Topic: The Kingdom Of God Is Within You [TREM Devotional 16 November 2020]
“And when He was demanded of the Pharisees, when the Kingdom of God should come, he answered them and said, The kingdom of God cometh not with observation. Neither shall they say, lo here! or, lo there! For behold, the Kingdom of God is within you” Luke 17:20-21 KJV
The Kingdom of God does not come by observation. No! It is not by looking. The Kingdom of heaven is within you. The day you made Jesus the Lord over your life; the Kingdom came into you.
How does that benefit you? It simply means that you don’t wait until you get to heaven to manifest His glory because the Kingdom of heaven rules right here on earth. Anywhere you go, because the Kingdom is within you, you are bound to produce.
Since the kingdom is within you, there are no more limits; no more obstacles and no more hindrances. The Spirit world rules, governs and controls this earthly realm. The Bible says in Hebrews 11:3 “…….that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear”. (KJV)
The things that you are seeing today were not made out of the things that you see. What made what we are seeing is in the Spirit. That is the Word of God. His Words are Spirit and Life. So when you receive the Word in your spirit, you are a loaded missile going somewhere to explode. When you receive the word in your spirit, no matter what it sounds, feels and looks like in the natural, it should not bother you because the natural will submit to you.
Paul puts it this way in 2 Corinthians 4:18: “While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal, but the things which are not seen are eternal”. (KJV). Temporal means it is subject to change because what we see will change. The Kingdom is not by observation. It is within you. The eternal creates the natural. When you say I believe, when it does not look like it, you are on your way to creating what you believe.
