The Creator's Creator

"Thy kingdom come..." (from the Lord's Prayer, Matthew 6:10) 
    Man, being a manifestation or expression of God, has a limitless destiny before him. His work is to express, in definite, concrete form, the ideas that God furnishes him, and in order to do this, he must have creative power. Elsewise, he would merely be a machine through which God worked - an automaton. But man, having the nature of his Father, remains a creator. Notice that the word individual means "undivided." The consciousness of man is not separated from God's consciousness.
     "Thy kingdom come" means that it is our duty to bring more and more of God's ideas into concrete manifestation upon this plane. That is what we are here for. The old saying, "God has a plan for every man, and he has one for you," is quite correct.
     If only you can find out the thing God intends you do do, and will do it, you will find that all doors will open to you, and you will be gloriously happy. There is a true place in life for each one of us where we can bring the Kingdom of God into manifestation, and truly say, "Thy Kingdom cometh."
