… and only faith can make the withdrawals...
“It is the glory of God to conceal a matter, but the glory of kings to search out a matter” (Prov. 25:2). Some things are only discovered by the desperate. That highly valued Kingdom attitude (see Matt. 5:6) is what marks the heart of true Kingdom Royalty [“and from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, the firstborn from the dead, and the ruler of the kings of the earth” (Rev 1:5).] The God who put the gold in the rocks brought His Kingdom with Him, but left it unseen.
Paul dealt with this in the letter to the Colossians. There he informs us that God hid our abundant life in Christ. [“For you died, and your life is now hidden with Christ in God’ (Col. 3:3).] Where is He? Seated at the right hand of the Father, in heavenly places. (See Ephesians 1:20.) Our abundant life is hidden in the Kingdom realm. And only faith can make the withdrawals.
Look at the word Kingdom - King/dom. It refers to the King’s Domain, implying authority and lordship. Jesus came to offer the benefits of His world to all who surrender to His rule. The realm of God’s dominion, that realm of all sufficiency, is the realm called the kingdom. The benefits of His rule were illustrated through His works of forgiveness, deliverance, and healing.
The Christian life has been harnessed to this goal, verbalized in the Lord’s Model Prayer: Your kingdom come. Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven” (Matt. 6:10).
His dominion is realized when what happens here is as it is in heaven.
