April 9: The Glory Checklist

And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory ‘the glory’ of the Father.John 1:14

Read: II Peter 1:16-21

If you are serious about having God’s glory revealed and manifested over your life, you must pay attention to certain details of your spiritual walk. There are ‘agents’ of the glory pointed out in Scripture. When these agents are present in our lives, they enhance the glory of God on our lives. Of course God is the source of every blessing that we desire. One of the Psalms declares that God will give grace and glory, and will not withhold any good thing from His people (Psalms 84:11). However, God operates by principles in his Word. God’s glory is birthed in His Word. That’s why we must know His promises and hold on to them firmly with a resolve to never let them out of our sight. You know that was what Abraham had to do. The Bible says he staggered not at the promises of God but was strong in faith giving glory to God. He was tempted to doubt God’s Word, but He insisted on believing in them. And eventually, his dream and glory showed up by way of a son. That day when Isaac was born, Abraham had the pleasure of living in the manifestation of the promise that he had been holding on to for years! (Romans 4:20-21). His wife Sarah, who had previously been an object of mockery, now had the pleasure of inviting everyone to laugh with her. That is the same way people will laugh with you when God’s glory shows up on your life. But you must know His Word and hold on to it until it becomes manifested. The writer of John says God’s Word was made flesh and dwelt among us and then the glory became visible. So make the Word flesh today. Chew on it, meditate on it, and hold on to it. Then dwell on it until it dwells in you, and suddenly God’s glory will become visible in your life in Jesus name. Amen.
