CONTEND FOR THE GLORY
Whom having not seen, ye love; in whom, though now ye see him not, yet believing, ye rejoice with joy unspeakable and full of glory. (1 Peter 1:8)
“Unspeakable joy is a container of the glory of God.” – Mark Hankins
The glory of God will increase for those who believe. The glory of the Lord is God’s manifested presence. In His presence is fullness of joy so there must be some extraordinary joy in the glory.
The first thing we should do is believe it and declare it. Expect it and it shall come to pass! We are living in the last days. The promises and prophecies are being fulfilled faster and faster. The atmosphere of Heaven and the aroma of praise are filling the church. Be strengthened in your faith and position yourself for “Heaven on Earth!”
Jesus said if you believed, you would see the glory of God. Jesus was not talking about someday far into the future — He was speaking of a manifestation of God’s goodness and power, now! This is the day the Lord has made, let us rejoice and be glad in it! Go ahead and rejoice as if your dream is coming to pass! Let the good times roll!
Confession: The glory of God is manifesting in my life because I believe. (John 11:40) God’s promises are being fulfilled in my life and my dreams are coming to pass!
