God’s will

Bishop-Elect Dr. Monterey D. Lee, Sr.

“Thy Kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven,” Matthew 6:10.

The phrase “Thy kingdom come” is a reference to God’s spiritual power as reigning King.

When you say He reigns, you’re saying that God is in control of your life.

He reigns means that God rules over all things. He govern all things. He prevails, and He dominates over all things. We are God’s kingdom (His people), and God is our Ruling King or Redeemer. We are in covenant with Him; one with Him; living for Him; and doing His will. It’s not what you want or say, but what He says.

This is covenant. You are covered under God’s assurance. It’s a positive declaration intended to give confidence—a promise.

Insurance is a contract that transfers the risk of financial loss.

Assurance is a positive confidence and promise.

Insurance is a payment after losses.

Assurance is a payment before loss.

Insurance includes a payment of a premium.

Assurance is God’s peace and consolation, knowing that He will keep you in perfect peace when your mind is stayed on Him.

God’s kingdom was announced in a covenant with Abraham. God promised Abraham: “I will make you the father of a great people if you obey Me. I will give you the land of Israel, life to your descendants, and righteousness will be upon you,” Genesis 17.

“I say unto you that many shall come from the east and west, and shall sit down with Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, in the kingdom of heaven,” Matthew 8:11. In God all evil will be destroyed. God will establish the new heaven and the new earth.

“And I [John] saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth was pass away,” Revelation 21:1.

When you pray  “Your will be done,” you are praying that God’s perfect purpose will be accomplished in this world as it is in heaven.

We are asking God to move by His sovereign will, not His ‘permissible will.’

Sovereign will is God’s perfect will. God is the ‘sovereign,’ meaning Lord of all by an incontestable right. As Creator and possessor of heaven and earth, He has absolute right and full authority to do or allow whatever He desires. God is the supreme authority and all things (not some things) but all things are under His control.

“I [God] formed the light and created the darkness; I made well-being the Good. I created calamity and events causing great and often sudden damage, distress and disaster. I am the Lord, who does all these things,” Isaiah 45:7.

“Let the earth open, that salvation and righteousness may bear fruit; let the earth cause them both to sprout [grow] in you. I the Lord have created it,” Isaiah 45:8.

Permissive will: God will permit sin to occur. God allows man to rebel against Him, and in this God permits people to do whatever they want. We must become a people that walk in the righteousness of God and live a life of salvation. You choice to obey or disobey is up to you.

My desire is to do God’s will. May your kingdom come and your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.
