Morning by Morning, February 17 - Kingdom Global Initiative
Good morning, Lord Jesus. Speak, Lord, I pray. I am listening.  ...
"For the earth will be full of the knowledge of the Lord as the waters cover the sea" (Isaiah 11:9).
There is a day to come when You will set all things right (Isaiah 11:1-9). There is day to come for the "universal restoration that God announced long ago through His holy prophets" (Acts 3:21). This will be "the times of restoration of all things" -- "the times of refreshing (that) come from the presence of the Lord" when the Father sends the Son to return in victory and glory (Acts 3:19-21 NKJV). The glory of the presence of God will fill the earth (Habakkuk 2:14). Your kingdom will come and Your will will be done, on earth as it is in heaven (Matthew 6:10).
And between this day and that day, our part is to pray for Your glory to come in the earth and in our hearts (Colossian 1:27). We are Your forerunners, Your messengers, Your ambassadors -- "We are ambassadors for Christ, since God is making His appeal through us" (2 Corinthians 5:20). You have entrusted this "message of reconciliation" between God and man to us to live and to share (2 Corinthians 5:19).
Your heart is to "bring salvation to the ends of the earth" (Acts 13:47). "This good news of the kingdom will proclaimed through the world, as a testimony to all nations; and then the end will come" (Matthew 24:14). This is Your Kingdom Global Initiative -- initiated by You to be fulfilled by You through us, as we allow the glory of Your presence to fill our hearts and flow through our lives to change our world (Matthew 5:14).
By the power of Your grace flowing through us, we will do our part in our generation to fulfill Your prophetic command:  "Arise, shine; for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord has risen upon you. For darkness shall cover the earth, and thick darkness the peoples; but the Lord will arise upon you, and His glory will appear over you. Nations shall come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your dawn.... Then you shall see and be radiant; your heart shall thrill and rejoice.... and I will glorify My glorious house.... Violence shall not more be heard in your land, devastation or destruction within your borders; you shall call your walls Salvation, and your gates Praise.... the Lord will be your everlasting light, and your God will be your glory.... I am the Lord; in its time I will accomplish it quickly" (Isaiah 60:1-22).
We say, Come, Lord Jesus. "The Spirit and the bride say, 'Come!'" (Revelation 22:17) Come in our hearts and come in our world, until all the earth is filled with Your glory. By the power of Your grace, empower us to fulfill Your Kingdom Global Initiative. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
Be encouraged today! In the Love of Jesus, Tommy Hays

I pray your heart will be filled with the glory of the Lord in the fullness of His manifest presence, shining through you with the light of His glory, to be His ambassador and fulfill your destiny in His Kingdom Global Initiative, in Jesus' name. Please pray the same for me. God bless you, my friend!
