We sometimes struggle when we try to define the Glory of God. Most times we associate God’s Glory with bright lights because that’s what was seen at the birth of Jesus. I learned long ago not to make the mistake of limiting God to one definition. Let’s expand our comprehension of God’s Glory. The Glory of God is the manifestation of God’s presence. Now we all know that when God manifests Himself supernaturally events happen.
John 2:5 The mother of Jesus said unto the servants, whatsoever Jesus says unto you, do it.
The first miracle Jesus performed was at the marriage feast in Cana. He told the servants to fill six water jugs with water and when they poured them out it was a high grade of wine. This is the Glory of God, the guests may not have seen the Glory but they all tasted it.
John 11:40 Jesus said to Martha, did I not say to you that if you would believe you should see the Glory of God?
Jesus stood at the tomb of Lazarus along with His two sisters Mary and Martha. He had to remind Martha as well as us, if she and we will believe we will see His Glory. Martha struggled to believe because Lazarus had been dead four days and he was pretty ripe. Jesus demonstrated there are no limits, no boundaries when it comes to His Glory. Jesus called Lazarus to “come forward” and immediately he appeared at the entrance of the tomb totally wrapped in traditional burial clothes. Then Jesus told the people to unwrap him and set him free. There is a revelation for us here, people who are spiritually dead cannot get free on their own, they need the church.
Ephesians 3:21 Unto Him be Glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages.
If Jesus is welcome in your church and He is permitted to move you will see His Glory. I dare say most churches don’t know the Jesus in the Bible, they know about the Jesus their denomination has presented to them. The church I was raised in did not know Jesus and they taught me what they didn’t know. If Jesus is not a member of your church you will need to fabricate your own glory.
2 Corinthians 3:18 We with clear vision behold like in a mirror the Glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from Glory to Glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord.
When we become like our natural father, it is said that we are a chip off the ole block! When we begin to see Jesus as He truly is we begin to resemble Him in our attributes. The Glory of God is not a “once in a lifetime” event, God intends to demonstrate Himself whenever His people gather in His Name. As we go from Glory to Glory or encounter to encounter we are changed into His image. Several times I have been told that I was just like my natural father. Why can’t people see that I’m just like my heavenly Father? They do not recognize who I emulate because they do not know Him.
The best gift I can give to a brother is to forgive them.
If I sow forgiveness,
I will reap mercy.
I have power to get wealth
and It’s all in my willingness to give.
My giving is my seed
and my reaping is my prosperity.

PRAYERS FOR OUR NATION
Protection for: People who are innocently being lured to America with false promises from our leadership. Lord, protect those people especially the children. Protect them and our nation from the flood of drugs, cartels, terrorists, traffickers and all the diseases that now have access to our cities and citizens. Post angels along our southern border. Expose the evil. Praying for our law officials and National Guard on the front lines. Give them protection and wisdom.
We pray in agreement with your Word: Luke 8:17 “Nothing is secret that will not be revealed, nor anything hidden that will not be known and come to light”. Truth cannot be hidden. The truth sets us free. Jesus is the Way, Truth and Light! Give the Righteous leaders boldness, wisdom and strength as they fight on the front lines. Give them every tool they need to carry out your will Father. Every person who is in a place of authority that does not have a legal “God right” to be there will be transformed or removed.
ALL LEGAL MATTERS: We pray for those legally gathering up and exposing the enemy’s lies. Protection for them and their families. All cover-ups and deeds done in darkness against the United States of America will have complete exposure. God’s plans and purpose for America will prevail.
