In our Focal Scripture, Jesus made mention of the glory of God which Martha should see if only she believed. By Jesus’ words, the belief of Martha was supposed to empower her to see the glory of God. The word glory as severally used in scriptures comes from the Hebrew word ‘chabod’ which means ‘weight’. So there was a weight that Martha should see if only she believed. There was a weight of divinity that was tied to belief.
Friend, if truly you have cast your belief in God, then there is a weight of glory that you should begin to see. Your belief and faith in God is the only qualification you need to see the glory and splendor of God. If you have embraced Jesus, the next thing you should ask for is a revelation of God’s glory in your life; it’s your right to encounter your Father in glory; it’s your right to have a foretaste of the glory that your eternity will look like.
The glory of God is not a matter of words; it’s an experience. The glory of God is encountered. Before Moses encountered that glory, he spoke the words of God to the children of Israel, yet they strayed in his absence and made a golden calf which they began worshipping; but after he encountered God’s glory, they could not look on his face because it radiated with the glory of God. When you encounter God’s glory, your results change.
Moses did not need to tell anyone that he had been with God; his face simply told the story. He didn’t even know that his face shone, but it did all the same. When you encounter the glory of God, you won’t need to announce it to your generation because they will see it by themselves. When you encounter the glory of God, the fragrance and potency of His presence is infused into you, and no power of hell can contain or confine you.
On the Mount of Transfiguration, Jesus prayed and the fashion of His countenance was altered, and His garment became white. He encountered the glory of God in the place of prayer. Seek the Lord intensely in your place of prayer, and you will encounter the glory of God.
