There is no true and lasting happiness outside God, because He is in His very essence order, peace, joy, love and happiness.

Thy Kingdom come – 1 – Thought for the day

“Thy Kingdom come:” how beautiful and profound are those three words in the Lord’s prayer. Inherently, though some are still unaware of this, those three words of Jesus Christ, which He taught us to say daily, mean that we are asking our beautiful Father to come and live in us as we live in Him. This as wherever there is the Almighty Father there is the Kingdom, because the Father Himself is the Kingdom and provides the kingdom for His faithful children to enjoy. Ergo “Thy Kingdom come” is the coming and reigning of the Divine Will on earth.
