THOUGHTS ABOUT A UNIQUE KINGDOM
The other day as I sat on the patio of my mother’s house looking at the beautiful cloudless blue sky (we in the Bahamas are so blessed!), I thought about how unique the Kingdom of God is and how privileged we are as Believers in Jesus Christ to be a part of it.
The Kingdom of God is such an awesome kingdom to be a part of.
It is an eternal kingdom, a kingdom without end, a kingdom that was and is and ever shall be. It is kingdom that perpetually stands forever; it will never be defeated, destroyed or overthrown.
It is a kingdom whose King, God, is ruler of the universe.
Psalm 47:2 tells us that He is the lord Most High, the great King over all the earth. Psalm 103:19 tells us that He has established His throne in heaven and His kingdom rules over all.
Unlike in other kingdoms, in the Kingdom of God, our King is always available to each citizen at all times.
As a matter of fact He personally promised each citizen that He would never leave them nor forsake them and said He is with them always, even to the end of the age.
In the Kingdom of God, it is not necessary to travel to see our King, nor is it necessary to make an appointment to get an audience with him. He is always there for His citizens every minute of each day, 24 hours a day, 365 days of the year. All we need to do is to call upon Him in prayer.
The Kingdom of God is an awesome kingdom to be a part of because unlike in other kingdoms, our King has a personal relationship with each member/citizen of the kingdom.
As a matter of fact the relationship is so personal that He knew each citizen before they were born and actually helped to form them and to knit them together while they were in their mothers’ wombs.
It is so personal that He receives each new citizen of the Kingdom as His own child, so they become children of the King. This is because the Kingdom of God is not just about government and rulership according to God’s ways, purposes and plans, but it is also about a diverse family with an incredibly loving Father.
In the Kingdom of God, not only does our King, have a personal relationship with each citizen/child, but he also knows and is interested in everything about each one of them.
He knows and is interested in all their needs, desires, concerns, dreams, strengths, weaknesses, and even details such as the numbers of the hairs on each one of their heads. He communicates intimately with each one of His citizens/children about their lives in order to help them be all that He designed them to be and have all that He purposed for them to have as citizens of His Kingdom.
In addition to this, He also personally makes provision to fill each of them with His Holy Spirit so that they can have His power readily available to help them in every aspect of their lives.
What a King! What a Kingdom!
Do you know of any other King or kingdom like this?
As Believers in Jesus Christ, we are privileged and blessed to be a part of the Kingdom of God and to have God, the creator and chief executive officer of the universe as our Father and King.
These are just some thoughts I decided to share with you today; there is so, so much more to know and understand about this unique Kingdom that we are a part of and it’s King.
I hope reading this post has in some way helped you to appreciate who you are, whose you are and what you have access to as a Believer in Jesus Christ and Kingdom citizen.
