“The Lord works in mysterious ways!”……..
I remember hearing that religiously growing up in the church! The truth is that God’s ways are infinite. His knowledge excels far beyond the capacity of the human intellect. God’s mind holds endless time because He remains a perpetual reality. This is why there are many depths to God. God tells us outright that He gives His secrets to those who He can trust.
“The secret of the LORD is with them that fear him; and he will shew them his covenant.” -Psalm 25:14
You see, God does not have to remain an enigma to humanity. The mysticism that humanity ignorantly places on His pure nature should no longer make it laborious for others to receive and trust in Him. GOD WANTS TO REVEAL HIMSELF TO US IN WAYS WE UNDERSTAND! …….but will we allow Him, or are we afraid? God is hidden in gross darkness from our hindered perspective because our reality in Him is unsure until we grow in the grace and the knowledge of Jesus Christ.
“For, behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but the LORD shall arise upon thee, and his glory shall be seen upon thee.” -Isaiah 60:2
We insist on controlling what we don’t understand because we fear the unknown. God is light and there is no darkness in Him, but until we receive His Son as our Lord and follow after Him, the true love of the Father remains a mystery. Truth be told, humanity needs a daddy! WE NEED ABBA LIKE NEVER BEFORE! Our existence and the key to unlocking our destiny is in the bosom of El Shaddai! He is more than enough in this life, and He holds the key to why we are here.
The difficulties we face as believers is that we don’t understand our distinction amongst others in the world. Let’s ask ourselves this question: “Have I been moving with the cloud and the fire?”
“And he said unto him, If thy presence go not with me, carry us not up hence”.- Exodus 33:15
True believers are distinguished by His presence. You can tell a true believer because they have that special something about them. They have that….”Hey something is different about you” look, ….or that, “I don’t know what it is about you, but I want what you have.”
God’s glory is with that person! It is time for us to be like Moses who asked God to show him His glory! To know something is to become acquainted with it. You must be intimate with its details. To know something is for it to be exposed to you. You have the imprint of God and your imprint is with Him! You know God’s touch! When you know the ridges of His finger print then you know the mysteries, the coding, the trigger words that reveal His secrets! You begin to decode hidden phenomena in the earth!
His presence always being there secures you as the one who has the advantage above all enemies. His sovereignty abides with you! This is how Moses was able to know that God’s favor was with him and the people. The glory is God literally revealing Himself to humanity. You won’t leave His presence without His secrets. His word will stand not only as the final authority, but the pre-eminent guide that will direct your path.
Manifesting the Kingdom reveals God’s glory!
God is His kingdom, and the Kingdom is God’s!
“………… For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.” -Matthew 16:13
And he shall reign over the house of Jacob for ever; and of his kingdom there shall be no end. -Luke 1:33
13 Now therefore, I pray thee, if I have found grace in thy sight, shew me now thy way, that I may know thee, that I may find grace in thy sight: and consider that this nation is thy people.
14 And he said, My presence shall go with thee, and I will give thee rest.
15 And he said unto him, If thy presence go not with me, carry us not up hence.
16 For wherein shall it be known here that I and thy people have found grace in thy sight? is it not in that thou goest with us? so shall we be separated, I and thy people, from all the people that are upon the face of the earth.
17 And the LORD said unto Moses, I will do this thing also that thou hast spoken: for thou hast found grace in my sight, and I know thee by name.
18 And he said, I beseech thee, shew me thy glory.
