On day 21 we learned about the weight of God’s glory, and His importance. But God’s glory also gives Him unsurpassed beauty. God’s Majestic Glory is often described as a cloud, lightning, fire, and smoke. He is so pure and dazzling that humankind can’t look upon it unprotected. The overwhelming brightness of Jesus’s glory blinded Saul on the road to Damascus. When Moses asked to see God’s glory God told him he couldn’t look upon His face and live.
We have a very weak sense of God’s beauty, but we were created to crave it. Most of the time instead of drawing closer the magnificent creator we satisfy this longing by chasing after His creation. There is nothing in creation that comes anywhere close to the Majestic Glory of God. When we come anywhere close to it, it changes us. It is so attractive and worthwhile that everything else pales in comparison to it.
“One thing have I asked of the LORD, that will I seek after: that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to gaze upon the beauty of the LORD and to inquire in His temple.”
Genesis 33:20-2,2 Job 37:22, Psalm 93:1, Isaiah 28:5, Psalm 96:6, Exodus 40:34-35, Psalm 104:1, Psalm 145:5, Psalm 145:12, Isaiah 42:8, Psalm 33:17, Zechariah 9:17, 2 Corinthians 3:17-18, Psalm 24:7-10, Exodus 34:29-35
When you spend time with Naddir Kavod, the name scripture gives God as Majestic Glory, how does it affect you?
Repent of only seeking beauty in God’s creation and not seeking Naddir Kavod, the most splendid of all beauty.
Pray and ask the Lord to show you His Majestic Glory.
Listen and think about Naddir Kavod and the promise that the Holy Spirit will transform us more and more like Him.
Meditate and ask the Holy Spirit how you can help others to see the beauty of God. What would that look like?
