There are times when I find myself praying that God would simply open up the heavens and pour down His glory: a kind of Isaiah 64:1 'rend the heavens' thing, or Isaiah 45:8 'you heavens above rain down my righteousness', or Isaiah 40:5 'the glory of the Lord will be revealed'!
Yes please, Lord, let your glory fall.
A few weeks ago I had the privilege of passing through Singapore, with time to visit 'The Jewel' at the airport. Truly an extraordinary achievement of man, and a sight to behold - for you get to see this!
In my mind its hard to beat this sight enjoyed at The Jewel as an illustration of God rending the heavens and pouring down His glory! The domed roof for me is symbolic of that spiritual barrier perceived by many between us in physical creation and the heavenlies. Yet through this barrier God pours in an incredible abundance, which produces life all around it (see the lush green plants/trees around the pool).
On occasion when doing prayer ministry for someone I will get a sense of God pouring down onto/into their life. Sometimes it is a sense of water falling, sometimes like rose petals gentle coming down over the person, just occasionally soothing or anointing oil. Any of these is encouraging for me and the person receiving prayer.
Yet I continue to pray and long for a day when 'the glory of the Lord will be revealed', where it is an unmistakable mass waterfall seeming to come through the 'roof' of the world!
