The Glory of the Lord

“Behold, the glory of the God of Israel was coming from the way of the east…and the earth shone with His glory…And the glory of the LORD came into the house by the way of the gate facing toward the east…and behold, the glory of the LORD filled the house.” Ezekiel 43:2-5 NASB

In his vision, Ezekiel experienced something extraordinary. It was an experience beyond anything he could imagine or even describe. He saw the glory of God.

How important was this? Four different times, in the space of just a few words, he talked about this glory.

What exactly is the “glory of the Lord”? The root word here indicates something heavy and weighty, a great burden. Here we see how God’s glory might be seen as a kind of weight. It is something that is deep and profound, something supernatural.

This glory is distinctive and powerful, something that transforms anyone who encounters it. Indeed, it is the very essence of God Himself. It is a moment when we touch the supernatural and get a glimpse of what God really is like.

But many people never experience this glory. Some are spiritually blind. It’s also possible to block out the glory because our eyes are focused on the things of this world or we’re consumed with our own interests. We also are unlikely to experience God’s glory if we fail to seek Him or if we allow ourselves to be dominated by the superficial things of the flesh.

So how do we position ourselves to see this glory? Like Ezekiel, we must humble ourselves before God. We must open our hearts to Him and spend time in His presence. We must fill our minds and hearts with His Word. And we must be filled with His Spirit and surrender our lives to pleasing Him.

In your life, seek a deeper dimension in your relationship with the Lord. Seek to know Him more intimately. Cry out for more of His presence and His glory. Serve Him. Worship Him.

Prayer

Father, set me free from focusing on the things of this world. I long to experience Your glory. Fill me with Your Spirit, and use me to bring You glory. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
