REPOSITIONING FOR GREATER GLORY (2)
And the LORD said, “Here is a place by Me, and you shall stand on the rock. “So it shall be, while My glory passes by, that I will put you in the cleft of the rock, and will cover you with My hand while I pass by.” (Exodus 33:21-22 NKJV)
When Moses asked God to show him His full glory, God was willing to reveal as much of His glory that Moses could stand in the flesh if he was willing to reposition himself. Likewise, you cannot see or experience God’s glory while you are far away from God. If you want to see God’s glory in a greater dimension, you need to reposition yourself, draw nearer to God.
First, God demanded that Moses draw closer to a place by His side where he would be able to see His glory clearer and better, in a new and unprecedented dimension. We are expected to follow Jesus closely, allowing nothing to come between us and Christ. Sadly, many believers today are following Jesus and beholding His glory from a far distance. No wonder they are not seeing, experiencing, reflecting and manifesting God’s glory to the world as they should.
Second, in response to Moses’ passionate prayer to see God’s full glory, God also demanded of Him to change the foundation or ground on which he was standing. We are not seeing God’s glory in a greater dimension today because we are not standing firm on ‘the spiritual rock.’ The Word of God is the only sure foundation or rock upon which you must build your life, home, relationships, career, business or ministry if you truly desire to experience and manifest God’s glory.
Lastly, for Moses to experience the glory of God in a greater and unprecedented dimension, he must be willing to be hidden in the cleft of the rock. It is only God that must be seen when He descended upon the rock in His majesty. No flesh must glory in God’s presence (1 Cor. 1:29). It is only as you abide in Christ, in His love, teaching or doctrine that you can see, experience and manifest God’s glory increasingly. God is calling you today to die to yourself, deny yourself and refuse to gratify the lusts, desires and passions of the flesh, so that you might see, experience and manifest His glory in an unprecedented dimension. Can you stand to be hidden completely in ‘the Rock’ – Christ? That is what it takes to see, experience and manifest the glory of God in an unusual and unprecedented dimension.
Liberation thought: I am moving from glory to glory

Oh God position me for your GLORY. Let your GLORY be reflect upon me. Let my glory shine.
Oh God of my oracle take back my lost glory for me. Let every flesh that want to consume my glory be consumed by FIRE
Today I receive more grace to abide and continue in Christ
