Rhapsody Of Realities TeeVo Devotional April 28th – God’s Excellent Glory

(The Beauty And Splendour Of God’s Kingdom)

TO THE BIBLE: John 2:11

“This beginning of signs Jesus did in Cana of Galilee, and manifested His glory; and His disciples believed in Him.”

LET’S TALK
“That meeting was glorious,” is something we say all the time after a church service or meeting. But have you ever asked yourself what exactly made the meeting glorious? And what’s glory, anyway?

Well, glory is that which inspires, produces or causes honour. If you give honour, admiration, and respect to someone because of something that happened, that thing had glory, because it inspired you to honour that person. We can say a meeting was glorious because we were inspired to honour, reverence, praise, and worship the Lord; thus, revealing the glory of His Kingdom.

When Jesus turned water to wine and the disciples saw it, they were stunned, and began to trust, honour, and revere Him (John 2:11). We’ve become a part of the glory—the splendour and beauty—in God’s Kingdom, where sickness, defeat, failure and death are alien.

Think about the children of Israel and the promises God made to them. He told them they’d never be defeated by their adversaries. He said to them, “I will put none of the diseases on you which I have brought on the Egyptians. For I am the Lord who heals you” (Exodus 15:26).

Then, in Psalm 91:16, He told them, “You will live a long life and see my saving power” (CEV). These and several other blessings in the Old Testament were addressed to the children of Israel.

Now, imagine the glory we’ve been called into as new creations, living in the Kingdom of God’s dear Son! The Bible says we obtained a better covenant, established upon better promises (Hebrews 8:6).

Think about that! The glory of the New Testament, of our spiritual Kingdom, is the more excellent glory; it supersedes what the children of Israel experienced (2 Corinthians 3:10-11). Hallelujah!

Pray:
Dear Father, I thank you for your glory that’s seen in and revealed through me. I set forth your wonderful deeds, and display your virtues and perfections always and in every place! I experience and manifest your prosperity, grace, wisdom and righteousness in an ever-increasing measure, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
