Show Me Your Glory 5-Day Devotional
Published on 21 July 2023
The Lord replied to Moses, “I will indeed do what you have asked, for I look favorably on you, and I know you by name.” Moses responded, “Then show me your glorious presence.” The Lord replied, “I will make all my goodness pass before you, and I will call out my name, Yahweh, before you. For I will show mercy to anyone I choose, and I will show compassion to anyone I choose. But you may not look directly at my face, for no one may see me and live.” The Lord continued, “Look, stand near me on this rock. As my glorious presence passes by, I will hide you in the crevice of the rock and cover you with my hand until I have passed by. Then I will remove my hand and let you see me from behind. But my face will not be seen.”
This incredible encounter that Moses had with God has inspired so many over the years and has been our ongoing prayer at Planetshakers:
“Show us Your glory!”
What an incredible moment when all of God’s goodness passed by Moses, yet God still had to cover him with His hand. Surely this is because God’s glory and goodness is too much for our human bodies to take in. If this is the case, then the magnitude of God’s glory and goodness is awesome! It can overwhelm and overpower anything that we could ever face here on Earth.
When Jesus walked the streets of Jerusalem and entered the villages, He reflected and demonstrated God’s goodness and glory. Every obstacle that stood in His way was overcome. He walked on water, calmed the storm, healed every disease and even miraculously multiplied food. He unveiled blind eyes, healed the lame, opened deaf ears and raised the dead. There are no words to adequately articulate how amazing our God is. When He reveals His glory to us, our lives are forever changed!
Today I want to see Your glory. I want to experience Your goodness. I want to be that close friend and for our relationship to be like the one You had with Moses. I want to talk to You face to face and I want Your Presence to be with me always. I make a new commitment today to pursue You and to know You, and not to go anywhere without You. I love You Lord.
In Jesus’ Name I pray,
