 Thought For Today - June 12
Thy will be done as it is in Heaven!

    Jesus taught us, through his disciples, to pray to God our father, and to say: "thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven."
    When we are born again and become the children of God by God's grace, and our faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, we not only become the children of God, but we also become citizens of Heaven. As citizens of Heaven, we are under the jurisdiction of the king of Heaven. Thus, while we remain on earth, we are , as it were, strangers in a foreign land, subject to, and responsible for keeping the laws of the country of our residence, but as citizens of America, or whatever country we may be citizens of, if we find ourselves in trouble in a foreign country, we have a right to appeal to our home government to assist us in our difficulty.
    So it is with our heavenly citizenship: we are told that we sit together in heavenly places with Christ Jesus. We are citizens of Heaven. When we pray that God's will be done on earth as it is in heaven, we are appealing to our king that all that happens in our lives here on earth would be the same as if we were already at home in Heaven.
    When the will of our king of kings and lord of lords is being accomplished in our lives, then, all that transpires in our lives here on earth is the result of his power and authority. "The kings heart is in the hand of the Lord, as the rivers of waters he turneth it wither so ever he will."
    Would it be God's will for me to be lost forever in Heaven? Would it be God's will for me to be discouraged if I were in Heaven? Would it be God's will for me to be unhappy if I were already in Heaven? Would it be God's will for me to be sick and poverty stricken if I were in Heaven? I don't know the final answer to all these questions; but I tend to think the answer would be no to all of them. Heaven is a happy, healthy, wealthy, eternal place where God is. I believe that none of these situations can coexist in the presence of God, therefore, If God's will is done in us on earth as it is, or would be if I were already in Heaven, what is the conclusion of the whole matter? What does God desire, and what is his will for us while here on earth?
