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.

True Happiness

Thanks be to God for a Savior! True happiness is to know Him who has saved us and reconciled us to Himself through Christ. To know Him is to love Him and to keep His commandments. We live in troublesome times, but we have an anchor like no other. Take comfort in these words: 

"The Lord is exalted, for He dwells on high; He has filled Zion with justice and righteousness, wisdom and knowledge will be the stability of your times, and the strength of salvation; the fear of the Lord is His treasure." (Isaiah 33:5 & 6)

"Happy is the man who is always reverent, but he who hardens his heart will fall into calamity." (Proverbs 28:14)

"May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit." (Romans 15:13)

"Happy are the people whose God is the Lord!" (Psalm 144:15)

To God be the glory forever and ever. Amen.

Seasons of Transformation

To everything there is a season, a time for every purpose under heaven (Ecclesiastes 3:1). Throughout the seasons here on earth, we observe the changing landscapes of nature, and similarly in the various aspects of our lives, time and purpose unfolds according to God's plan, not ours. "I know that whatever God does, it shall be forever. Nothing can be added to it, and nothing taken from it. God does it, that men should fear before Him." (Ecclesiastes 3:14)

It is God who is excellent in counsel and guidance, who instructs and teaches the plowman. (Isaiah 28:23-29).

When the apostles inquired of Jesus concerning the restoration of the kingdom to Israel, Jesus said to them: "It is not for you to know times and seasons which the Father has put in His own authority. But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth." (Acts 1:7 & 8)

Praise God who equips, empowers and perfects His church in every good work to do His will. In every season, He is transforming our lives as we yield to the Holy Spirit—working in us that which is well-pleasing in His sight, through Jesus Christ—conforming us to the image of His dear Son. To Him be glory forevermore. Amen.

Blessed in Christ Jesus

And the Lord spoke to Moses saying: "Speak to Aaron and his sons, saying, 'This is the way you shall bless the children of Israel. Say to them: "The Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make His face shine upon you, and be gracious to you; the Lord lift up His countenance upon you, and give you peace." ' (Numbers 6:24-26)

"So they shall put My name on the children of Israel, and I will bless them." (Numbers 6:27)

Thanks be to our holy, merciful God and Savior, who has redeemed us and called us by His name. We are accepted in Christ; we are loved; we have peace with God; we are blessed. Amen.

Ephesians Chapter 1:3-6
Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ, just as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love, having predestined us to adoption as sons by Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the good pleasure of His will, to the praise of the glory of His grace, by which He made us accepted in the Beloved.

1 Peter 2:9 & 10
But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light; who once were not a people but are now the people of God, who had not obtained mercy but now have obtained mercy.
