Just over three weeks ago while on a walk, I noticed myself praying for righteousness, peace and joy, the Kingdom of God in the Holy Spirit – AGAIN. Perhaps because God had given me a message to establish His Unshakable Kingdom in our lives – Hebrews 12. Perhaps because He had reminded me in this message, seeking first His Kingdom and praying His Kingdom come His will be done, is a part of every believers calling. Perhaps because a group of women I minister with every week have read the term “Kingdom” 138 times since the beginning of the year, the bulk of which are in Matthew and Luke, 55 and 46 respectively. Perhaps because REVIVAL can only come from the Kingdom of God; when TRUE joy and peace and righteousness in Holy Spirit yields repentance, reconciliation, healing, deliverance, divine order and a life evident of redemption, wholeness, thriving, and freedom – others will take notice, be amazed and ask Jesus into their lives.
The message now known as Beyond: Living Unshakable first pointed to the Promised Land. The thought was to prioritize our lives in such a way we were so nestled into Christ, the Promise, we radiate and reflect Him and His Kingdom to all around. I asked the Lord, "Kingdom or Promise land?"
HIS KINGDOM of righteousness, peace and joy in HOLY SPIRIT WILL do many things, but we will focus on three:
Where are we fixing our gaze? What are we beholding? What is our reality?
There’s a phrase: We become what we behold. Finding the author is a bit elusive. Thankfully there’s Scripture! 2 Corinthians 3:18 ESV And we all, with unveiled face, beholding the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from one degree of glory to another. For this comes from the Lord who is the Spirit. When we DAILY fix our gaze on the Lord and His glory and HIS KINGDOM in His presence, we will be transformed to reflect His glory, love, righteousness, peace and joy!
Have a listen to receive the fullness of revelation from the Lord.
