While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen; for the things which are seen are temporal, but the things which are not seen are eternal. II Corinthians 4:18
Many people want to know what the Kingdom of God looks like. They want to see it in action. I would be one of those people. I have prayed continuously for the Kingdom of God to be manifested. The Bible tells us to focus not upon the kingdoms of this world, but the Kingdom of God. But how can we when we never actually see it, or do we?
Kingdoms or nations have boundaries. Even when countries have firm boundaries, they will influence each other for good or evil. Having said this, the Kingdom of God does not have boundaries. God’s spiritual kingdom exists in the same realm or sphere as our physical world. This is why Jesus taught we are to “be in the world but not of it.” He did not want the physical world dominating a believer’s spiritual world.
In addition, Jesus taught that His Kingdom was “not of this world.” He was asserting that we should be interested first in discovering our spiritual dominion instead of the physical. Jesus said, “Seek first the Kingdom of God“…then all these other physical issues will be added to you. (Matthew 6:33)
When we choose to fix our eyes of God’s Kingdom and discover its value and worth, everything else in the physical world falls into place. The question is have we allowed the Kingdom of God to expand within our own hearts? We will never see the Kingdom of God manifest outside until it has done its work inside our hearts.
