“God is Magnificent”
By Robert G. Fuhrman Copyright C. April 6, 2009
I was studying my bible one morning about six months ago and I read the word Glory. I began to pray asking God for His discernment as to the meaning of Glory. I do give God the Glory but I did not fully understand it’s meaning in an everyday context.
Then in my thoughts, in my soul the word Magnificent came into my mind. Ok Lord, I said to myself I will look up in my Merriam-Webster’s dictionary the word “Glory”. So I got up from my easy chair and retrieved my dictionary for this exercise in following the Lord’s guidance. The third definition of the word “Glory” is “Magnificent”.
“Magnificent’, great beauty and splendor …… a state of great gratification or exaltation.
Ok Lord, this I really do understand and you are “Magnificent” in Your “Glory”.
This is how — 1 Corinthians 2:11-16 — has been an influence in my walk with Jesus Christ for many years. “The Mind of Christ”. Pray and listen, living your life with faith working through love — Galatians 5:6.
I hope you enjoy this photograph of Borrego Springs; the magnificence of the California desert blooming full of color in its spring time Glory.
Lord You Are Magnificent!
To You the Glory!
