What Does Glory Look Like? 

In a word, Glory fosters wonder. Wonder is a feeling of surprise and admiration caused by something beautiful, unexpected, unfamiliar, or inexplicable. Wonder is a curious desire to know something amazing — it’s something to marvel at. 

God’s Glory is unmatched in life-changing brilliance and wonder. Its magnificence is unparalleled. Its beauty blinding. Its majesty unknown. God’s Glory goes farther and faster, reaches deeper and wider than anything we can imagine. Its wholeness is cosmic. Its love is unmistakable. And its peace is delicious. 

Why? Because the Glory is comprised of God Himself. It carries His character and attributes. Imagine that. Glory is God’s all-consuming presence and essence. Glory is the anointing that inhabits God’s people. Glory causes us to be showered in the Spirit where we can heal miraculously in body, soul and spirit. Glory walks with God’s people changing lives every moment of every day.

Building Our Trust Skills

Learning to trust can take a lifetime or an instant. It all depends on our background, childhood, health, wealth, and more. We have all come from different life experiences and learning to trust will depend not only on those experiences, but also on what God wants to do in our life.

Why do we even need to build trust when the Bible says not to trust ourselves or others without being careful? Because we live here, in this world, now. We are still called to love others as we love ourselves. That won’t change, so we must learn how to trust with healthy boundaries. And remember, the components of trust are faith, hope and love. These take time to understand in our minds and know in our hearts.

We must learn how to build trust in our relationships, since we are called to have them. We can’t worry about the other person’s ability or willingness to trust us — that’s on them. We can control how much we decide to trust them, and we must always keep in mind that we can be disappointed. And that’s okay. We can forgive them and try again.

Here’s a simple step-by-step process for building trust in our relationships:

  1. Be willing to take a risk and have courage to try to trust with healthy boundaries in place.
  2. If trust is misused, revoke it and set new boundaries.
  3. If trust is reciprocated, offer even more by expanding boundaries.

Faith Takes Trust

Doubt and unbelief blocks our faith and trust. Peter was walking on water until he took his eyes off Jesus. Matthew 14:31, TPT reads, “Jesus immediately stretched out his hand and lifted him up and said, ‘What little faith you have! Why would you let doubt win?’” Listen to that… doubt can come against us and win. Doubt can be a demonic force, even a demon, that fights against our beliefs. Cast it out, send it to Jesus to deal with and invite Holy Spirit in. Demons block us. Remember from Scripture that Satan wants to kill, slaughter, and destroy us, and we can’t let him (John 10:10, TPT). We must seek healing and freedom throughout our walk of salvation.

With faith often the question becomes: Do we have to have faith, or more faith, to be healed or set free? The answer is no, we don’t. There are examples in Scripture of people being healed by the faith of others, or by Jesus just doing it Himself.

It’s worth the study to look at Scriptures about trust and faith.

There are several places in Scripture when Jesus talks about “unbelieving” hearts, people, nations and the world. Many times, He is speaking to His disciples when He says it. In other words, some of God’s own people don’t believe what the Bible actually says. This is a problem that can’t be ignored. Christians must learn and follow the truth.
