“The Likeness of the Glory of the LORD”

The prophet Ezekiel saw an awesome vision of God in Ezekiel 1. As the prophet tries to describe in words what he saw, he concludes the description with this comment, “Such was the appearance of the likeness of the glory of the LORD. And when I saw it, I fell on my face, and I heard the voice of one speaking (ESV).” We cannot begin to imagine the vast expanse of God’s glory. But when we catch a glimpse of who God is, it prepares us to listen.  Coupling reading the Bible (listening to God) and praying (talking to God), I try to begin my reading by praying, “Lord, help me see you as I read your word. Show me your glory.”


As He, by His Spirit, gives me glimpses of His person as I read His word, it prepares my heart to listen to what He wants to teach me from His word.
