For the earth shall be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the LORD, as the waters cover the sea.
The created world even now displays the glory of God, yet many are blind to it. The Bible is available to untold millions, and in it the glory of God is revealed, yet many are unable to see it there either. But when Christ, in whom all the fullness of God’s glory dwells, shall return to reign on the earth, God’s glory will be known to the whole world as never before.
Help us, O Lord, to see your power, love, wisdom, and all your glorious attributes even now in this imperfect age. But we also encourage our hearts with the knowledge that your glory will be displayed in full splendor in the age to come. We look forward to the day when no man will teach his neighbor saying “Know the Lord, ” for they will all already know Him. (Jeremiah 31:34)
