One of the things that I enjoy doing is setting aside a private time to immerse myself in the presence of the Lord. There’s no place I enjoy doing that other than the prayer room at our church. I have a prayer partner whom I go with and, when we go, we mean business. Don’t get me wrong, I spend time with God as well at home but sometimes there are distractions here and there that keep you from staying focused. For me it’s just worth that drive outside my comfort zone in order to go to war against demonic forces operating in the spirit realm.
This week as we were wrapping up our time with the Lord, He dropped in my spirit “Spiritual Glow”. We began praying that God will give all the members of our church a Spiritual Glow and people will begin to ask questions like “What’s happening to you lately?”, “You are glowing, tell me your secrets.”
We left there filled with joy and happiness. When I came home I began to research more on the word “Spiritual Glow”. To glow according to Webster Dictionary means:
To give off light and heat; To shine as if greatly heated; To show a strong bright color; To be excessively hot
The synonym for the word “glow” is “light”. Light in the dictionary simply means: Bright color
“Who is like a wise man? And who knows the interpretation of a thing? A man’s wisdom makes his face shine, And the sternness of his face is changed.”
Ecclesiastes 8:1 NKJV
Having a Spiritual Glow means that the glow of God is a strong, bright light of Christ which shines forth from your face. God has given us victory, meaning our joy is not dependent on our current circumstances. His Word says that “in His presence there is fullness of joy and at His right hand there are pleasures evermore”.
It is God who puts joy on our face; He reaches way down in our hearts and makes us feel better. The good news is that His presence is everywhere we go and it causes us to glow.
If we say we are believers we should have a heavenly glow so that others are convinced that we have encountered Jesus. My prayer is that Lord will help us to spend more time living in His presence, so that His glory will shine on us.
