One of my favorite songs is “For Your Glory” by Tasha Cobbs Leonard. For me, this song is a reminder that wherever God is, is where I desperately want to be – where I desperately need to be.
Being in God’s presence, being in His will, going where He calls us to go, sounds scary and uncomfortable, but it’s exactly why we were created. In God’s presence, there is peace, joy and miracles. It’s where solutions to problems, promotions and discernment wait. It’s where we get to commune with Him and display His glory.
“I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.
Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever! Amen.” (Ephesians 3:16-21 NIV)
God loves us beyond measure, and He gives us an earthly and eternal life that is “abundantly above” anything we can imagine. How wonderful it is that He is who we call Father, who we pray to, who we read about, who we see in the simple and difficult, who created us and the world around us?
Knowing this, how can we not want to be where God is, and do what He calls us to do?
“So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.” (1 Corinthians 10:31 NIV)
