#ourCOG 2014: Year of the Glory of God
2014 comes with a word from 1 Kings 8 where the glory of God has filled the newly built temple for the very first time. The same glory, which the prophet Isaiah will later see in the year when the king has died, and the prophet Ezekiel will see leaving the Holy of Holies.
When the glory fills the Temple, it is time for the leaders to pray for the nation. But while Moses had prayed in the same situation with a prayer of recollection of the past miracles of God, Solomon prays with a prophetic prayer for the future of the people of God.
And right there in v. 38 it states that the prayer made by “any man of all Thy people Israel can return the nation back to God.” Verse 39 continues with a supplication that contains a prophetic promise, which turns the personal perspective of one man into a destiny for the whole nation:
“Then hear thou in heaven thy dwelling place, and forgive, and do, and give to every man according to his ways, whose heart thou knowest; (for thou, even thou only, knowest the hearts of all the children of men;).”
The prayer of one man whose heart is known to God can return a nation back into the glory. Are you that man in 2014?
When you change a GENERATION you change a NATION
