Did you know that you are a carrier of the Glory?
What is the weight of this verse to you?
When you are at your best you are displaying God’s glory. This is an act of worship. It extends beyond Sunday songs. It is where you realize you are an instrument of Heaven ready to be used by the Master Musician himself.
And so, dear brothers and sisters, I plead with you to give your bodies to God because of all he has done for you. Let them be a living and holy sacrifice—the kind he will find acceptable. This is truly the way to worship him.
Romans 12:1 NLT
Being a living sacrifice means being a vessel fit for use in the Kingdom of God. When I think of a vessel I think of somthing being used to transport from one place to another. If I want my goods to arrive safely so they can be used for their intended purpose I will not place them in just any old thing.
Carriers of the glory walk like they know who they are.
But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a dedicated nation, [God’s] own purchased, special people, that you may set forth the wonderful deeds and display the virtues and perfections of Him Who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light. [Exod. 19:5, 6.]
1 Peter 2:9 AMPC
Operate from the glory zone asking God, “how do you want to get the glory out of me? I’m ready to see what you have placed on the inside manifested on the outside.”
The glory zone is when you are at your best and you feel most alive. It is the thing your mind tries to discourage you from doing, fearing you may go into over kill. What made you want to reign in being at your best at any given moment? Fear, stress, worry? These are robbers of the glory.
In the glory zone I run with purpose. Because of the joy I have I am constantly refreshed instead of tired.
Don’t you know that as a carrier you are unique? Did you know that as a carrier you are beautiful? Did you know you are God’s workmanship, fit for good use?
I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well.
Psalms 139:14 KJV
When I think of the glory zone I think of thrive. There is a certain capacity God has created us for and anytime we are carrying less than what we were created for (or what we not created for) we get weary. The challenge is to work in the glory zone even when life is throwing blows that would cause us to slow down.
How do we find strength to keep running? Thankfully God foresaw theses days and declared:
I will refresh those who are weary and will satisfy with food everyone who is weak from hunger.
Jeremiah 31:25 GNT
