Exodus 33:18 – “I beseech thee, show me thy glory.”
Exodus 34:6,7 – “The Lord passed before him, and proclaimed, ‘The Lord, The Lord God, merciful and gracious, longsuffering, and abundant in goodness and truth, Keeping mercy for thousands, forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin.”‘
WHAT IS THE SINGLE, MOST OUTSTANDING THING ABOUT GOD? WHAT’S HIS MOST IMPORTANT CHARACTERISTIC?
SOME WOULD SAY IT’S HIS POWER – OTHERS, HIS HOLINESS. BUT GOD HIMSELF WOULD GIVE A DIFFERENT ANSWER.
THE WORD “GLORY” IN EXODUS 33 COULD LITERALLY BE TRANSLATED “HEAVY WEIGHT.” IT REFERS TO THE HEAVIEST, BIGGEST, GRANDEST, THING ABOUT SOMEONE.
WHEN MOSES ASKED GOD TO SHOW HIM THE GRANDEST THING ABOUT HIMSELF, GOD SHOWED HIM HIS MERCY.
THAT MEANS IF WE ARE TO IMITATE GOD WE MUST MAJOR IN MERCY TOO. MERCY, GOODNESS, FORGIVENESS AND COMPASSION MUST MARK OUR BEHAVIOR ABOVE ALL ELSE.
I MAJOR ON MERCY SO OTHERS WILL SEE THE GLORY OF GOD IN ME.
Ephesians 5:1 – “Therefore be imitators of God (copy Him and follow His example), as well-beloved children (imitate their father). “
Matthew 6:24,25 – “Ye cannot serve God and mammon. Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life.”
WE SERVE OUR THOUGHTS!
ISAIAH 55 SAYS FOR US TO FORSAKE OUR THOUGHTS, AND BY THE WORD, TAKE GOD’S THOUGHTS.
THATS WHY 2 CORINTHIANS 10:5 SAYS TO CAST OUT THOUGHTS THAT CHALLENGE THE WORD AND BRING INTO CAPTIVITY EVERY THOUGHT TO THE OBEDIENCE OF CHRIST.
I CLAIM DELIVERANCE FROM MY PROBLEMS TODAY?
MY CIRCUMSTANCES ARE CHANGING BECAUSE I AM SHIFTING FROM WRONG TO RIGHT THINKING.
