Glory Fills The Earth!
Daily Word-08.14.19-Pastor Sheliah
“The earth shall be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord, As the waters cover the sea,” (Habakkuk.2:14)
I am hearing reports of “Glory Break-Out” everywhere – and I’m hearing of preaching about the GLORY OF GOD all around!
Yes! Yes! Interesting that even from the Creation the Father spoke of His “Glory,” and Exodus records that the “glory of the Lord appeared in the clouds.” But NOW just as the prophet wrote many are “acknowledging His Glory” (Hab.2:14)!
NOW – That which will define us is the Glory of God – which becomes obvious in and on His people – corporately. As a people intent on one thing—God’s glory—only — He will be so attracted to His Presence in us – that He will appear in and through us in fullness and power! We don’t just want to believe FOR God’s presence, but we believe IN God’s presence.
In His Presence we are changed, and thus it is true that ➖ “As He is, so are we in this world.” (1John.4:17)
NOW we can see it NOW we can taste it, NOW we can hear it, smell it, and feel it! NOW we are experiencing His Presence —one-on-one very personally and in the secret places - not just in the public forum!
(The “one-man-show” is over – Now it is the Glory of God showing up and showing off in you!)
The unity and the glory Paul described is happening! “Now the Lord is the Spirit; and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty. But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, ARE BEING transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord.” (2Cor.3:18)
“Are being“ is a “PRESENTLY ACTIVE” verb form! Perhaps you have not yet experienced all that God has for you. Could it be that we have by our own mind-set actually POSTPONED what He has wanted to do in and through us all along! Let’s get “out of the way” – and let God be God – fully manifesting Himself in all of HIS GLORY! Allow Him to be “presently active” in your life and you will experience His Manifested Glory!
We too are “the voice of one shouting – PREPARE the way of the Lord! Make a straight highway through the wastelands for our God!”
“Every valley shall be lifted up, and every mountain and hill shall be made low: and the crooked shall be made straight and the rough places made smooth...
“Then the Glory of the Lord will be revealed and all people will see it all together! The Lord has spoken!” (Isaiah.40:2-5)
*** YES NOW — the whole earth IS being filled with the KNOWLEDGE OF HIS GLORY! *** (and we are “carriers of His Glory” in this Earth!) ~ Shelia Hart Artt
