Jesus said to her, “Did I not tell you that if you believed you would see the glory of God?”
When most people think about the glory of God, they picture an all encompassing brightness or light that fills up whatever room or area they’re in. While that is what’s known in the Hebrew language as the Shekinah glory, the glory of God can be experienced in many different ways. For example, the Bible doesn’t say that when Jesus raised Lazarus that there was a bright light that shined all around them at that moment. But Jesus did say that they would ‘see’ the glory of God. What you need to realize is that any time God’s power is on display, whether it be through the miraculous or by someone simply showing God’s love to the person who’s down and out, His glory is manifested. Ask anyone who’s ever been shown God’s love through a simple physical act if they didn’t experience a touch of His glory. Many people get tripped up over this because they have mindset that ‘seeing is believing’. This directly contradicts what Jesus said…He said if you believed, you would see. God’s glory is manifested and shown whenever someone chooses to operate according to their faith. Whether it be mowing your elderly neighbors grass, or raising someone up out of a hospital bed, anytime that His goodness is walked out for the benefit of those who need His touch, the Lord’s glory is on display. Don’t fall into the trap that says unless something supernatural occurs, God’s glory wasn’t shown. Too many forsake the spiritual because they chase after the supernatural. You a vessel full of the glory of God, all you have to do is have the faith to let it out. – Love and Blessings, Pastor Jeff.
