For the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord, as the waters cover the sea (Habakkuk 2:14).
It makes my heart glad upon receiving news of Jesus and of His work in the world. He is doing a great work! The Holy Spirit is also very active in His work of making Jesus known through us! It is staggeringly amazing that God diffuses through us the fragrance of His Son (2 Corinthians 2:14-17)? We have become dispensers of the fragrance of Jesus! Wherever we go or whatever we do, everyone has the presence of Jesus before them.
The prophet Habakkuk says to us in Habakkuk 2:14, “for the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord, as the waters cover the sea.” He shows us that God is going to shut down all the efforts of the enemy to overrun His people. I believe that the Lord Jesus has already begun to engage the forces of darkness through the Church, which is His Body. He is engaging these forces so as to manifest His glorious victory on the Cross. It is not only God’s desire that the knowledge of the glory of the Lord fills the earth, but it is His ultimate purpose coupled with Divine certainty! Therefore, He is using us to bring about this ultimate certainty—His victory.
We are a part of what the Lord is doing in the earth! Paul says in 1 Corinthians 3:9, “for we are God’s fellow workers; you are God’s field, you are God’s building.” We are fellow workers, that is, we are helpers with God in His grand plan for the earth. We are His field, that is, He has planted in us the seed of His Word, thus producing a bountiful crop of spiritual blessings which will never cease. We are God’s building, that is, He has designed us, and we are now under construction for a greater display of His eternal glory in the earth!
Let us resolve to understand and do the will of God in order to be usable in these final days.
