Look Inwards For The Perfect Glory;
To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory (Colossians 1:27).
Exodus 24:16 tells us how the glory of the Lord rested on Mount Sinai, and the glory-cloud covered it for six days. It shows us something: the glory of God’s presence, assumed the visible form of a cloud over Mount Sinai. This physical manifestation of God’s glory was easier for the Jewish congregation in the wilderness to relate with, because they were men and women of the senses.
Today, however, there’re still some in the Church who want to relate with the glory of God from a physical perspective. For example, when you talk about the glory of God being present in a Church meeting, they expect to see a cloud or some physical manifestation as it was in the Old Testament; but God’s purpose is beyond having the glory in the building or environment.
No doubt, some people would have their faith bolstered if they saw something physical like a cloud filling the room, but it’s because they’re babes in the things of God. They’re yet to come up to the higher levels of understanding and manifestations of the glory of God. The Lord Jesus made it clear that the Kingdom of God doesn’t come with observation, nor is it something to be sought for in the environment. He said the kingdom is within you, that means it’s in your heart (Luke 17:20-21).
God’s excellent glory is in your spirit! Christ in you, is God’s perfect glory. Hallelujah! Ephesians 3:20 describes it as “…the power that worketh in us.”
The power at work in you is the Holy Ghost; He’s the glory of God, and He lives in you. Observe that it didn’t say “…the power that shall be present in your environment,” no! The anointing works from within you; therefore, look inwards, to the glory within.
Dear heavenly Father, I thank you for your power that’s at work in me. I’ve become the brightness and expression of your perfect glory, daily showing forth your virtues and perfections. Your glory fills my life, and I’m eternally grateful that I’ve become both the reflection, and reflector, of your excellent glory, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
