July 29, 2019 weight of Glory

Standard

Good morning, DearHeart.

When I was a young mother I was making my bed one morning, standing between the wall and the bed, placing the pillows, when I felt the WEIGHT of God’s glory on me so heavy that I could hardly breathe. It was the first time I had ever physically felt His power and His presence so strong and so undeniable that I couldn’t move. I had been praying for years, and had been in prayer that morning for someone I dearly loved to change to fit who I wanted them to be. I was praying wrong, yet thought I was right. And, God showed up.

He set His foot down on my life. His authority stepped into my request and the forces of darkness had to back up and back out. In my efforts to fix them, I was dealing with worry and frustrations and depressions from which I couldn’t see a way around or a way through. Yet, in that moment, He revealed that the loved one was His project and not mine. My focus had to stay on MY relationship with my Savior, and the work of the Holy Spirit through me and through others would handle the details of changing the hearts of the other.

I’ve learned (sometimes, I forget and have to be reminded!) to stay in my lane, focus on the hearts within my realm…my own heart.

The experience changed everything about how I live, and breathe, and move in Christ. I had been praying, but with no real hope that the relationship would or could change. That same GLORY that manifested in me that morning is the same Glory promised and delivered to every believer.

Have you felt the weight of His presence?

“And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one: I in them, and thou in me, that they may be made perfect in one; and that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast loved me.” John 17:22-23 KJV

Wake up.

Pray. Feel His Glory.

Go.
