The Tension Between God’s Kingdom And Your Own

March 29, 2017

“Praying the PAPA prayer has helped me feel less powerful. I sense deeper brokenness when I realize how strongly I don’t want God’s kingdom to come if it interferes with the arrival of my kingdom. That becomes clear when I look at the motives that direct how I sometimes relate to people I love. And then I realize that my weakness and brokenness are God’s opportunity to release His life more fully through me.”

Dr. Larry Crabb, The PAPA Prayer, Page 50

Questions for Reflection:
• In what areas of your life are feeling the tension between God’s kingdom and your own?
• Take some time to offer your weakness and brokenness to God, asking for His life to be released more fully through those areas of struggle.
