Glory

How can you believe, when you receive glory from one another and you do not seek the glory that is from the one and only God?
John 5:44 NASB

Where does glory come from? I believe there is but one source. God Himself. Worthy of honor, praise, because no one, NO ONE can compare to the attributes of God. If there is anything of glory in us it comes from God.
Even Jesus stated “I do not receive glory from men;” “If I glorify Myself, My glory is nothing; it is My Father who glorifies Me,”.

I know I struggle with this and maybe you do too. One of my love languages is adoration and I sometimes, a lot, seek the approval of men rather than the approval of God. It’s a fine line but it comes down to the fact that anything gloified in me is not me but God in me! For it is not he who commends himself that is approved, but he whom the Lord commends. So let us strive to give any glory given to us back to God from whom it originates.
John 5:41/John 8:54/John 12:43/2 Corinthians 10:18 NASB

🌹Then the glory of the Lord went up from the cherub to the threshold of the temple, and the temple was filled with the cloud and the court was filled with the brightness of the glory of the Lord.
Ezekiel 10:4 NASB
🌹Now to the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only God, be honor and glory forever and ever. Amen.
1 Timothy 1:17 NASB

Philippians 3:20-21

For our citizenship (commonwealth) is in heaven, from which also we eagerly wait for a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ; who will transform (our lowly body) the body of our humble state into conformity with (His glorious body) the body of His glory, by the exertion of the power that He has even to subject all things to Himself.
Philippians 3:20‭-‬21 NASB

I praise You, Lord Jesus Christ, Savior, who has the power to transform my lowly body
into conformity with Your glorious body. I surrender to Your yoke of power over me. Thank You for opening the door of opportunity to partake in Your household, no longer a stranger or alien, but a fellow citizen with the saints. God, I pray for Your church, that we will conduct ourselves in a manner worthy of the gospel of Christ, standing firm in one spirit, with one mind, striving together for the faith of the gospel.
Father God, I will keep seeking the things above, where Christ is seated at Your right hand, because I have been raised up with Christ who died for me.
For just as I have borne the image of the earthy, I will also bear the image of the heavenly, for I know Your word says, “that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; nor does the perishable inherit the imperishable”. But God You also promised that in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet; for the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised imperishable, and we will be changed. For this perishable must put on the imperishable, and this mortal must put on immortality. Hallelujah to the King! For You I eagerly wait Lord Jesus. Amen.
Ephesians 2:19/Philippians 1:27/Colossians 3:1/1 Corinthians 15:49‭-‬50/1 Corinthians 15:52‭-‬53 NASB

🌹When Christ, who is our life, is revealed, then you also will be revealed with Him in glory.

Shine

Since that time no prophet has risen in Israel like Moses, whom the Lord knew face to face,
Deuteronomy 34:10 NASB

Thus the Lord used to speak to Moses face to face, just as a man speaks to his friend.
Exodus 33:11a NASB

It came about when Moses was coming down from Mount Sinai (and the two tablets of the testimony were in Moses’ hand as he was coming down from the mountain), that Moses did not know that the skin of his face shone because of his speaking with Him.

So when Aaron and all the sons of Israel saw Moses, behold, the skin of his face shone, and they were afraid to come near him. the sons of Israel would see the face of Moses, that the skin of Moses’ face shone. So Moses would replace the veil over his face until he went in to speak with Him.
Exodus 34:29‭-‬30‭, ‬35 NASB

For God, who said, “Light shall shine out of darkness,” is the One who has shone in our hearts to give the Light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Christ.
2 Corinthians 4:6 NASB

Does your light shine in the darkness?
Does Jesus shine in your heart from having  spent time with Him? Does your heart give the Light of knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus so others see?

🌹Time spent in prayer and reading the Bible, God’s Holy Word, is never wasted.

God, shine Your Light in and through me that others may see Your glory and come to the knowledge of You. Amen.

Promise to Disclose

He who has My commandments and keeps them is the one who loves Me; and he who loves Me will be loved by My Father, and I will love him and will disclose Myself to him.”
John 14:21 NASB

I love those who love me (wisdom); And those who diligently seek me will find me.
Proverbs 8:17 NASB

The Lord said to Moses, “I will also do this thing of which you have spoken; for you have found favor in My sight and I have known you by name.” Then Moses said, “I pray You, show me Your glory!”
Exodus 33:17‭-‬18 NASB

Jesus *said to her, “Did I not say to you that if you believe, you will see the glory of God?”
John 11:40 NASB

disclose: to make known, reveal or uncover


🌹Is God disclosing Himself to you?

