Glory Within

The Glory Within
God’s Desire 

Zech. 2:4-5 “…be a city without walls…I myself

will be a wall of fire…declares the Lord,

‘and I will be…glory within.’ 

Over many years of discipleship and study I have heard multiple teachings concerning knowing God. In those teaching moments wonderful leaders declared that when anyone egotistically declares they know God then you are about to be sold an idol. Some have even revealed a disturbing truth that in man’s effort to provide an understandable view of God we end up creating a powerless god in our image.

Romans 11:33 (NLT) “Oh, how great are God’s riches and wisdom and knowledge! How impossible it is for us to understand his decisions and his ways!”

1 Cor. 1:29 “no one can ever boast

in the presence of God.”

Isaiah responds with these words…

…all the nations of the world
    are but a drop in the bucket.
They are nothing more
    than dust on the scales.
He picks up the whole earth
    as though it were a grain of sand. (40:15)

John 1:18 and 1 John 4:12 no one has ever seen God. Moses caught a glimpse of God leaving and encounter with Him and Moses face glowed with God’s Glory…Ex. 34:29-35…

The Radiance, Presence, Power or the known reality of God is experienced again and again. These experiences change us to know more of Who He is as He chooses to reveal Himself.

I Chronicles 16:27

“Glory and Honor are in His presence; strength and gladness are in His place.”

What is The Glory…It is the beauty that emanates from His character…words cannot explain Him…

His Glory: (The Weighty felt presence of God)

  • Splendor

        Magnificence - Brilliance - Grandeur 

These words are amazing! WOW

  • Majesty

         Dignity – Respect – Poise

Can’t you just see Jesus on the throne!

  • Strength

          Power – Force –Vigor

Victory is not a want but a reality!

  • Joy

 Delight –Happiness – Enjoyment – Bliss    

        Ecstasy

Everyone is seeking joy & happiness.

It is my desire to see this congregation filled with the UNEXPAINABLE. My desire is to have these gatherings radiate the humbling, challenging, life supporting presence of Almighty God.

Let’s investigate our motives and our hungers…

Wherever God’s people are The Lord has declared that His desire is to be “The Glory within”!

Ps. 73:26 “My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.”

1 Chron 16:27-35…Ascribe to the Lord, all you families of nations, ascribe to the Lord glory and strength.
29 Ascribe to the Lord the glory due his name;
    bring an offering and come before him.
Worship the Lord in the splendor of hisholiness.
30     Tremble before him, all the earth!
    The world is firmly established; it cannot be moved.

31 Let the heavens rejoice, let the earth be glad;
    let them say among the nations, “The Lord reigns!”
32 Let the sea resound, and all that is in it;
    let the fields be jubilant, and everything in them!
33 Let the trees of the forest sing,
    let them sing for joy before the Lord,
    for he comes to judge the earth.

34 Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good;
    his love endures forever.
35 Cry out, “Save us, God our Savior;
    gather us and deliver us from the nations,
that we may give thanks to your holy name,
    and glory in your praise.”

Verse 29 …Worship the Lord clothed in His holiness…This can only be experienced with Christ Jesus as Lord and Savior…
