Google or God?

[The Glory Unveiled]

‘Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know.’ ( Jeremiah 33:3 )

In times of need, who do we first turn to? The people we first call on reveal a lot about our priorities and trust. Likewise, our priorities tell the kind of person we are and what we want from life. Do we turn to friends or Google before God? “Call to me” means God is ready, able and willing to listen to us and also provide the help we need. But the prerequisite is to call on Him. Make a call of prayer today. Dial those ‘heavenly numbers’ and connect to the towers of Heaven through the portals of Jesus’s name. Don’t tell Jesus only after you think all your options have failed you or may fail you. We need to learn to turn to Jesus in all and every circumstance. Mostly, we worry because we do not know the future, but the Lord Jesus who knew our future before we were born is certainly well equipped to help and rid us of fear and worry.

Prayer_Bead: Lord Jesus, teach me to trust in you and to call to you in all things. Save me from my fears and doubts. Teach me how to prioritise right in making decisions.

Unveiling the glory of God

[The Glory Unveiled]

And we, who with unveiled faces all reflect the Lord’s glory, are being transformed into his likeness with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit. ( 2 Corinthians 3:18 )

What aspect of the Lord does the world see in you? There is an aspect of God impressed on our spirit that comes alive when we behold His glory. No one encounters God and remains the same, especially when they see (experience) His glory–the tangible influence of His nature. We are transformed into the very image of God when we don’t veil our faces from the astonishing glory of God revealed to us through fellowship. When Moses descended from the presence of God, the glory of God remained on Him, so that the Israelites became afraid and Moses had to cover his face. But mysteriously, If they had stared at Moses they would have been affected by the same influence because the influence of God’s glory is contagious. The Spirit of God will cause the glory of God expressed through us as a result of our encounter with Him to increase from one level of glory to the other until the whole world is filled with the knowledge of God’s glory. Hallelujah!

Prayer_Bead: Spirit Divine, unveil the glory of your presence in me. Let the world see your glory as I fellowship with you.

Let nothing be wasted

[ The Glory Unveiled ]

When they had all had enough to eat, he [Jesus] said to his disciples, “Gather the pieces that are left over. Let nothing be wasted.” ( John 6:12 )

NB~[Jesus made this statement after feeding 5,000 men with 5 loaves of bread and 2 fishes.]

Most humans seem to have a helpless inclination to being wasteful. We love to discard things so easily. The filth around us reiterate the truth of this statement. Once we get what we want from someone or something, we discard them. We don’t seem to think the afterwards. Jesus, our model is not wasteful. As a good Shepherd, He will leave the 99 and go after the one. This is the nature of the man we imitate and hope to be like both on the inside and outside of ourselves. He has an attitude of love, compassion and possessiveness. We need to hold in high esteem anything and everything under our care. Multiplication comes by faithful stewardship in the economy of our kingdom. Let nothing be wasted.

Prayer_Bead: Lord Jesus, the Shepherd of my soul and spirit, instill in me the attitude of management and responsibility.

The Guidance of the Holy Spirit

[The Glory Unveiled]

But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all truth. He will not speak on his own; he will speak only what he hears, and he will tell you what is yet to come. ( John 16:13 )

Our level of experience and revelation into the things of the Spirit is largely dependent on our level of submission to the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit will guide us to the depth of truth when we submit to walk with Him and choose Him. So that the degree of our exposure to spiritual realities is dependent on the degree of our willingness to submit and consciously relate with the Spirit of Truth. Similarly, our degree of authority in Christ is the degree to which we commit to the Holy Spirit’s influence. In truth, the Holy Spirit can only guide us into all truth when we make Him the only guide of our souls. But if we continue to conflict the guidance of the Holy Spirit with the temporary pleasures of this world, we may stagnate in the ocean of ignorance and ineffectiveness. Let us submit to the guidance of the Holy Spirit.

Prayer_Bead: Holy Spirit, my Lord and guide, lead me into the truth of the mysteries of God by helping me to submit my understanding to you.

The Attitude of Christ

[The Glory Unveiled]

Therefore, since Christ suffered in his body, arm yourselves also with the same attitude, because he who has suffered in his body is done with sin. ( 1Peter 4:1 )

Prayer_Bead: Lord Jesus, arm me with the attitude of your mind. Help me to open up to your teachings and let the things of this world grow strangely in the eyes of my desires.

Attitude determines the overall (persona) behavioural expression of a person. The Lord Jesus while He walked the earth had a mental attitude that distinguished Him from the people around Him. His attitude kept Him on a predetermined course, in spite of what His environment dictated. Let us permit the mindset of Christ, to tear down the wall of our philosophies and ideology. Because until our attitude is align to His, we cannot be like Him, thus we cannot reflect the nature of God. When we understand and crystallise the attitude and mindset of our role model—Jesus, we are able to mirror Him very well. Jesus understood the need for suffering in the flesh as a prerequisite for the attainment of salvation for humanity. So that when we believe that we have suffered with Christ, we are free from sin and its penalty. So let us embrace the same mental attitude as believers.
