PERMEATING GLORY

Praise his glorious name forever! Let the whole earth be filled with his glory. Amen and amen! Psalm 72:19

A week ago while in prayer petitioning the nations to the Lord, I heard the words “permeating glory”. As I pressed further in prayer, I saw a ripple effect; the Glory of the Lord was moving like superficial oceanic waves into the nations. After prayer I meditated on the words “permeating glory” and discovered the following

• God’s glory is in us in through the Holy Spirit. God’s glory is also His presence. Since the Holy Spirit is always in us, the God’s glory is also always in us. 1 Peter 4:14

• God’s glory changes our environment. Nothing remains the same after an encounter with God’s glory. That means with the Holy Spirit in us, we have the ability to change the environments and situations around us.

• God’s glory enlightens- Where the glory of the Lord permeates, darkness cannot stand. The glory radiates with such debilitating power to darkness. I’m reminded on Moses upon his return from being with the Lord. His face shown so brightly that the Israelites asked him to cover his face before talking to them

• Each of us can have the fullness on God’s glory. We can enhance God’s glory in us by spending time and staying connected with the Giver of this Glory, God through the Holy Spirit. It is through this relationship that we are matured also from glory to glory

What I liked the most about this permeating glory is that it generated revivals. First it starts with our personal revivals. The glory permeates us to expose what needs to be addressed, healed, delivered or uprooted. Then as this permeating glory rises up within us, nations and environments are impacted. People get saved, delivered, healed, restored and set free! From our homes or churches we can release this glory in our neighborhoods, to hospitals, to maternity rooms, to prisons, to the highways and skylines; to nations, Halleluyah!

Imagine that! This is the glory we carry in and with us! So this week ask the Lord to release the permeating glory within you to change environments and situations around you. Hey how about we become the epi-center of this rippling permeating glory! Blog back please

GOD IS TIMELESS. SO ASK FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASES

Some of you may relate. I tend to do most of my reflection and meditation while driving. So I was pondering on God’s promises that had been spoken over my life and concluded that I would commit them to prayer the next morning and start declaring them for the season.

Right there the Holy Spirit said, but God is timeless! And I shook my head nodding NO- why wait for tomorrow to declare the promises. Start now, God is timeless! And off I went. I started by thanking God for His omnipresence. Then the Holy Spirit reminded me that He is the Alpha and Omega. And that God hears our prayers immediately the first time we pray.

•Isaiah 65:24-Before they call I will answer; while they are still speaking I will hear.
•Psalm 34:17- The righteous cry out, and the LORD hears them; He delivers them from all their troubles.
•Deuteronomy 4:7-For what great nation is there that has a god so near to it as is the LORD our God whenever we call on Him?

Then I proceeded with; today is the day of salvation, right now this hour this evening, God can still release my miracles. God is timeless and limitless. Off I went, praying the immediate releases. Lord release now! Let your Angels disperse them now. Let them connect with me now, this evening!

I don’t know about you, it could be that the blessings, miracles, promises and breakthroughs have already been released on earth, already here somewhere waiting for us to call them in.

This week, do not hesitate to ask God for immediate releases. For he says, “In the time of my favor I heard you, and in the day of salvation I helped you.” I tell you, now is the time of God’s favor, now is the day of salvation 2 Corinthians 2:6. Today is the day of salvation, now is the hour of deliverance. Today is the day of healing, now is the hour of restoration and restitution. Every true prophesy is a promise from God. Reflect on past prophesies, pray them in. God is timeless, now is the time of God’s favor, now is the day of our salvation and miracles.

LOOK OUT! THE ANSWER MAY COME FROM AN UNEXPECTED SOURCE

The beauty of God is that He is so relatable in that He loves to show up in our daily life affairs. I am not sure about you; but I am realizing that with time, God seems to show up as we are going about our lives. That’s when He seems to speak and teach louder; at least from my experience.

A few weeks ago, while in Orlando, He gave me one of these practical live teachings. I had just left the fitness room in the hotel and was headed back to my room to get ready for the day. The problem was with the keypad. For some reason, it could not work to open the elevators. So, knowing my dilemma, as I left the gym, I prayed, “Lord please let someone exit the elevator so that I access it as they leave. So, I stood by the elevator for about a minute facing and looking straight at the elevator. A minute later, I saw a lady walking from my left side; she keyed the elevator and we both got in.

I smiled and exclaimed; wow, Lord you have just taught me a lesson at 6:20 am in the morning. You see, the Lord answered my prayer. All I needed was the elevator door to be opened. It did not matter to God how it got opened! While I stood, and stared at the elevator for someone to get off it; the Lord instead, brought the answer through a totally unexpected means; the lady from by left with her morning coffee!

Isaiah 55:8-9
For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, “declares the Lord. “As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts. This scripture came to mind as I was reflecting on the elevator lesson this morning; hopefully the following will help you throughout the week, that:
1)God hears all prayers; no prayer is too small or too big or irrelevant for Him to respond to.
2)Once we have prayed and petitioned God, leave the issue to Him; God knows how He will answer us.
3)Do not rationalize how the answer should come. It is not up to us to figure out how God will answer the prayer.
4)God may not respond exactly how we want the answer to come
5)Stay open to whichever way; means or person God will us to bring the answer.
6)Look out, God may bring the answer from a totally different direction or person; He may bring the answer through an unexpected source. 1 Corinthians 1:25

STAYING CURRENT

This millennial life seems to be moving so fast that to a level, we are constantly left questioning what to do next or tomorrow. Although we may know what’s happening now, there is also an urgency to know what will happen next. This continuous concern about the future may lead to anxiety and restlessness to creep in. Yet it is from here too that we are reminded of the always present God. The 1 AM. Determine to stay current with Him.

In Acts 17:28, we are reminded that in God we live and move and have our being. This means The ever-present I AM is always available for the currently as well as being present for the future. God is the antidote of every negative experience, that which you do not have. Yet also, the One who increases what you currently have in your hands.

I encourage you STAY IN THE PRESENT WITH GOD this week and throughout the year. Our God is the EVER-PRESENT help in times of need. Be anxious for nothing in everything, let your needs known to God
• If sick the AM is present to heal
• In lack, the AM is present to provide and multiply
• In fear, the AM is present to rescue and protect
• If tired and weak, the AM is our strength and hope
• If undecided and unsure, the Am is present to provide guidance and counsel

In prayer, this week stay current with God and call on the God of the situation you are in. Most of the time I rehearse and remind God What He is to that situation. Not that God does not know, but there is power in speaking the Word of God back to Him because God stands by His Word to perform it. Stay current with God, He is our ever-present deliverer, He is our daily bread of life, He is our present Rock in Whom we firmly stand. Stay current for every area of your life and family. Remind God of the promise related to that family issue. He is the AM, the I AM right here now, He will be right there tomorrow and He will right there ten years from now.
