“Thy Kingdom come, thy will be done.” (Matthew 6:10)

This is often said easily, but more difficult to practice.  We say that we want what God has for us, but this task can become extremely difficult when it takes us on a path we don’t want to travel…or requires of us something we just don’t want to do.

As we continue to seek His face, we understand the total inability to save ourselves, and we understand there is no help for us outside of the Lord.  We want His help, we crave His Presence and we desire to be better people…but oh the struggle we have!  I find that even when I would do good, evil is present (Romans 7:21).

Recognizing our total dependence on His grace…our total inability to save ourselves…our lack of ability to live the life, we must submit to the arrival of His Kingdom in our life!  We must submit ourselves much like the drowning person submits to the strength and skill of the rescuer.

When His Kingdom comes and His will is done, it will include sweet fellowship with the Maker of the Universe…it will include the Presence of the Holy Spirit and it will give us the victory.
