Lord, help is to seek Your Kingdom above all else. A quick reflection over the weekend and we may quickly identify areas where we may have been seeking our kingdom, or what we would have in our lives - rather than Yours. In the way we may have interacted with others, or how we spent our time, or thoughts we may have had during certain situations. When reading this chapter You say to pray "YOUR Kingdom come, YOUR will be done, on earth as it is in heaven".
It can seem nice to think about and we may both intellectually and emotionally agree, "Yes!! We want heaven on earth!!! Yes!" But when it comes to the "YOUR will be done" part, that same intellect and emotion may become the hindrance.
I pray we see Your Kingdom coming is a result of our personal response to You and Your leading. I pray we practice giving, fasting and praying in private, in an effort to grow closer to You, to learn Your will, and live it out. I pray hearts and minds are opened to these truths and You are able to do a deep work this morning and throughout the day. Thank You Jesus, amen.
