You are faithful, You never give up, never give up on me. You are able, to finish the work You started in me.
You are stable, through every change that this life could bring.
8 Moses said, “Please show me your glory.”
19 And [God] said, “I will make all my goodness pass before you and will proclaim before you my name ‘The Lord.’ And I will be gracious to whom I will be gracious, and will show mercy on whom I will show mercy.
God’s glory is His goodness.
Have you ever thought about that?
Often, we think that God’s glory is a formidable, sometimes wrathful, bright light that overpowers us. But in Exodus, God refers to His own glory as His goodness. When I read the passage, I was left with a sense of awe and wonder. When we think of God as glorious, have we ever thought of it as His goodness? He is glorious because of His characteristics – not only is He good, but he is also gracious and merciful.
These things make Him glorious, and it makes me love Him even more because I realise that above all, God is good; He is goodness; He is glorious.
