Alignment with Heaven

Pastor Steve TaylorFasting 2016

Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. —Matthew 6:10 KJV
We have all heard the phrase, “just like heaven on earth.” When Jesus taught His disciples how to pray in Matthew 6:9 –13, He provided some insight into what “heaven on earth” might look like. In reality, heaven is a place where God’s will reigns supreme. If we want to have a taste of heaven on earth, then our prayer should be like Jesus’: “Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done…” The purest motivation for our prayers is that God will be glorified and that His will would reign supreme in our lives, just as it does in heaven.
God and His will need to become what we desire and the things we seek after most.
Delight yourself in the Lord; And He will give you the desires of your heart. – Psalm 37:4
All that God is, and all that God has, is at the disposal of prayer. Prayer can do anything that God can do—R. A. Torrey
Our prayers lay the track down on which God’s power can come. Like a mighty locomotive, His power is irresistible, but it cannot reach us without rails. —Watchman Nee
Bible Reading: Psalm 20
Prayer Focus: Do the desires of your heart line up with the will of God? Ask the Holy Spirit to show you the things in your life that need to be surrendered to Him. As we seek God together, let’s pray as Jesus taught us, “Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done” — Even in my life.
