THE GLORY OF GOD

Dag Heward-Mills

READ: 2 Chronicles 5:1-14

..the priests could not stand to minister by reason of the cloud: for the glory of the LORD had filled the house of God.

2 Chronicles 5:14

As you can see in this account, while the people offered sacrifice, the glory of God filled the temple. Do you want to see the glory of God in your life? Then do not shy away from the sacrifice that God has placed before you.

A minister who has the glory of God on his life has often paid the price of sacrifice.

I have noticed that there is no successful minister who does not have a story of sufferings and difficulties that he has been through on behalf of the Lord.

Recently, a visiting minister whose ministry I knew little about, came to speak in our church. As he shared his life’s testimony, I marvelled at how this principle is played out in everyone’s life. He had been through many things. He had gone hungry on many occasions; he had encouraged his wife on several occasions. He had been without money and food many times. This man is now a very successful minister in the country where he lives. The story is the same.

Solomon made many sacrifices to the Lord. Suddenly, the glory of God filled the temple, and no one could stand to minister. God was moved by the sacrifice. God is still moved by your sacrifice. There is sacrifice behind the glory of God.
