Text: Exodus 10:21-23
“Your kingdom come. Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.” Matthew 6:10
Can you imagine being in a small country where all cities and towns were shutdown by gross darkness and yet a street stood out with great light! The kingdom of God can exist within a world where gross darkness pervades.
The kingdom of God is far more than a reference to heaven but about power, authority, value and dominion (Matt 12:28). It’s the reign of God in a person, a family or a people. “Your kingdom come. Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.”
(Matt 6:10). It is a life or lives where Jesus is enthroned and rules. Jesus said, “..the kingdom of God is within you.” (Luke 17:21). The devil doesn’t rule in God’s kingdom nor does he have authority over the life or lives that host it, except out of ignorance. The devil loses its authority in a life and among people where kingdom values are enshrined but flourishes in the contrary environment (Rom 14:17; Jam 3:16).
The point is this. It’s true that satan is the god of this world and the world is his kingdom but the kingdom of God can be established in your own domain, like Goshen within Egypt through faith in Christ. In this kingdom, Jesus rules and satan has no authority. In this kingdom, satan and his fallen angels are strangers and you have authority to stop them from trespassing into your territory. Glory!
1. Father, let Your kingdom come in my life, family and domain in Jesus name.
2. Satan, I forbid you from trespassing into my territory in Jesus name.
1. Satan is a stranger in a life, family or place where Jesus rules and must be cast out.
2. God’s kingdom is in power, authority, value and dominion.
