Show Me Thy Glory

And he said, I beseech thee, shew me thy glory…. And he said, Thou canst not see my face: for there shall no man see me, and live.
Exodus 33:18, 20 KJV

There’s a psychology of non satisfaction among the intercessors of this world. It comes partly from the joy of getting your prayers answered. The other is the innate burden for more of God. You would have thought that being that intimate with God was enough. Wait until you get God to act on your requests, there will be an inner drive to get more answers. That’s why intercessors pray for long. There’s the intense gratification of not wanting to let go. There’s the story about John Hyde. He used to pray so intense that he will forget to eat. If he comes out later, and did not see his food standing on the dinning, he will return with the assumption that maybe he ate and just forgot. Talk about being more in the spirit than in the flesh. So Moses asked to see the Glory of God. That was some prayer. He asked to see what human flesh could not see. Moses is not aware of that, he is enjoying answers. God understood his feelings, and allows him to see the after glow of his back parts while he is protected. He saw the back parts of God in the old testament, in the new testament, we played with God and like John, lie in his blossom. You were born in a good time: you can desire more of God. You know what? You will be surprised what His answer may be. Just say, like Oliver Twist, Lord I want some more!
