Rhapsody of Realities TeeVo Devotional 17th August – More Than A Cloud

(God’s Perfect Glory Is In Your Spirit)

TO THE BIBLE: Romans 8:30 NIV
“And those he predestined, he also called; those he called, he also justified; those he justified, he also glorified.”

When we talk about the glory of God, many think of some physical cloud above their heads. Experiencing God’s glory is much more than being enveloped by a thick cloud; there’s more to it! In the Old Testament, whenever the glory of God appeared, it often manifested as a thick cloud (Exodus 19:9, 16; Ezekiel 10:14).

When Solomon finished building the temple, the Bible says in 2 Chronicles 5:14: “…the priests could not continue ministering because of the cloud; for the glory of the Lord filled the house of God.” That’s awesome, but there’s a higher level of glory for us in Christ!

What they had in the Old testament was good, but you’re not to remain with “the good” and leave out “the best.” What God really wanted was for His glory to be “in you”; His glory “in the building” was only a shadow of things to come and not His best, although some would prefer if they saw some physical “glory cloud.”

Don’t remain at that babyhood stage. In Christianity, what we have is the oneness of our spirit with the Spirit of God. You don’t have to look for the glory outside you; it’s in your spirit!

Apostle Paul, understanding this, declared in Colossians 1:26-27 NASB: “…the mystery which had been hidden from the past ages and generations, but now has been revealed to His saints, to whom God willed to make known what the wealth of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles is, the mystery that is Christ in you, the hope of glory.”

Did you know that the Kingdom of God, with all of His glory, now resides in your heart? The perfect glory of God can never be contained in a room or found on the outside. The perfect glory of God isn’t something that the natural eyes can behold. The perfect glory of God is in your spirit.

Dear Father, thank you for Christ in me is the glory-life. I manifest the perfect glory of God, the power, beauty, and excellence of God, which has been deposited in my spirit, to my world. As I consistently meditate on the Word, the glory of God emanates from my spirit, such that the wonderful deeds and perfections of God are displayed for the world to see, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
