The Presence of The Lord
The glory of the Lord is holiness, the glory of the Lord releases power, the glory of the Lord brings revelation, the glory of the Lord brings victory, the glory of the Lord brings peace.
When Moses left the Israelites to seek God’s counsel, Whenever He returned His face was shining. It was shining so much He had to cover it up at a point ,so He could communicate with the Israelites.
Exodus 34:35 and the people of Israel would see the radiant glow of his face. So he would put the veil over his face until he returned to speak with the LORD.
But God wants us to see His glory beyond how He impacted Moses.We have the Holy Spirit living in us as God’s children and God’s glory can be manifested through us beyond how it shown through Moses. God wants His glory to be shown through us to a broken world.
2 Corinthians 3:7-11The old way, with laws etched in stone, led to death, though it began with such glory that the people of Israel could not bear to look at Moses’ face.For his face shone with the glory of God, even though the brightness was already fading away. 8 Shouldn’t we expect far greater glory under the new way, now that the Holy Spirit is giving life? 9 If the old way, which brings condemnation, was glorious, how much more glorious is the new way, which makes us right with God! 10 In fact, that first glory was not glorious at all compared with the overwhelming glory of the new way.11 So if the old way, which has been replaced, was glorious, how much more glorious is the new, which remains forever!
Lord I want to experience more and more of your glory.We’ve got to experience more and more of God’s glory. That we don’t just see change in our lives, that we see change in our communities, in our cities. And as the bible says we can be bold, because of Jesus, we don’t need to hide our face, we’ve got to show our face so lives can be impacted
2 Corinthians 3:11-12 Since this new way gives us such confidence, we can be very bold.13 We are not like Moses, who put a veil over his face so the people of Israel would not see the glory, even though it was destined to fade away.
Also so amazing that when the glory of the Lord filled the tabernacle, that the Israelites would stop their Journey until the day God’s glory left the tabernacle.
In the presence of the Lord there is freedom, there is liberty, there is fullness of Joy.
The Israelites needed to rest in God’s presence. So much that their journey to the promise land was on hold. God’s presence is more important than the plans you have ahead and the plans He has for you. Because its resting in His presence that you will uncover the steps that will lead to your victory.
The Victory matters and it will happen, but you’ve got to spend time with the King of Kings to know how you will conquer. You’ve got to rest in His presence and wait on Him to uncover the secrets to your next level.
We’ve got to choose a time to rest in God’s presence. We’ve got to make time where everything is put on hold for our King. Because He creates a new day, and we won’t be able to enter the new day and walk in His steps without consulting Him.
The Israelites put their journey on hold. Have you put God ahead of your plans, or have you put your plans ahead of God? The journey is not as important as the one who paved the journey. There would be no Journey without Him.
We can experience more of God’s glory when we spend time with Him. When we seek His face and put everything aside and put our mind and our hearts on Him. When we say “Lord I want your presence more than all you have for me”. More than the riches and gold that will perish.
John 11:40 Jesus said to her, “Did I not tell you that if you believed you would see the glory of God?”
