Meeting in the Meadow: The King and His Kingdom in You

The King and His Kingdom in You
-Roy Lessin

For the Kingdom of God is not just fancy talk; it is living by God's power.
1 Corinthians 4:20 (NLT)

The Kingdom of God makes all the difference in you and in your day because you are a part of it. There is no kingdom, rule, or authority that is greater than God’s Kingdom. The Kingdom of God is all about the reign of Jesus Christ in your life. Jesus is the King of the Kingdom, and every benefit of the Kingdom is yours because you have the King ruling your life.

Jesus reigns and rules over everything that He has overcome, over everything He has defeated, and over everything He has conquered. Jesus is the triumphant King, the mighty Warrior, and the risen Lord. He faced the onslaughts of Satan’s attacks and crushed them; He faced the temptations of sin and overcame them; He faced the grip of death and triumphed over it. Today, Jesus is your authority over the kingdom of darkness, He is your deliverer over the power of sin, and He is your victory over the fear of death.

Jesus’ Kingdom within you is unshakeable, indestructible, and impenetrable. Nothing can come against it and prevail; nothing can challenge it and win; nothing can defy it and overcome. The Kingdom of God means that you do not have to live this day in your own strength, but by Jesus’ power; not in your own efforts, but in Jesus’ finished work; not in your own abilities, but in Jesus’ endless resources.

If you are facing temptation today, resist it and let Jesus’ victory be yours.

If the enemy is trying to pull you down and discourage you, let Jesus’ strength lift you up and cause you to stand firm.

If you are facing fear or worry, let Jesus’ be your confidence, your hope, and your security.


If your life is broken, let Jesus make you whole.
