Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. (Matthew 6:10)


Jesus walked on this earth with the purpose of bringing eternal life to the lost and training us to reign with Him. The things that He did and said were structured around and pointed back to the kingdom of God. He encouraged us to pray, “Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.” 

Jesus got a handful of people and changed regions one at a time by the power of the Holy Spirit working through them. He is still changing regions one at a time with a handful of people—and He wants to use you! He wants to tap your potential. Perhaps you’ve had bad experiences in the past and now you’re a little shy about stepping out. I’m here to help you conquer that fear.

Expect more from yourself than what you did in the past because your potential is there, waiting to be used. Say this now, “Hey, I am not going to leave this earth with all this potential inside of me. Lord, let your kingdom come in my life here on earth this day, as it is in heaven.”


Father, I believe You have a great purpose and plan for my life. I receive the courage to step out in faith to be all that You’ve called me to be and to do all that You’ve called me to do. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
