Are you overwhelmed by Him?

Psalm 72:19
Praise his glorious name forever!
Let the whole earth be filled with his glory.
Amen and amen!

Something I realized this morning as I was spending time in the Word was that this is a big prayer! Think about it. The whole earth be filled with God’s glory. Not just my heart, not just the hearts of those around me, not just USF’s heart. But, the whole earth. When you think about Jesus Christ on that cross, blood flowing from his hands and feet, and how He blotted out our sins, do you get overwhelmed?

My devo said this:

You are not a man unless you start from your knees and cry, ‘Let the whole earth be filled with His glory; Amen, and Amen.’ Your piety is worthless unless it leads you to wish that the same mercy which has been extended to you may bless the whole world.

My wife and I had the privilege of praying with someone to receive Christ this week in our living room, on our knees. That overwhelms me, that God can change someone so much that their fiancée notices a transformation before the wedding. Now God is truly going to be in their marriage.

When was the last time you were overcome with His grace and mercy? If so, why are you keeping it to yourself?

The time of harvest is here, but are you ready?
