Something greater is happening and I don’t want you to miss out!
You and I are living in a time like no other. It’s true in spiritual matters as well as this natural world. Knowledge and technology are growing and changing faster than ever before. By the time a new phone or computer is being sold on the market, newer, better technology is being developed that makes it obsolete.
All these changes and improvements are not a bad thing. In fact, they can be a very good thing when they are embraced and used correctly.
Throughout all of history there has never been a time like this spiritually either. God is moving and pouring out His glory in greater ways, and I don’t want you to miss out on His presence in your life.
One of my favorite verses from the writings of the Apostle Paul has always been Ephesians 2:7 where he says, “That in the ages to come he [God] might show the exceeding riches of his grace in his kindness toward us through Christ Jesus.”
And notice Paul says that it’s reserved for the “ages to come.”
In other words, he’s saying that there will be a generation beyond his that will experience this like no other generation has ever seen.
I truly believe Paul was seeing our generation in the spirit-realm! The Amplified Bible says God is going to demonstrate His, “Immeasurable, limitless, surpassing riches of His free grace, His unmerited favor in His kindness and goodness,” to this future generation!
The Holy Spirit has spoken to my heart and said we have entered into what he referred to as THE GREATER GLORY.
What is this “glory” that He’s talking about? If you study the Bible closely, you’ll discover that the “glory” is manifested as the presence of God, the power of God, and the goodness of God.
Even though people, in both the Old Testament and those who lived at the time of the birth of the New Testament Church, saw and experienced the “glory”—but it was nothing like what you and I are about to see.
God is always about increasing and doing more. Even Jesus said, speaking of future believers, “They will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father” (John 14:12).
I truly believe we are the generation God has been waiting for. We’re that FUTURE GENERATION that Paul spoke about in Ephesians and Hosea saw in the spirit. Peering into the future, the prophet Hosea declared, “In the last days, they will tremble in awe of the Lord and of his goodness” (Hosea 3:5).
Who is the “they” that Hosea said “will tremble in awe?” They are people far from God! The manifested goodness of God is one of the major ways in which God will get the attention of unbelievers in the last days.
His goodness will be poured upon His people to such a degree that no one will be able to deny that our God is indeed a good God!
That’s exactly what He did when His people were in captivity to Babylon.
The psalmist described this in Psalm 126:2. After God’s power delivered the people of Israel, “… then said they among the heathen, The Lord hath done great things for them…” In The Message version, it says that they were “the talk of the nation.” The heathen were saying, “God was wonderful to them.”
No one believed that God’s people would ever be delivered from Babylon—it was a horrible captivity. The people had become so distraught and hopeless that they had lost their songs of joy and their “harps were hanging in the willow trees” (Psalm 137:2).
The people of Babylon rejoiced in Israel’s captivity and it looked as though evil had triumphed over good and nothing and no one could ever change it. But God came through and it was such a marvelous deliverance that even the heathen had to stand back and declare that God had done great things for His people.
It was a marvelous display of His presence, His power, and His goodness! And now, our generation is about to see it even GREATER!
No matter what you may be facing, no matter how impossible your dream may seem, God’s greater glory is going to deliver you and cause you to stand victorious! And all the people who said it would never happen, your friends that told you to just give up and move on, your family that just looked at you odd—they will all say in awe, “God has been wonderful to you!”
Isaiah 30:18 says in The Message paraphrase, “God’s not finished. He’s waiting around to be gracious to you …” And I believe that we are the generation that God has been waiting for!
Get up every day with this hope in your heart. Get up declaring, “This is my time for the greater glory—this is my time to experience greater manifestations of God’s presence, God’s power, and God’s goodness, in Jesus’ name.”
Begin to declare it! Begin to expect it!
