Psalm 72:19
Blessed be His glorious name forever;
may the whole earth be filled with
His glory!
Amen and Amen!
Today, I've been thinking about God's glory. What it looks like; where I see it. I find that the whole earth really is filled with His glory!
I see it in the Spring rain filling the sky with grey tempest, pelting our green fields with wet. I see His glory in a smile, warm and genuine. Glory in reconciliation. Glory in pain that opens our hearts for healing. God's glory in the celebration of His Resurrection. I see His glory in the expanse of stars that hang over me at night. I hear Him in the Psalms put to music. I read His glory in the pages of my Bible. I feel it in hug. In an 'I love you' softly spoken before bed. I find His glory in truth. Truthfulness with myself, with others, with God. His Glory in prayer, that time to be quiet and empty before Him so we can be filled. I see His glory in my weakness, my failures. I see His glory in our neediness, our dependence on Him for all things.
His glory is ever-present, all around us. We can be instruments of God's glory if we're surrendered to, and filled by, Him. And Him alone.
This is my desire.
Psalm 27:4
One thing I have asked of the Lord,
that will I seek after:
that I may dwell in the house of the
all the days of my life,
to gaze upon the beauty of the Lord
and to inquire in his temple.
