It’s a wonderful day to be a child of God. Do you realize how blessed you are? In spite of the troubles, heartaches and pains, the Lord has always been there to watch over us. Do you know that the Lord is so good? I mean so good. Even when you were deep in sin, His goodness allowed Him to surround us with unconditional love. When the enemy tried to prove our guilt, it was the Lord who pleaded our case. Have you noticed how far the Lord has brought you? Just think about the things you were doing before you committed yourself to His will. Think about the places you visited regularly, or the people you hung around. God is so good to us. Knowing how ungrateful we can be at times, He still continuously blesses us. Do you appreciate the Lord this morning? Are you glad that there is life still in your body? Are you allowing anger and bitterness to suck the life out of your days?
This morning, I am commissioned to come and minister to you. My friend, You Don’t Know My Story, What You See Is God’s Glory! So often in our lives, we meet people who applaud us for where we are in our lives. Every time you see them, (s)he always wants you to sing a song, tell a joke, pray a prayer, preach a sermon, or share your testimony. While that is fine, many people were not around when you were going through your breakdowns and let-downs. What they see today is the glory of God upon you. Many people do not know the price you have paid for the anointing you display. They do not understand how/why you shout and praise God all the time. The Bible declares in Psalms 46:1 – God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. You Don’t Know My Story, What You See Is God’s Glory! You must beware of people who try to come in your life after you have endured testing and trying. You must be careful with who you allow to speak into your ear. It was the Lord who brought you through the ‘hell’ in your life.
My brother, my sister, its not that you are arrogant or acting holier than someone else. Its not that you think others are beneath you. But you have been through enough in your life to declare that you are not going back there anymore. The Bible declares in Psalms 40:2 – He brought me up also out of an horrible pit, out of the miry clay, and set my feet upon a rock, and established my goings. The passion people see in your eyes is the glory of God. The love you display to everyone is the glory of God. The favor you enjoy in your life is the glory of God. You Don’t Know My Story, What You See Is God’s Glory! Stop apologizing because God is using you. There was a refining process God took you through. Stop allowing people to discourage what the Lord has spoken in your life. What man does not understand, man questions and judges. Beloved, God brought you so that He could use you for this time. Do not go back in what the Lord took you out of. Live free in the Lord. There’s a story to compliment God’s glory. Prayer for Today: Father, I want to thank you for everything you brought me out of. I have a story behind the glory. I honor you today. In Jesus’ name … Amen!
