TODAY’S PROPHETIC WORD
God says to ask and you will receive. You do not have because you do not ask. Let God show you His glory, His goodness, as you ask for those things that He has put on your heart.
GOD’S DOUBLE WHAMMY
The one-two punch of God’s goodness is what I like to call the “wow factor” – the glory of God in our relationship with Him. When you don’t see God’s goodness, you miss His glory altogether.
Moses, the Old Testament rock star who parted the Red Sea, turned the Nile to blood and talked to God like He was talking to a friend, and told his friend that he wanted a back stage pass to the greatest show on earth. Like Oliver Twist, who was dissatisfied with “three meals of thin gruel a day, an onion twice a week and half a roll on Sundays,” Moses wanted more out of his relationship with the Creator of the universe.
So he approached God in child-like faith and dared to do what you and I should do every day — he asked for more…
“…show me your glory.”
This is one of the all-time epic moments in all of human history. God is going to let Moses in on something He doesn’t let anyone else see — a peek, a glimpse, a shimmering second or two at the very heart of who God is. Not His work, not His ways, but Moses is going to see what God really, really, really looks like. Incredible!
This is God’s response to that bold request…
“And the LORD said, “I will cause all my goodness to pass in front of you, and I will proclaim my name, the LORD, in your presence…”
His very name is glory! So proclaim it!
TODAY IS A GOOD DAY TO BOLDLY CALL ON THE GLORIOUS NAME OF THE GREAT I AM! LIKE MOSES, ASK JESUS TO SHOW YOU HIS GLORY. THEN DON’T BE SURPRISED WHEN HE SHOWS UP IN YOUR LIFE AND SAYS A SUPERNATURAL ‘TA-DA!’ BECAUSE HE WILL, THAT I PROMISE YOU. HE WILL!
