Welcome to Day 4: Is He Lord?
This fourth segment of your 10:10 prayer challenge is about establishing The King in His rightful place on the throne of your heart.
That means you have to move.
The king of self often sits on the throne. So this segment is about giving The King of Kings permission to be THE king of your heart.
It is about giving Him the keys to what He purchased again.
The king of “i” needs to die so that The King of Kings can truly reign as Lord.
Giving Him permission over all
As you establish and declare out loud that Christ is the King of your heart, His rule and reign and kingdom will be established in your life… because you will no longer be the one calling the shots.
It may be something new to you to focus on one seemingly small detail for 10 minutes. However, we are amidst a generation that has mastered the establishment of our own agendas, our own kingdoms, and our own destiny. What we feel has become the rule of law. To not follow your feelings has been called ‘not being true.’ In fact, our democratic system makes it difficult to even fathom what it means to follow a king with ultimate authority and sovereignty.
Think about that in your prayer set today: what does it mean to follow a King who is sovereign? Eternally sovereign. Someone who was not elected by popular vote or who campaigned and won due to their charisma and lobby dollars! But a king. Someone whose right to the throne is based on their family line. His eternal governing right was established before time began – and He desires to be the King of your heart!
As you meditate on His Lordship, your perception of your rights will not be what controls your own desires. You won’t have the master keys anymore. There is a great old song that says “May your kingdom be established in our praises / As your people declare your worth / Blessed be The Lord God Almighty…”
Commit one of these verse to your journal and your memory:
1 Timothy 6:15
…He will bring about at the proper time–He who is the blessed and only Sovereign, the King of kings and Lord of lords.
… Jesus Christ, the faithful witness, the firstborn of the dead, and the ruler of the kings of the earth To Him who loves us and released us from our sins by His blood–
“These will wage war against the Lamb, and the Lamb will overcome them, because He is Lord of lords and King of kings, and those who are with Him are the called and chosen and faithful.”
And on His robe and on His thigh He has a name written, “KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.”
And I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse, and He who sat on it is called Faithful and True, and in righteousness He judges and wages war. His eyes are a flame of fire, and on His head are many diadems; and He has a name written on Him which no one knows except Himself. He is clothed with a robe dipped in blood, and His name is called The Word of God.
“For the LORD your God is the God of gods and the Lord of lords, the great, the mighty, and the awesome God who does not show partiality nor take a bribe.
Give thanks to the Lord of lords, For His lovingkindness is everlasting.
When you get to this 10-minute prayer set, continue to lift Him up as the King of Kings and trust that as you fix your eyes on Jesus, your heart will be drawn to greater submission to the King of Kings.
The most dangerous prayer you can pray (in my opinion) is “Lord, I give you full permission to do whatever it takes for you to have all that you paid for!”
- B – be still
