Prayer is the life-substance of God’s people. We learn to pray, gaining momentum that cultivates an awareness of God’s Kingdom and the invisible forces that influence our lives. Jesus spoke about this invisible kingdom during His interrogation by Pilate, declaring that it was “His kingdom”, that it was “not of this world”, and that it will be made manifest in this world at an appointed time. The gravity of Jesus’ declaration about His Kingdom and Kingship should not be missed – it signed His death warrant. We have the same choice today - we can respond to the popular crowd in a way that brings sure approval or we can acknowledge the truth we know about Jesus, even when it increases life’s tensions. God’s Kingdom may be invisible, but it has very visible impact upon our lives when we choose God’s truth. Jesus explained that the Kingdom of God is within us when we are “born again” – reborn of God’s Spirit. Subsequently, awareness of and participation in that kingdom brings great liberty and results in a life directed by the Spirit of God with character transformation of spiritual fruits: “love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.” Pastor Allen concludes by considering outcomes of this invisible kingdom in our lives as God works through people who have recognized His Kingdom. A God-directed, God-purposed life requires Kingdom awareness - take time to pray.
