Sermon Series: Show Me Your Glory! 

Title: Show Me Your Glory!

Moses said, “Please show me your glory.” Exodus 33:18

Foundation:

Once upon a time there lived a man named Moses! Etc…

Yet one of the most ostentatious, outrageous, audacious requests ever made came via the mouth of this great emancipator and prophet Moses.

Moses said, “Please show me your glory.” Exodus 33:18

SHOW ME YOUR GLORY!

What a request!

“I hear you God but now I want to see you!”

What does that mean?

The glory of God is the manifest presence of God.

The glory of God is the beauty of God.

The glory of God is the output of God.

The glory of God is the architecture of God. The glory of God is the visible, tangible, measurable byproduct of God’s grace, love and creative nature.

The glory is God showing up, not with something, not with a touch or a blessing or even a breakthrough; the glory is God showing up and showing off with everything!!!

The glory is the fullness and fulfillment; faith and faithfulness, fruit and fruitfulness; the break in, break out and the breakthrough!

Show me your glory goes beyond beyond receiving blessings. Show me your glory equips you to live a blessed life!

Here it is;

Moses did not ask for a new chariot, a bigger tent, or a new rod.

He asked for one thing; show me your glory.

Here’s the question….

What are you asking God for?

Does it matter?

Absolutely!

What if I tell you, your vertical request determines your horizontal reality.

What?

Your vertical life is the byproduct of God’s saving grace.

Your horizontal life, to a great degree, is the byproduct of what you pray for?

You are who God says you are.

You live what you pray for.

Here’s the proof!

This is the reason I urge you to boldly believe for whatever you ask for in prayer—be convinced that you have received it and it will be yours. Matt 11:24

Matthew 21:22  And whatever you ask in prayer, you will receive, if you have faith.”

John 15:7 If you abide in me, and my words abide in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you.

John 14:13-14 Whatever you ask in my name, this I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If you ask me anything in my name, I will do it.

1 John 5:14 And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he hears us:

 

 

What are you asking God for?

Our churches and communities stand filled with people that when asked what do you want from God, they respond by limiting God to chariots, tents and rods.

I want a new car. (chariot)

I want a bigger house.(tent)

I want a new job. (rod)

While God does provide our needs and the desires of our hearts, our prayers do speak to our level of faith and maturity.

James 4:3 You ask and do not receive, because you ask wrongly, to spend it on your passions.

What are you asking God for?

In other words, ask God for what you need and he will take care of what you want!

The need is more important than the want!

Don’t ask God for a car if you don’t have a drivers license.

Don’t ask God for a Tesla if you don’t know how to drive.

Don’t ask God for a new relationship if you are still bleeding from the breakup of your previous relationship.

Don’t ask God for influence if you lack integrity.

Don’t ask God for millions if you can’t handle thousands.

Don’t ask God for a house if you can’t manage your apartment.

What are you asking God for?

What you ask God for today will determine how you live life tomorrow!

Moses-SHOW ME YOUR GLORY!

Are you ready for a radical shift in your life?

Are you ready to see what you have never seen before?

Are you ready to occupy the very area hell fought to keep you of?

Are you ready to inhabit ALL of God’s promises!

Are you ready to shine like never before?

Are you ready to live a life where you no longer get stuck?

Ask God to show you His glory!

If you are ready then put a smile on your face and make the prayer Moses made, because when you make that prayer all of the aforementioned outcomes have no choice but to become your reality!

Because when the glory of God becomes your priority, when the glory of God becomes your heart’s desire, when the glory of God drives you; EVERYTHING CHANGES!

TYN; Do it!

Make that prayer; SHOW ME YOUR GLORY!

Do you know what just prayed!

*1 Show me your glory means-Fill my houses!

So that the priests could not stand to minister because of the cloud, for the glory of the LORD filled the house of God. 2 Chronicles 5:14

When you pray “Show me your glory you are asking God to fill your house =your body 1 Corinthians 3:16 and your house, your family!

The glory doesn’t caress, graze, slightly touch, the glory fills!

And when the glory fills it limits access.

When the glory fills, demons can’t come in!

When the glory fills, devils are kicked out!

When the glory fills, chains are broken!

When the glory fills, darkness flees!

Get ready!

