Pray for the Glory of God to Fill the Earth

Pray for the Glory of God to Fill the Earth

Let the whole earth be filled with His glory. Amen and Amen (Psalm 72:19, NKJV).

There are times when to pray for just one person is enough to stagger us. To intercede for a whole city needs a vast amount of faith. But how far-reaching was the psalmist’s request: “Let the whole earth be filled with his glory.”

This prayer does not ignore a single country, however crushed it might be under the foot of superstition. This prayer is uttered for every culture and race. It encompasses the entire earth, leaving out not even one son or daughter of Adam.

Is this your prayer? Turn your eyes to Calvary. Look at the Lord of Life nailed to a cross. When you feel his blood applied to your guilt, and when you know that he has blotted out your sins, how can you avoid falling to your knees and crying out, “Let the whole earth be filled with his glory; Amen, and Amen.”

How can you bow before your crucified Saviour in loving homage, and not wish to see your King the master of the world? How can you pretend to love Prince Jesus and not desire to see him be the universal ruler?

Your religion is worthless unless it leads you to wish for that same mercy that God has extended to you to bless the whole world. – Charles Spurgeon (adapted)

Eli’s Reflection:  In practical terms, how large is your ambition for the kingdom of God? Is it only for yourself? Your family? Your city? Your society? The world? Eternity? Challenge yourself with the question, “Why is my ambition for God still so small?”

Come Back to Jesus!

How about you, friend? May I ask you this? Have you turned from your sins and received Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. Is your life truly devoted to Him? Do you bear the fruit of a life lived for Christ? And, if so, are you taking the love, time, and care daily to tell the world about Him? Are you sold out to Jesus? And to telling people the only way to everlasting life is through Christ?

Blessedness in Singleness

The single life for Christ is not for everyone. But for those of us it is for, the Lord will give us the strength we need, the love we desire, absolutely everything we need to walk day by day through this life without a human romantic companion, knowing there is no companion anyway that even comes close to the one who is forever. Than to Jesus. Than to Christ. Than to the Lord! AMEN!

When God Chooses Your Life

What if you surrendered your life 100% to the Lord Jesus Christ? Not holding anything back? Willing to yield to Him your plans, dreams, agenda, calendar, time, heart, your work life, your social life, your entertainment life, your romantic life, your family life, your travel life, your sports and hobby life, your housing, your plans, your absolutely everything? Would your life look the same as it does right now? Or would it be entirely different? Or perhaps somewhere in between?

Help Me to Love

Why do I pray this? Why am I sharing this with you? To love is not always so very easy. Sometimes it is so very hard. Sometimes it seems impossible. At times I have been so very mad at God because of my life’s challenges at the time, or because I didn’t get something I prayed for, that I had everything but love in my heart. I had everything but praise in my mind and my mouth. I missed love in my actions. Oh, how wrong I was to be mad at God! I needed to purify myself and love the Lord instead. With all my heart. As He commands us.
