Show Me Your Glory


God is in the business of transformation. How will you seek to be changed and renewed by the Lord?

Hudson Taylor, the missionary to China, said, "We are changed by beholding." He may have had 2 Corinthians 3:18 in mind. "But we all, with unveiled face beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as from the Lord, the Spirit." Isaiah was changed by beholding the glory of God, the awesome revelation of his holiness (Isa. 6:1-8).

For years, every January I would take some time with God and ask him what he wanted me to pray for the year. And for years, the answer was the same, "Show me your glory." When you come face to face with God's holy glory, you do one of two things: run away or run to his grace for transformation. Ponder the prayer requests of Moses: "Let me know Your ways that I may know You. Show me Your glory. Go among us (Exo. 33:11-19, 34:5-10)." Consider the price of speaking intimately with God friend-to-friend. Is the price worth the glory? What heart attitudes does God need to transform, so that you can see all God's goodness and know him as he really is? As you are convicted by the character of the Glory at whom you gaze, make Psalm 51:10-11 your prayer: "Renew my spirit" from glory to glory. 

Just between you and God, pray through these transformation points in the verses below. "By your Spirit and for Your glory, renew in me a right spirit of ____________ .  I want this to be a new beginning of your glory and your Spirit unhindered in my life." Look up the Bible verses that God puts his finger on.
