He won’t use His power to exert dominance over us, He uses His power to make us like Him, dispensing amongst us the very glory that merits His position of honor and authority.
When we are captivated by a vision of what could be and are filled with a conviction that it should be, we are capable of achieving great and wonderful things for the glory of God.
There’s something amazing here. Particularly, it’s a glory that is so magnificent that it makes all of the sufferings of these present times seem trivial when set side-by-side. And the shocking thing is that I am not at all minimizing the suffering that’s going on in the world. Things really are as horrible as they seem and probably even more so than we realize, but just as horrible as things are now, the weight of glory awaiting us will be a million times heavier.
