Today’s Word Of Encouragement From Wayne:
“The Spirit lifted me up and brought me into the inner court; and behold, the glory of the Lord filled the house”
When we follow the Holy Spirit’s leading, to go into our inner court, as priests ministering to our Lord, we are blessed to “behold, the glory of the Lord.”
Yes, allow the Spirit of God within you to lift you up into your inner court and you will “Behold,” which means “Look at this!” Yes, you will behold the glory of the Lord when you enter your “inner room” (Matthew 6:6) as a priest unto God.
This is exactly what Paul described, as he was writing about our new covenant in Jesus Christ in 2nd Corinthians, chapters three and four. He stated, “For God, who said, ‘Light shall shine out of darkness,’ is the One who has shone in our hearts to give us the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Christ” (2nd Corinthians 4:6).
“In our hearts,” in the inner court within us, as priests, we have received from God “the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Christ.” In our inner court, as priests, in the presence of Jesus Christ, our High Priest, Who “always lives to make intercession” (Hebrews 7:25), we are blessed to “Behold, the glory of the Lord” “in the face of Christ!”
Behold the glory of the Lord today, and every day. Become a beholder by being regularly lifted up by the Spirit into your inner court. Practicing your holy priesthood is highly honoring to “Abba Father,” to Jesus Christ, and to the Holy Spirit, Who is here right now to lift you up into the light and knowledge within you of “the glory of God in the face of Christ.”
Behold - fully look at, linger, drink in, receive, and be changed by - the glory of the Lord in your inner court today. Yes, let the glory of the Lord fill your inner house!
