I realized something new — new to me, anyway — when I was praying the Lord’s Prayer this morning. The Lord keeps teaching me about the final line:
For Thine is the kingdom, and the power
And the glory forever. Amen.
This line used to be the line I rushed through to conclude the prayer so I could move on to my day, LOL. But this morning, I realized that everything I had just discussed with the Lord, from “Our Father” on, everything that I had thanked Him for, and laid at His feet for His intervention, was wrapped up in the “For Thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory forever” conclusion.
The Lord has the authority to effect whatever it is that we have just prayed to Him about that morning, for His is the kingdom — He is the supreme sovereign over all. And the Lord has the power to effect whatever it is that we have just prayed to Him about that morning, for His is the power. And then when the result of the answered prayer is visible to all, brought about by the Lord’s authority and power, He will receive the glory for it, forever. Amen, indeed.
