But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord.
Dear friend, it is now the eighth month of the year and very fast 2021 is rolling by. I would love to ask you a question: How much better is your life today than yesterday?
The song of many is the victories of yester years. They have no new victories. They have covered no new grounds.
Please hear me dear reader, any man who prides himself only of victories of yesterday is a man of yesterday. He has no relevance in the now. May you not be that kind of man in Jesus’ name.
May I have you know that God is only delighted in men who make conscious efforts to move ahead each day? He spoke in Exodus 14:15 ”And the LORD said unto Moses, Wherefore criest thou unto me? speak unto the children of Israel, that they go forward.” Hebrew 10:38 says ”… but if any man draw back, my soul shall have no pleasure in him.” God is not interested in those who keep on a spot. God is not delighted in those who draw back. His only delight is progress-a new level, a new glory!
Our God is a dynamic God. Every new day He renews His glory. Every new day He does something greater. Many are so used to the ways of yesterday that they do not imagine new things. Many are locked in their expectations that they do not dream bigger dreams.
For as many people who are held back by the victories of yesterday God will give you a new ground to conquer in Jesus name.
Do you know dear friend that the problem of some people is the victory of old?
Isa 43:18-19 is significantly descriptive of what exactly the glory of God can do to a man. Let us examine the spiritual import of Isa 43:18-19 for a moment.
“…I will even make a way in the wilderness…”(Isa 3:19B) I do not know that man or woman who is reading this piece right now and all around you there is thick darkness; no light or any sign that there will soon be light. You have come to the limits of your wits and the end of your wisdom. But the word of God is coming to you today. God is making a way of escape for you. Dear reader, I like you to know that the delight of God is doing the impossible. Impossibility is the specialty of our God.
The book of Mark Chapter 4 recorded the event of the wild storm when Jesus was asleep right at the innermost part of the cabin. Everyone in that ship on that day was afraid. They believed they would die. But Jesus right in the middle of the storm was fast asleep; it took some time to even wake Him. They said to him “Carest not thou that we perish?” That day Jesus did one more new thing. Right in their presence he spoke the word “Peace be still” and the wind obeyed. They exclaimed “What manner of man is this? Even the wind and the storms obey him”.
Listen to me reader: that long-standing problem of your life that you believe would cost you a fortune or even your life savings will disappear at the word of the master.
In Isa 43:19C God says “I will make rivers in the desert”. Please note, NOT “a river” BUT “rivers”. By definition a desert is a place where no plant can grow because there is never water in and around it. As a result of this a desert is always lonely and deserted. Is there anyone reading this piece who is in that condition?
Perhaps you have been avoided by men like a plague. It could be because of a malignant medical condition or a terrible financial situation. It is even possible that family and friends do not pick your calls anymore; maybe you have become so much a burden to them. Hear me dear reader, your glory will speak yet again. Very soon men will come to the glory of your rising. I have the assurance of God to say to you this day “You will not die like this” God, even our God will show up for you. Behold, our God will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it? He will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers our deserts.
2 Cor 3:18 says “But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord”
As the Lord Almighty Himself has spoken, the only course of our lives from now and henceforth shall be from glory unto higher realms of glory in Jesus name.
