If we do not get to promise because of our willingness to remain just this side of it, we end up accepting our present circumstances as an acceptable substitute. One of the defeating factors of living with that substitute long enough is that it can become preferred over the cost of actually getting to promise. But anything short of promise also falls short of glorifying God. 2Cor.1:20, TPT — “For all of God’s promises find their “yes” of fulfillment in him. And as his “yes” and our “amen” ascend to God, we bring him glory!”
“Glory” can be translated “excellence”. If we stop short of the excellent purpose and use of God’s power in our life, we have stopped short of His glory. The glory of God through us is purpose revealed and realized. Thayer says that “glory” means “splendor, brightness of the moon”. We only speak of the beauty of the moon because it is reflecting the sun, and the only reason there is reflection is because of the power of the sun. We can only show forth the glory of Him who sits on the throne in heaven. Let us ask, “What of my life points back to heaven?” We are not come-shorters; we are go-forthers whose lives bring attention and recognition to the redemptive God of the ages.
