Verse Of The Day : For the earth shall be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the LORD, as the waters cover the sea. Habakkuk 2:14 Kjv
Thought of The Day : Where God is, glory naturally appears; and man is created to declare the glory of God.
LISTEN : The glory of God is what announces the power of God. Where God is, dwells his glory. The Greek word translated glory is, kâbôd. Meaning – honour, weight, glorious, riches, dignity, splendour, reputation, reverence and abundance. The glory of God speaks of His reputation, dignity, splendour, riches, and His unmatchable greatness. This part of God is what the world should know. They should know how great, weighty and glorious God is. With Him are riches, fame, long life, honour, wisdom, strength, knowledge, glory; the list goes on and on. Our verse of the day, speaks of the earth being filled with the knowledge of the glory of God. That is, everyone needs to know God for himself. Until you know God for yourself you’re still roaming the earth aimlessly no matter how ‘successful’ you seem. You must have the knowledge of who God is and have a personal experience and relationship with Him. You must confess His glory, honour, dignity, reputation and revere Him as the only true God. When you are empty of personal relationship with God you’re empty of real life. (John 5:28-29). God should be at the centre of our homes, marriages, businesses, relationships, etc. Everything around us should feel the weight of God’s glory. Beloved, let’s strive to make the knowledge of God’s glory known to the world and save humanity from destruction. The Bible says, “The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God.” (Psalms 9:17). But when we spread the knowledge of God’s glory, lots of people would be saved. Be wise!
What Should We Do With This Message?
1. Tell the world and everyone you see about Jesus Christ.
2. Wherever you go, determine to speak of the gospel and persuade people to accept it.
3. Always talk about the greatness of God when opportunity presents itself.
4. Pray for God to touch people’s heart and direct them toward himself.

Prayer : Dear Lord, I thank You for Your words today. Help me to touch lives around the world with Your word, in Jesus ‘name, amen!
A Word Of Blessing : It is well with you. May the weight of God’s glory fill your life, your home and the world around you, in Jesus ‘ name, amen!
Reflection : When you’re empty of personal relationship with God, you’re empty of real life.
Quote : “No matter the amount of success recorded, until there’s personal experience and relationship with God, you just only succeeded in roaming the earth aimlessly.”
