“For the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the LORD, as the waters cover the sea.” Habakkuk 2:24
I will never forget the trip that my husband and I took to Florida. One evening, late at night, we decided to walk on the beach and enjoy the full moon. The full moon was breathtaking as it shined upon the ocean. As we gazed at the beauty of creation and as we listened and watched the white waves crash upon the shoreline, a scripture came to mind: “For the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the LORD, as the waters cover the sea.” Habakkuk 2:24
You see one day all humanity will know the Lord and live in accordance with His will! Can you imagine how glorious that will be?! One day, God will make Himself known throughout the entire earth!
“The glory of the LORD speaks of the full manifestation of His person, significance, presence, and wonder. The true knowledge of God in the time of His kingdom on earth will be like the waters – all embracing, inescapable, and fully enveloping.” Commentary
If at times you become discouraged when you listen to the evening news on television, be encouraged that one day God’s future kingdom on earth will feature a reign of righteousness!
