Day 225 –
You can’t miss the Glory of God.
Ezekiel 1:28 “Like the appearance of a rainbow in the clouds on a rainy day, so was the radiance around him. This was the appearance of the likeness of the glory of the Lord. When I saw it, I fell facedown, and I heard the voice of one speaking.”
How will I know it’s Him? This is the question of the hour. When Jesus comes back will you know it’s Him? When the Lord appears to you will you recognize Him? Yet their’s no mistaking the Glory of God.
Today alone I’ve seen 2 of God’s most magnificent sites and both had me reflecting on God’s undeniable Glory.
This morning as I started out my run, a ball of light shot through the trees. My eyes searched, my feet ran, my heart pounded, and no source of this light was in site. A few steps later I was out from under the trees and another ball of light, looking more like a star, shot across the sky. There was scurrying and discussion among other runners. One turning quickly declaring them to be shooting stars, but actually what was being seen was the Perseid Meteor shower.
Is this what it will be like when Jesus comes back? Not being able to peel my eyes from the sky, hoping and praying God would let me see more, but others declaring it’s something that it’s not?!
No! When Jesus comes back it won’t be like a ball of light, a quick and sudden light, no His Glory will shine across the sky and light up the whole world for all eyes to see.
His Glory will be like the brightest Rainbow, stopping me in my tracks, dropping me to my knees in worship before Him. With the meteor shower starting off my day, what could be even better, but to close it out with the brightest Rainbow ever seen. The rainbow, God’s covenant to us, pushing through the storm, bright and magnificent; just like His Glory, unable to be mistaken, at the end of every storm in our life.
The rainbow, the shooting star, the butterfly, the blooming flower, the oncoming thunder storm, the meteor shower……just like these, we can’t miss Jesus in this thing we call our life. And oh how majestic He will be when He comes back riding across the sky. He will be brighter than the brightest meteor shower and more vibrant than the most amazing rainbow. His Glory will abound! There’s no way to miss it.
