That's Heavy, Man
The Glory of God is hard to put into words. But God gives glimpses of it all throughout the Bible. The first time the Glory is mentioned is in Genesis, and it’s referring to the wealth of God. So, God’s glory includes His wealth, but it’s much, much more than that.
In the book of Exodus, God’s glory could be seen going before the Israelites in a pillar of cloud by day and in a pillar of fire by night. Habakkuk saw God’s Glory and described it as lightning-like shafts of splendor that streamed from His hands (Habakkuk 3:4, The Amplified Bible).
But the word glory actually means “heavyweight.”God is heavy with everything you could ever want or need. He is so heavy with healing, that if everyone in the whole world believed Him for healing at once, no one would have to wait until tomorrow to be healed because God was tired.
In Acts 5:15, this heavy, weighty Glory was flowing out of Peter. As he walked by, people were healed: “Insomuch that they brought forth the sick into the streets, and laid them on beds and couches, that at the least the shadow of Peter passing by might overshadow some of them.”
It wasn’t Peter’s shadow that healed them. It was that field of Glory that surrounded him. It was the very manifested presence of God.
If you need healing today, expect the Glory. If you need finances, expect the Glory. If you need relationships restored, expect the Glory. It’s heavy man, and it’s all you’ll ever need.
Speak the Word
My God supplies all my needs according to His riches in Glory. (Philippians 4:19)
