A Wonderful World

For the earth shall be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the LORD, as the waters cover the sea.

Habakkuk 2:14

The world described here is a great one.  Imagine what a wonderful world it would be if this was our world now.  It will be this world some day, but definitely not today.  But think about how great it will be to live in a world that is “filled with the knowledge of the glory of the LORD.”  It will be filled so much with that knowledge that it will be “as the waters cover the sea.”

Imagine the knowledge of the glory of the LORD filling the earth to that extent.  When we think about the glory of the Lord and have the knowledge of the glory of the Lord, it causes us to act and think differently.  When we really see the glory of the Lord, we will not be so focused on ourselves.  When we behold His glory, we will see how truly sinful we are, and how much we desperately need Him.  We we continue to dwell on His glory, earthly pleasures and sinful, fleshly lusts begin to dim and fall away.  When we see His glory, we are able to better focus on the lives that we should be living for Him.

There is coming a day when this verse will be fulfilled literally.  The earth will be literally filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord.  But, until that day comes, we can have that wonderful world in our own lives.  We can today have a knowledge of the glory of the Lord.  We can today walk in that knowledge and meditate upon it.  We can today look upon His glory and allow it to draw us closer to Him.  Are we?