Jesus, I desire to see Your glory, for You to reveal Yourself to me. I love You, Lord God and through Your word I diligently seek You and Your wisdom. I long to be obedient to Your commandments out of reverence for You. Would You show me Your glory? Will you disclose Yourself to me? If I have found favor in Your sight my Lord God, I believe You will show Your glory to me.
In Jesus name and for His glory, amen.

Friday’s Praise: The King

And every created thing which is in heaven and on the earth and under the earth and on the sea, and all things in them, I heard saying, “To Him who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb, be blessing and honor and glory and dominion forever and ever.”
Revelation 5:13 NASB

🌹Prayer:

Yours, O Lord, is the greatness and the power and the glory and the victory and the majesty, for all that is in the heavens and in the earth is yours. Yours is the kingdom, O Lord, and you are exalted as head above all.
Now to the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only God, be honor and glory forever and ever. Amen.

Disconnecting Day 2a

Day 2 was a Sunday and as I work at a church my husband and I visited a neighboring church.

Sunday School: The Gospel’s Goal
First verse to catch my attention? Isaiah 43:7

Everyone who is called by My name, And whom I have created for My glory,Whom I have formed, even whom I have made.”

Isn’t this what God informed me yesterday?
So, what is our purpose in being created?

Whether, then, you eat or drink or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.
1 Corinthians 10:31 NASB

For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand so that we would walk in them.
Ephesians 2:10 NASB
(We are created for “good works”, not for our own glory and “good will”).

Let your light shine before men in such a way that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven.
Matthew 5:16 NASB

🌹Every God given breath, necessary for life, is to bring glory to God.

Before Creation

Now, Father, glorify Me together with Yourself, with the glory which I had with You before the world was.
John 17:5 NASB

Jesus knew His mission before He ever left His heavenly throne, yet He came anyway. He came for the Father, in obedience. He came for you and me out of His abundant love. Jesus came to reconcile the Father to His creation. He came that we may know His glory and share in it.

The glory which You have given Me I have given to them, that they may be one, just as We are one; Father, I desire that they also, whom You have given Me, be with Me where I am, so that they may see My glory which You have given Me, for You loved Me before the foundation of the world.
John 17:22‭, ‬24 NASB

Remembering the glory with the Father that was before creation began. Before Jesus would leave heaven and come to earth. That is our hope, that we may know and share in the glory that Jesus knew before He left His place with the Father.

🌹What a sacrifice. What abundant love. What a hope we have in Jesus. Are you living/walking in His glory now?

Look to God

Have you ever experienced, truly experienced the joy of the Lord? I’m not taking about when things are going well in your life and you rejoice and are thankful to God; but when you are in the midst of turmoil and nothing is going right and you have a joy beyond explanation. Your heart is overflowing with love for the Lord. When you can’t contain it and your face shows it. Your mouth is opened with praise and song to THE  awesome God of all. When your eyes see only Jesus and His abundant love for you.

David wrote in time of fear as He fled from King Saul. He looked to his God.

My heart is steadfast, O God, my heart is steadfast; I will sing, yes, I will sing praises! Awake, my glory! Awake, harp and lyre! I will awaken the dawn. I will give thanks to You, O Lord, among the peoples; I will sing praises to You among the nations. For Your lovingkindness is great to the heavens And Your truth to the clouds. Be exalted above the heavens, O God; Let Your glory be above all the earth.
Psalms 57:7‭-‬11 NASB

🌹Hoping you experience the joy of the Lord today.

Gladness of Heart

Righteousness and justice are the foundation of Your throne; Lovingkindness and truth go before You.
How blessed are the people who know the joyful sound! O Lord, they walk in the light of Your countenance.
In Your name they rejoice all the day, And by Your righteousness they are exalted.
For You are the glory of their strength, And by Your favor our horn is exalted.
Psalms 89:14‭-‬17 NASB

Are you walking on the solid foundation of God’s righteousnes and justice, enjoying His lovingkindness and truth resonating in and through you?
Our walk with Almighty God is not for “a moment”. A moment of our need. A moment when we are suffering or in despair. Our walk with God is for all the moments, momentS that continue into eternity.
God, how blessed are we who walk in the light of Your countenance and rejoice in Your name ALL day long. It is by Your righteousness alone that we are exalted, for we have no righteousness of our own. You, Lord God, are the glory of our strength. By Your favor we are filled with joy that overflows to others.

🌹With trumpets and the sound of the horn Shout joyfully before the King, the Lord.
Psalms 98:6 NASB

Glory in His holy name; Let the heart of those who seek the Lord be glad.
Psalms 105:3 NASB