After today, your temple, your house, your family will no longer be filed with drama, anxiety, fear, illness, generational curses, poverty, addiction, trauma, lies, brokenness or excuses!

I feel the Lord.

Get ready!

God’s glory is about to fill your house!

God’s glory is about to fill your temple! 

God’s glory is about to fill your family!

Somebody shout; SHOW ME YOUR GLORY! 

Wait!

What if when we make that prayer, that life altering, destiny launching, Christ exalting request it doesn’t just prompt your body, your mind, your house and family to be filled but if the glory of God fills Sacramento? 

What if the glory of God fills California?

What if the glory of God fills America?

What if the glory of God fills the nations? 

What, is that possible?

It’s not only possible. 

It’s one of God’s promises! 

Habakkuk 2:14  For the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord as the waters cover the sea.

Hey CNN,
Hey FOXNews,
Hey Univison,
You covered Covid, you covered political unrest, you covered the war in Ukraine, well,  get ready! 
 
Get ready to cover this; THE HEADLINE; 
The glory of God fills the earth! 
 
Isaiah 6:3
And one called to another and said: “Holy, holy, holy is the Lord of hosts; the whole earth is full of his glory!”
 
Sacramento will be filled with glory of God!
California will be filled with the glory of God!
America will be filled with glory of God!
Our children and our children’s children will be filled with glory of God! 
 
Why, because God promises to always answer this prayer request; SHOW ME YOUR GLORY! 

*2 Show me your glory means “God has your back!

“Then your salvation will come like the dawn, and your wounds will quickly heal. Your godliness will lead you forward, and the glory of the LORD will protect you from behind.        Isaiah 58:8

When the glory of God is what you long  for; your salvation will come like the dawn, which means everything in your life requiring salvation will be saved!

Get ready for seeing your entire family saved. Get ready to see your friends saved.

Get ready to see the flowers on your Facebook Instagram Twitter, Tik Tok, and YouTube accounts saved

Get ready to see your haters saved.

Get ready to see more people saved than ever before in human history!

When the glory of God is what you pray for; your physical, mental, emotional, spiritual, relational wounds will quickly heal.

There is still healing in the name of Jesus. There is still healing in the finished work of Christ.

1 Peter 2:24

When the glory of God is what you stand for; your godliness will lead, guide, push you forward.

Holiness still matters!

1 Peter 1:16

When the glory of God is what you live for; His glory will protect you from behind!

(Illustrate)

God has your back!

Your past can’t touch because God has your back!

Your old sins can’t harm you because God has your back.

The old you can’t even get close to you because God has your back.

The gates of hell will not prevail against you because God has your back!

I dare you to open your mouth and declare;

I am saved.

I am delivered.

I am healed.

And the glory of God protects me from behind!

God has my back!

If you believe it, praise like it!

Praise like God’s glory protects you.

Shout like God’s glory protects you.

Etc..

*3 Show Me Your Glory Means Stagnation is impossible, growth is inevitable and increase unstoppable!

The future glory of this Temple will be greater than its past glory, says the LORD of Heaven’s Armies. And in this place I will bring peace. I, the LORD of Heaven’s Armies, have spoken!” Haggai 2:9

So all of us who have had that veil removed can see and reflect the glory of the Lord. And the Lord—who is the Spirit—makes us more and more like him as we are changed into his glorious image. 2 Corinthians 3:18

Conclusion:

What is God’s glory?

A better query resides in the following; not what but rather “Who” is God’s glory?

Jesus is the Glory of God!!

The Son radiates God’s own glory and expresses the very character of God, and he sustains everything by the mighty power of his command. Hebrews 1:3

For in Christ lives all the fullness of God in a human body. Colossians 2:9

James 2:1 My brothers, show no partiality as you hold the faith in our Lord Jesus Christ, the Lord of glory.

Moses was asking without knowing it to see Jesus!

But he did not meet the requirement.

What was he requirement?

Blood washed soul!

Yet Moses was so compelling that God gave him a consolation prize.

You won’t see my face but you can see my back.

God showed him partial glory because God will always answer that prayer request!

That prayer request is arguably one of the most powerful prayers we can make;

SHOW ME YOUR GLORY!

You are who God says you are.

You live what you pray.

If you ask for him to show you his glory you will have the most glorious year of your life!!!

Isaiah 60:1

Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord has risen upon you.
