See the Glory

You’re glory

is everywhere, God!

 

in the midst of a sin-tainted world

 

light in darkness

beauty in ugliness

revelation in confusion

 

And some remain asleep

to that glory

 

and look to shallow

and frivolous

and breakable

 

ascribing worth

to worthless

 

I glorify You, God!

 

I recognize

and see

and hear

YOU God

 

here

 

Everywhere

 

I make much of You!

 

For You

are ALL

 

and worthy

worthy

worthy

 

of my attention

and adoration

and love

 

Glory

glory

glory

 

to my God!

 

Always sufficient

Always perfect

Always just

Always loving

 

Always deserving of glory

 

I look in Your eyes,

Jesus

 

I believe

and I see Your glory!

Jesus looked her in the eye. “Didn’t I tell you that if you believed, you would see the glory of God?”

John 11:40 (MSG)

 

Have you ever come on anything quite like this extravagant generosity of God, this deep, deep wisdom? It’s way over our heads. We’ll never figure it out. Is there anyone around who can explain God? Anyone smart enough to tell Him what to do? Anyone who has done Him such a huge favor that God has to ask his advice? Everything comes from Him; Everything happens through Him; Everything ends up in Him. Always glory! Always praise! Yes. Yes. Yes.

– Romans 11:35-36 (MSG)

 

Then Moses said, “Please, show me Your glory!”

– Exodus 33:18 (AMP)

 

But the basic reality of God is plain enough. Open your eyes and there it is! By taking a long and thoughtful look at what God has created, people have always been able to see what their eyes as such can’t see: eternal power, for instance, and the mystery of His divine being. So nobody has a good excuse. What happened was this: People knew God perfectly well, but when they didn’t treat Him like God, refusing to worship Him, they trivialized themselves into silliness and confusion so that there was neither sense nor direction left in their lives. They pretended to know it all, but were illiterate regarding life. They traded the glory of God who holds the whole world in his hands for cheap figurines you can buy at any roadside stand.

– Romans 1:19-23 (MSG)
