Encountering God’s glory

By Johnson Omomadia
God is a God of glory. D angels of God bask in that glory as they stand in His presence. His glory is so strong that the angels ministering to Him cover their faces. When Isaiah had a revelation of God’s glory, he saw his filthiness. God’s glory will reveal your true state to you. In His presences, wrong motives and all manner of evils are exposed. This is why we must encounter His glory.

Isaiah the Prophet of God cried out, “woe is me”. God’s glory reveals your true position. God’s glory shows you were you are lacking. It humbles you. Are you full of yourself, your achievements and what you know? It is a sign that you have not truly encountered His glory. You cannot encounter God’s glory and see your achievements. You can of your own do nothing.

Most believers only experience a trickle of His glory. Some weep and some are slain in the Spirit. When the fullness of His glory comes down in an assembly, people are not able to move. The priest is helpless and God takes absolute control. In II Chron. 7:1-3, the bible says “Now when Solomon had made an end of praying, the fire came down from heaven, and consumed the burnt offering and the sacrifices; and the glory of the Lord filled the house. And the priests could not enter into the house of the Lord, because the glory of the Lord had filled the Lord’s house. And when all the children of Isreal saw how the fire came down, and the glory of the Lord upon the house, they bowed themselves with their faces to the ground upon the pavement, and worshipped, and praised the Lord, saying, for He is good; for His mercy endureth for ever”.

God’s glory will humble every man. It is so strong and powerful that it makes a man to surrender. D glory of God upon your life will promote you. It will make nations to honour and celebrate you. It will cause your greatest enemy to bow down before you. God’s glory will open shut doors. It will command unusual favour. It makes mountain to melt like wax. God’s glory is untouchable. I pray that d glory of God will rest upon you and all that concerns you will become untouchable in Jesus name.

To see God’s glory you must be prepared to go higher (Rev. 4:1). This is so because your location will determine the level of God’s glory that you encounter. Apostle John was only able to encounter God’s greater glory when he went higher. Anyone in the valley of sin, fear, doubt or disobedience should not expect to see God’s glory. As long as you keep rising and falling without making commitment to be steadfast in Christ, there is little or no glory for you to see. It is time for you to move up. Move up in your faith, consecration, increase your love for Him, triple your prayer life and spend more time in the word, praise and intense worship.

When you encounter God’s glory, you will surrender the more. Rev. 1:17 says “and when I saw Him, I fell at His feet as dead…….”. This means he (Isaiah) totally yielded to God. He surrendered completely. As long as there are areas in your life that you cannot yield to Jesus or that Jesus cannot touch or enter, no glory will be experienced.

When Peter yielded his boat to Jesus, he encountered the glory of the Almighty God. What was empty began to overflow. The glory of God upon his life and business began to attract helpers. His peers began to look up to him. He became the pace setter to them. Beloved you and I urgently need to encounter God’s glory. It is for our benefit. Encounter God’s glory and you will see that shame or reproach disappear from your life, family, business and all that concerns you. Please pray this prayers. Father, everything I have withheld from you, I surrender all to you. Father, show me your glory. God bless you, our great country Nigeria and President Goodluck Jonathan.

Have you given your life to Jesus? If not, please pray this prayer. Father, I come to you as I am. I invite Jesus into my life to be my personal Lord and Saviour. Wash me cleanse with the blood of Jesus and empower me with the power of your Holy Spirit. Thank you, Father for saving my soul and making me your child.
