LOOK OUT FOR HIS GLORY;
He staggered not at the promise of God through unbelief; but was strong in faith, giving glory to God (Romans 4:20).
There’s nothing, absolutely nothing, the Lord hasn’t done for you yet. Ephesians 1:3 emphasizes this truth: “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ.” He has already endowed you with every blessing you could ever imagine. The Apostle Peter also attested to this in 2 Peter 1:3: “According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue.”
This therefore means that your life should be that of praise, glory, and thanksgiving to the Lord, every day, everywhere, and at all times. Knowing that the Lord has so blessed you, you should live to glorify Him in all things. Seek His glory in all circumstances. Instead of looking at the problem, sickness, pain or trouble, choose to look at the Word, and act accordingly. His Word is where the glory is. Abraham is a perfect example in this regard. God told him that through his wife, Sarah, he would have a son, in whom all the nations of the earth would be blessed. Sarah wasn’t only barren at the time; she had also reached the menopause. What then did Abraham do? He was strong in faith, giving glory to God.
Abraham had a faith-lock on his miracle by looking out only for the glory of God in that contrary situation. No wonder, he gave God glory. You give glory to God by upholding His Word as the absolute truth, refusing to allow circumstances to sway you otherwise. If for example, you’ve had problems in your physical body, maybe it’s a growth somewhere in your body; don’t talk about the growth. Don’t complain about the pain. Instead, choose to see that it’s gone from your body, and as a result, start giving glory to God. Confess your healing and health, not the sickness. Declare prosperity, not lack. Speak life, not death. That’s one sure way of looking out for His glory in your life.
