Taking a Drink of Glory

Jesus said to her, “Didn’t I tell you that if you believed you would see the glory of God?” – John 11:40 

This was the comment Jesus made to Martha right before he brought her brother, Lazarus, back to life. I love this question. Those words stir up such a hopeful anticipation down in my soul. And that hope wells up to the surface, it pushes through my lack of faith. It brings my doubting Thomas tendency right down to its knees…and for the briefest of moments my soul grabs hold of that glory.  I cup it in my hands and take a drink. It fills me up, a weary traveler who is witnessing the most brilliant sunrise…one you wish would stay stretched across the morning sky forever…GLORY!

I started writing this post this morning while listening to Set a Fire. “Set a fire down in my soul that I can’t contain that I can’t control. I want more of you, God.” It’s the prayer on my heart today.

Lord, remove any stones in front of ours hearts today and bring what’s dead to life again. Give us more of You. More overflows. More sunrises. More moments and days and years and seasons of believing and seeing Your glory on fire in our lives and in the lives all around us.

PS…After writing this post, I took my son to school. On the drive back home I heard this new song from Passion Band, Remember. Thank you for the reminder, Lord!
