:9-10 “This, then, is how you should pray: Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name, your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.”
