May He [God] grant you out of the rich treasury of His glory to be strengthened and reinforced with mighty power in the inner man by the (Holy) Spirit [Himself] - indwelling your innermost being and personality…that you may be filled (through all your being) unto all the fullness of God-[that is] may have the richest measure of the divine Presence, and become a body wholly filled and flooded with God Himself!"
(Eph. 3:16,19 AMP)
Can you imagine what it would be like to have the richest measure of the divine presence, and become a body wholly filled and flooded with God Himself? I can! That's the Glory. That's the fullness of God's manifest presence in the earth and I want it!

I want not just my own life, but the whole earth to be filled with the Glory of God. In fact, I believe, as the Church, that we're falling short if we're satisfied with anything less.

We're not only cheating ourselves, we're cheating the world when we don't live in God's Glory. For when God's presence is manifested, the world is changed. Sinners get saved. Lives are forever altered.

Some people say we can't have revival now because people are just too calloused. They don't care about God anymore. But the greatest revivals in the world have come in the past, during the darkest of days. They've come when men's hearts were the coldest.

Well, our world is dark and it's getting darker. Men are belligerent against the things of God and openly show disrespect for Him. But that just tells me we're primed and ready for the manifest presence of God to fill the Church. It tells me we're ready for the Glory!

You may not feel like God can manifest His Glory through someone as unglorious as you. But let me assure you, He can. For in the closing words of Paul's prayer in Ephesians 3 he says, "Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us, Unto him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end" (vv. 20-21).

That verse plainly says, GOD IS ABLE! He not only wants to manifest His fullness through you and me, He is able! You couldn't do it. I couldn't do it. Even if the whole Church got together and we all tried to fill ourselves with the Glory of God, we couldn't do it.

But God is able!

Speak the Word: God grants me out of the rich treasury of His glory to be strengthened and reinforced with mighty power in my inner man. (Eph. 3:16 AMP)
