Devotion: The Glory of the Lord

The Lord speaking to the prophet Habakkuk about His righteous judgments declared, "For the earth shall be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord as the waters cover the sea." (Habakkuk 2:14)

If we want to behold God's glory, it can be seen and known in His character. Moses besought the Lord to see His glory and the Lord said to him, "I will make all my goodness pass before thee, and I will proclaim the name of the Lord before thee; and will be gracious to whom I will be gracious, and will show mercy on whom I will show mercy." And He said, "Thou canst not see My face: for there shall no man see me, and live." And the Lord said, "Here is a place by Me, and you shall stand on the rock. So it shall be, while My glory passes by, that I will put you in the cleft of the rock, and will cover you with My hand while I pass by. Then I will take away My hand, and You shall see My back; but My face shall not be seen." (Exodus 33:19-23)

So the Lord hid Moses in the rock and passed before him and proclaimed, "The Lord, the Lord God, merciful and gracious, longsuffering, and abounding in goodness and truth, keeping mercy for thousands, forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin, by no means clearing the guilty, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children and the children's children to the third and fourth generation." (Exodus 34:6 & 7)

In the Book of John:
"And the Word became flesh, and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth. (John 1:14)

Praise God who has saved us by His grace, whose glory fills the lives of His children. "But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord." (2 Corinthians 3:18)

"For now we see in a mirror, dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part, but then I shall know just as I also am known." (1 Corinthians 13:12)

"Beloved, now we are children of God; and it has not yet been revealed what we shall be, but we know that when He is revealed, we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is." (1 John 3:2)

Glory to God! The day cometh, when we shall behold Him face to face, in all of His glory. Live for Jesus; proclaim His name in all the earth. Amen.
