“For Yours is the Kingdom and the Power and the Glory Forever. Amen”

 

By: Evang. Tashara Luster

 

All glory to God, Who is able to answer all prayer, prayed in the right manner and context. I simple prayer should be, “Father, Your grace has been sufficient and all I do is for your Glory.”  No matter the situation, God will always reveal Himself in a way that causes you to worship and give Him glory.  The enemy did not want God to get the glory, so he attacked what you stood for in order to stop you and the Kingdom. As it relates to your life, God will always call you what you are supposed to be, which is far beyond what you see right now.

 

“Now to Him who is able to keep you without stumbling or slipping or falling, and to present [you] unblemished (blameless and faultless) before the presence of His glory in triumphant joy and exultation [with unspeakable, ecstatic delight]” (Jude 1:24-AMP).

Only what you do for Christ will last or stand.  When you do what you do for God’s glory, it will all work out. How does God define you? Ask God, “Daddy, what is needed from me to do for You and Your Glory?”  There is always something to do, but there remains the best portion of what we do. Everything that we do must be done with the mindset that it is for the glory of God. Everything that we do must be done with the mindset that it is for the glory of God.

 

The Glory of God!

And he said, “Please, show me Your glory.” 19Then He said, “I will make all My goodness pass before you, and I will proclaim the name of the Lord before you. I will be gracious to whom I will be gracious, and I will have compassion on whom I will have compassion.” 20But He said, “You cannot see My face; for no man shall see Me, and live.” 21And the Lord said, “Here is a place by Me, and you shall stand on the rock. 22So it shall be, while My glory passes by, that I will put you in the cleft of the rock, and will cover you with My hand while I pass by. 23Then I will take away My hand, and you shall see My back; but My face shall not be seen”

 (Exodus 33:18-23).

 

For He received from God the Father honor and glory when such a voice came to Him from the Excellent Glory: “This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased” (2 Peter 1:17).

“Therefore we do not lose heart. Even though our outward man is perishing, yet the inward man is being renewed day by day. 17 For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, is working for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory18 while we do not look at the things, which are seen, but at the things which are not seen. For the things, which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal” (2 Corinthians 4:16-18).

“But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord”

(2 Corinthians 3:18).

 You will be stretched beyond measure in order to live The Total Picture and Unleash the Secret Design for your life.  The finished work has to reflect God and His Glory. For far too long, you have settled for just the anointing, which is individualistic and only deals with and rests only upon you.  If you are to grasp the depth of the Total Picture that God has for you, then it cannot be only about you.  You have to seek the Glory because the Glory is the ultimate level; it is the Total Picture of life.

The Glory is the covering.  In the beginning, Adam and Eve were naked and unashamed; it was only after the fall that the glory no longer covered their nakedness.  After the Fall, natural things (leaves), which are outside sources, had to be used to cover their shame, guilt, and their sin.

The Glory (God’s presence) would come to meet with them daily, but after the Fall, we have to seek and ask for the glory.  The Glory is the Total Picture because it was the covering in the beginning, and it was the first thing stripped after the Fall of man.  I tell you today to recover what has been stripped off you.  The Total Picture is the Recovery of the Glory! You could ask for many things, but what you need is the Glory.

The finished work was the backside of God’s Glory in the Exodus passage. The anointing is about you, but the Glory is what rests on the house (the multitudes, those that are behind you), the totality of your life.  Interestingly enough, the Glory has nothing to do with you, but it is all about God.  This is why most of us do not seek it because we are not in the picture and it is not all about us.  It takes the focus off you and it all goes back to God.  The Glory does what you cannot; it is not dependent upon your actions.

There is no glory for soldiers until a battle is won.  Life is not always easy, but it is worth the fight.  We know that whatever happens in life is destined to work for our good, even the heat of battle and the hurt of persecution.  Until we accept that we go through life’s challenges and that bad things do happen to good people, we will never completely understand the concept of life.  Hardships will cultivate you into the person you are meant to be, just as victories shape you into that person too.  If you are to be all that God has called for you to be, you have to realize it is in the midst of hurt, pain, adversities, joy, peace, and victories that this will transpire.  All of life’s circumstances are causing you to be the best you, even when you feel like you will not make it.

How do you live the Total Picture in the midst of what seems to be taking life from you because it seems too much to bear?  Learn how to suffer with some Grace.  Grace is one of the biggest parts of the Total Picture.  We are saved by grace and we are forgiven daily by God’s grace.  Glory and suffering go hand-in-hand as it relates to the total picture.

“And if children, then heirs—heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ, if indeed we suffer with Him, that we may also be glorified together…For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us” (Romans 8:17-18).

 Suffering has its part in the Glory Factor of the Total Picture.

You realize suffering is a perfecting process. You realize suffering is working for your good, and you realize that pain and suffering is not always a bad thing.  Pain in and of itself is not a bad thing. For instance, pain in the body alarms you that something is wrong.  The enemy only comes after those that have great potential and those preparing for Destiny.  If you are not under any type of attack, then you are not operating at your full potential.

The enemy only attacks greatness, he only attacks determination, and he only attacks those who have a future, and those with great Destiny.  You are suffering now, but you are getting ready to reign victorious!  God is trying to get His glory out of you.  What the enemy had for bad, the Lord is turning around for your good.  You are going from Suffering to Success!

  “And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose” (Romans 8:28).

What you are going through is working for your good.  Tell the Trouble that is on you now, “Since you showed up, go to work for me.”  Tell cancer, diabetes, high blood pressure, the marital issues, the hardship of finances, and everything else, to go to work for you.  Your sufferings are going to bring forth blessings that you can’t even imagine.  In the Total Picture, suffering is not just suffering because out of it, you will be established.

The attack is against you, but it is about God.  That is why the enemy (lucifer, the former chief musician and worshipper) is after your praise, because he is still trying to shut down the Kingdom of God, so that God cannot be praised for who He is.  The enemy no longer has access to Heaven or to the Kingdom of God, so he goes through us to try to stop the glory of God from coming forth. Always remember, God is Glorious, He is to be Glorified, and He Lives in Glory!

 

Today- just say Amen, which means, “It’s Already Done!”
