So the Lord said to Moses, “I will also do this thing that you have spoken; for you have found grace in My sight, and I know you by name.”
And he said, “Please, show me Your glory.” ~Exodus 33:17-18
To read today’s portion of scripture, you can purchase The One Year Bible or find the following in your Bible:
Last night and this morning at our Monday and Tuesday Joyful Life gathering, we sat in a circle studying our “Walk in the Spirit” study, and at a certain point our discussion turned to heaven.
“What do you most look forward to seeing there?” I asked both groups. The answers varied. “I have four babies there that I haven’t yet met,” said one mother who had suffered four miscarriages. Another can’t wait to see her husband again. We talked about the joy we’ll feel at finding our sin nature slipping away, along with all the pain and shame and regret that belongs only on earth.
And then we talked about the eyes of Jesus, and how we cannot wait to see them for the first time.
Nicole’s answer has stayed with me all day. She said, “Every once in awhile, we have a little moment of revelation here on earth, where something new about God suddenly makes sense. Think about what it will be like in heaven when He’s right there with us, and we’re surrounded by those moments of revelation all the time!”
I can’t wait for that. I can’t wait to see the Lord in all His splendor and majesty, and to know Him fully. And I don’t want to wait.
Oh, Lord. Show us Your glory now.
