It’s easy to overlook ordinary, everyday displays of God’s glory.
There are certain prayers in Scripture that so perfectly capture the cry of one’s heart that they are worth repeating. I often pray “I believe, help my unbelief” because it perfectly communicates both my faith and lack thereof. One such prayer that has been on repeat for me since I read it as a high school student comes from Moses: “Please show me your glory.”
After Moses prayed this prayer, the Lord allowed his glory to pass by and Moses saw a glimpse (Exodus 33). I can’t find words to better express my desire that God would reveal himself in such a way! Oh, that he would pass by while I wait for him in the cleft of the rock!
However, my understanding of this prayer has developed over the years. As a sixteen-year-old, I prayed this prayer longing for God to send fire from heaven like he did with Elijah. I still long for this, but I’ve also learned to see God’s glory revealed through less dramatic circumstances.
