Day 25: A vision of His glory

Let Your work appear to Your servants, and Your glory to their children. And let the beauty of the LORD our God be upon us, and establish the work of our hands upon us, yes, the work of our hands – establish it! (Psalm 90:16-17)

If anyone had seen God move in power, it was Moses. It takes pages just to make a list of all the amazing miracles he had seen; few people in history have been so used in signs and wonders. One might think that Moses, of all people, wouldn’t expect God to top himself one better.

But in his heart, somehow Moses knew there was a greater future for the people of God than they themselves had dared to imagine. He prays that the generation to come will not only see the works of God but see His glory. The goal of being in the promised land and having a Temple was not to eat the fruit of Canaan and have peace in the land. The goal was to have a place where God would appear and show His glory to His children. Moses prayed that the work would be established so that their experience of God could surpass theirs. So let it be with us!

God, we have seen You do so many amazing things for us – but we dare to believe that you have more to show us! Continue Your mighty works on our behalf, and let us and let the generations to follow see a manifestation of Your glory in our church and in our homes!
