As I look into this greater weight of glory this season, I am continually checked by the Holy Spirit that ‘meekness is required and humility is a must’. Manifesting this greater weight of glory will truly demand selfless souls. We are not striving to show off ourselves. We are not seeking our own glory. John 8:50. We live with the awareness that humanity tends to hero worship and self adulation. All that is in the world, the desires of the flesh and the desires of the eyes and pride in possessions (accomplishments) is not of the Father and are all passing away. We can not lose sight of this and allow ourselves to be lured into any deception that says “by the might of my hand”.
When Moses asked to see the glory of God it was for the purpose of understanding the nature and character of God. We must always guard our motivation when seeking the promises of God. Why do I really want this? Ephesians 1:12 reminds us "so that we who were the first to hope in Christ might be to the praise of his glory."
Paul wrote about momentary light afflictions working a greater weight of glory. I see the season that we have left as one of great pruning in the church for the purposes of bringing forth this greater fruit in all righteousness. Pauls prayer in chapter one of Philippians is the desire for the church to be increasing in love with knowledge and all discernment, so that they are able to approve things that are excellent, to be pure and blameless and filled with the fruits of righteousness that come through Jesus Christ and always bring glory and praise to God.
To manifest a greater weight of glory will require a great weight of abiding, abounding love. Every thought, every word and every deed must be saturated with the pureness of God’s love and righteousness. It is only with and in this Spirit that we can hope to see God work mightily in and through us.
Let us purpose in this season to lay aside all the things that have entangled us, get our eyes off of us and our issues and move into Him as never before for the purpose of carrying His presence and manifesting this greater weight of glory.
