Present & Pleased Devotional DAY SEVEN

Kingdom Fall is a call to surrender. It’s a call for us to lay down our selfish pursuits. It’s a call to reignite a once brightly burning passion for the Lord. It’s a call to magnify God’s Kingdom instead of our own.

CHORUS: Tear down the walls that have stood for too long / Take all our pride and our shame that has stolen our song / With desperate hands lifted high we surrender our all / Let our kingdom fall and Yours be seen

Do we really want our walls to come down? Are we ready to lay down our pride and admit the shame that has dimmed our once burning bright passion? How desperate are we really? Desperate enough to lift our hands to our Father surrendering all that we have, and all that we are to Him? Are we truly ready for our kingdom to fall so His can be seen?

I hope so. I pray so.

It’s time we as a Church take seriously Romans 12:2, “Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.”

It’s time to desire John 3:30, “He must increase, but I must decrease.”

Would you join me in praying this prayer today?

Our Father in heaven,
May Your name be kept holy.
May Your Kingdom come soon.
May Your will be done on earth, as it is in heaven.
Give us today the food we need, and forgive us our sins,
As we have forgiven those who sin against us.
And don’t let us yield to temptation,
But rescue us from the evil one,
Father may our kingdoms fall and Yours be seen.
Amen.
