Seeking His Glory, Speaking with Authority

Rod Shimabukuro

The one who speaks on his own authority seeks his own glory; but the one who seeks the glory of him who sent him is true, and in him there is no falsehood. John 7:18
Jesus’ teachings were radical - revolutionary - yet ridiculous to many. Jews were stunned since Jesus was not learned under a Rabbinical priest. Jesus didn’t have the accolades, degree or reputation among his Rabbi colleagues. Yet He was changing lives, attracting more followers and proclaiming a truth unheard of. Jesus’ claims to be sent from God, equal to God shook the core of many Jews.
I am more convinced - more confident in the message of Truth that I believe and speak of. Jesus is the Son of God, sent from Father God who speaks with authority, seeks the Father’s glory.

I desire to be a man of God who speaks of my Father’s glory - from His authority, proclaiming HIs Word in truth and power. I desire to speak HIs truth with a pure heart - not with impure motives.
Dear Daddie, Thank you for revealing Your truth to me. I’m honored to meditate on Your Word, studying to whew myself approved to be Your workman! I ask for Your favor and anointing to speak Your Word with confidence and conviction - through and by Your Spirit!
