7 THINGS THE GLORY OF GOD CAN DO FOR YOU
We started talking about the glory of God on Monday and I have been sharing with you my message preached at The GloryLand 2014. We learned that God made us in His image, and that the image of God refers to His glory; we learned that sin robbed man of the image of God, and that Jesus came to restore the image of God in us. Today, God expects us to manifest the glory in us just as Jesus manifested His glory while on earth.
We dwell in the glory of God today! 1 Peter 2:9 says that we were called out of darkness into His marvellous light. Hallelujah! As we continue to have fellowship with the Lord, we will enjoy more and more of His glory.
Here are some things that the glory can accomplish in our lives:
1) The glory quickens our physical bodies (Deuteronomy 34:7).
2) The glory protects (Job 1:10, Isaiah 58:8).
3) The glory prospers (Isaiah 60:1-11).
4) The glory empowers for exploits (John 2:11).
5) The glory beautifies (Isaiah 60:15).
6) The glory will make you shine (Isaiah 60:1).
7) The glory will make you walk in dominion (Genesis 1:26-28).
Isaiah 60:1-2 says, “Arise, shine; For your light has come! And the glory of the Lord is risen upon you. For behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, And deep darkness the people; But the Lord will arise over you, And His glory will be seen upon you.” I pray that from today, the glory of God will be seen upon you, in Jesus name.
