“Let Your Life Reveal Your Glory
“What is God’s purpose for your life? What vision has He given you? These are important questions because God has appointed you to a unique assignment. God has chosen you to live a life of glory for Him that no one else on earth can live. If you don’t already know, ask Him to reveal to you His purpose and vision for your life. You are filled with untapped glory. God did not give it to you by accident. He put you here on earth to release your glory. Let your life reveal your glory.
Your purpose and vision are your glory. God gave them to you, not to somebody else. Only you can fulfill your purpose or realize your vision. No one else can. You are a “jar of clay” with God’s precious glory stored inside. He endowed you with gifts and talents to use in living out your purpose. Your gifts and talents were given to you in order to release your glory. Don’t bury them away as the wicked and unfaithful servant did in Jesus’ parable (see Matt. 25:14-30). Don’t die in seed form. True success in life is to die empty, with everything “you are poured out completely until nothing is left.
The world needs your glory. Does that statement surprise you? So many of us have come to believe “that we have little or nothing to offer in life. That idea is a lie from the devil. Each of us is part of God’s master plan for creation. You have something the world needs that no one but you can give. Don’t die with your glory still inside. Don’t take your glory to the grave. The earth is waiting for your glory. “Paul understood this. In his letter to the church in Rome he writes:
Now if we are children, then we are heirs—heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ, if indeed we share in His sufferings in order that we may also share in His glory. I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us. The creation waits in eager expectation for the sons of God to be revealed. For the creation was subjected to frustration, not by its own choice, but by the will of the one who subjected it, in hope that the creation itself will be liberated from its bondage to decay and brought into the glorious “freedom of the children of God (Romans 8:17-21).
If you are a believer, you are part of God’s plan to free all of creation from the bondage and decay that sin has caused. If you are not a believer, then you are one of those who need to be set free. Christ is the one who sets us free, and in Him we can fulfill the purpose of God for our lives. “What is God’s purpose for your life? While the specific assignment will be unique to you, the general purpose is the same. Whatever your unique vision, whatever your gifts and talents, this is God’s purpose for your life: Leave your glory on earth before you die.
Let God break your “jar of clay” and pour you out like precious perfume that will leave a heavenly fragrance behind after you have gone. Live your life to its fullest for the glory of God. Don’t be afraid to take some risks, to try new things, to confront new challenges. You will never really know what’s inside you until you face a situation that is bigger than you are. That’s when God can go to work and “do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, “according to His power that is at work within us” (Eph. 3:20).
Like the Olympic torchbearer, “let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven” (Matt. 5:16). If we are faithful in this, we will hasten the day when God’s promise will come to pass:
For the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord, as the waters cover the sea (Habakkuk 2:14).”
