Glory to God on high.

Glory to God in the highest!

Cease not to give thanks for you, making mention of you in my prayers; That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him: The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints, And what is the exceeding greatness of his power to us-ward who believe, according to the working of his mighty power. (Eph 1:16-19)

I give thanks this morning for the Body of Christ, the saints around the world, His remnant people. There is one thing that I have noticed as I have met genuine saints from every conceivable background. They have ” eyes of understanding.” Not head knowledge, but eyes of understanding. Notice what Paul is praying for here; that they may have a deeper wisdom, a deeper revelation, an understanding that is more enlightened. His focus for the saints is that they have an even greater revelation of the riches of our inheritance. Is that how we pray today brothers and sisters? Do we have our eyes of understanding so focused on the riches of His glory that our prayers for the saints is that their understanding of the riches of His glory simply increases? Very rarely if ever do we see the Apostles pray for an alleviation of circumstances, no we see that the prayers are for a greater revelation of the glory of God and the eternal world to come. It is in this revelation that we are empowered to stand in the midst of any circumstances.

Too often the prayers of the saints are focused on the alleviation of the immediate physical circumstances, not realizing that the true power of those who walk the Kingdom walk, who walk not according to the flesh but according to the Spirit, lies not in an alleviation of circumstances but an elevation of Spiritual awareness. And who gives us this elevation of Spiritual awareness? “The Father of Glory.” The very essence of glory, glory itself. God the Father is not glorious, He is glory itself. Just a glimpse of His glory elevates us high above the circumstances of our lives. We see this when Peter steps out of the boat in the midst of a raging storm. As His eyes are focused upon God, He is elevated above the storm. That which was sent to destroy him, now simply becomes a vehicle to bring glory to God. Right now, in the midst of your circumstances, what would bring God the most glory? We already know that God can calm any raging storm at any time, yet He bids us come up higher for His glories sake. He prepares a table before us in the presence of our enemies. While they rage with all of their fury, we sit in peace in His presence and this confounds the enemy of our souls and brings glory to God, and in this, goodness and mercy follows us all the days of our lives.

    In the midst of my circumstance – what would bring the most glory to God? Good question Brother! Answer: A bigger measure of Christ in ME! This scripture tells me how to get into the kingdom. Acts14:22 Strengthening the souls of the disciples exhorting them to continue in the faith and through many tribulations it behooves us to enter into the kingdom of God.
    It is through this walk, not the avoidance of circumstances, as you say, we serve the highest purpose. And change!!! Grow in Jesus!
    A while back as I noticed the laodecian church all around me was good – rich, did not want the one anothers, and no time for serving others anymore either. I even found my long time Bible Study very affluent and self – absorped – no change! However, I found a group sober living home, where many of the women had served time and now were renewing their mind with God’s word. This program requires them to do so much Bible study in order to stay in the program. I go regularly. I love to sit with the women (I am female) and encourage them in the Lord, study with them, share with them, help them write their testimony, pray for them and they pray for me. Although my “church” did not want me to point out areas of weakness in us – these women WELCOME me – confess to me and ask for help and prayer. I see radical changes in them every time I go and I go often! I love it! I see how Jesus can only heal the broken. If we are not broken – we are rich and have need of nothing – He will not change the believer unless we ask.
    My prayer daily is that I decrease so He can increase! May He be glorified through this and may the entrance to the Kingdom be superadded 2 Peter 2:11 Thank you Brother Frank!
