31 But rather seek ye the kingdom of God; and all these things shall be added unto you.
32 Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom.
If your father gave you a car.. you could drive it, wash it, work on it, carry people in it.. you would ‘own’ that car or, in other words, you REIGN over that car. You say what goes on inside it, you say how it is used. Any other person in the car would be under your ‘authority’. It is a place of your ‘jurisdiction’.
You would have a title deed to that car.. you would physically have the car.. You don’t own it for a little while, or part time, or even partnership, you own it fully all of the time..
You would also be totally responsible for it… insurance, maintenance, fuel, tires.. oil.. etc.
In 12:32, give you the kingdom.. means give you the REIGN … the seat of authority and power.. and.. through your FAITH.. you have the title deed.
So, what is this kingdom that you are reigning over?
From G935; properly royalty, that is, (abstractly) rule, or (concretely) a realm (literally or figuratively): – kingdom, + reign.

John the Baptist preacched
Mat_3:2 And saying, Repent ye: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.
The first words recorded that Jesus spoke after being in the wilderness and being tempted by the Devil
Mat_4:17 From that time Jesus began to preach, and to say, Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.
Jesus showed us what the Kingom of Heaven was.
Mat_4:23 And Jesus went about all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing all manner of sickness and all manner of disease among the people.
Preaching, teaching, healing sickness and disease. Our lives and all around us are ‘the kingdom’ where we reign. As we walk through this world, it is our responsibility, our calling, our orders to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ with everyone. We should be healing, spiritually, physically, mentally, financially, and any other way a person needs healing, we should be doing just that. We should be casting out demons, raising the dead, causing the lame to walk, deaf to hear, mute to speak as we go through life. People ought to want to see you come.. almost demand you come that they may receive these blessings.
Fear not little flock, it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom. Luke 12:32
Be a Kingdom child. That is what God wants for you. Always the best for His children. Shelah.
