  • Hey! Here is my story! Who is the King of Glory?
  • Sometimes I feel as if getting to know God has been a lifelong endeavor of mine. I have witnessed God work in miraculous ways, like last minute financial crisis’ being turned into financial gains. I have felt God’s presence within my body and soul from getting chills on my skin to fire shot up in my bones. With that I ask “who is the King of Glory?” Jesus Christ! “And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth” (Matthew 28:18, KJV) At 28, the King of Glory has become a combination of a hopeful, supportive, emotional, mental, and physical support system that which my soul’s presence doesn’t want to escape. I’m simply manifesting his presence in new ways and praying for his complete and perfect will to be done as I acknowledge him in my own ways. One major characteristic of God is that God has time, people, places and things all in His hands. “All things were made by him; and without him was not anything made that was made” (John 1:3, KJV) One particular event that I’m dying to share is the day I was moving out of my apartment in West Chester, PA to relocate to New York City to be a writer. I didn’t have the funds to pay for movers so I had to consider a plan B which consisted of months of selling furniture, giving away items that I didn’t need to the neighbors and throwing away items that couldn’t be packed in the car on my journey to New York. I particularly wanted to throw away a pretty wide black wooden TV stand and I had a hard time trying to lift it into the dumpster. In my “perfect God’s timing” spiritually discerning eye I found it comforting to see the community garbage truck driver just about to get into his truck. I asked, “Do you mind helping me lift my TV stand into the dumpster?” He replied, “I’m sorry but it wouldn’t be safe for health security reasons.” I thanked him for his time and had to trust God but for that moment. I tried lifting that thing off the ground and into the dumpster but I had no luck! My hope in Jesus Christ kicked in! I was determined to get that TV stand in the dumpster and by myself. My heart spoke volumes of “please help” and “God, send someone” My heart merely had to be desperate and in need for a loving and faithful God. A fellow neighbor whom I never met before walked up to me with his dog on a leash and a gentle British accent, “Do you need a hand?” I relinquished my will for God’s as I couldn’t refuse the power of the Holy Spirit’s tactics to keep me from breaking my back to do His will. I replied, “Sure, thanks so much. I really appreciate it.” The gentleman let go of keeping a watchful eye on his prized possession for one second to use his manly strength to lift my TV stand properly into the dumpster. It was a reminder that even when financially one can’t make a move happen, God still moves on one’s behalf! With that I must understand, who is the King of Glory? That we must sit and wait for redemption in every matter of living? I see that a huge part of God’s works come in a manner of holiness and peace; God never fails me. I don’t think like this that often. As a matter of fact if it was up to my former ways of thinking I would hope that I would have to pay for everything that anyone ever does for me. I always had this fear that when someone blesses me with their time and energy then I have to do something in return for them. In God’s perfect will he trains the hearts over time to be kind and recognize that they aren’t mine. We don’t get to experience God’s power right away but our influence of the world at least takes us from our parent’s backyard and carries us into working with other people God has in his perfect idea of location. With that, I wonder who is the King of Glory. He doesn’t have to obey us, we have to obey him. Even in all his sovereignty, no one can compare to who he is and how he chooses to be the God we serve. For this I’m more than grateful! For this I can be in that damsel in distress moment and not preach the gospel knowing that God sought out a moment for me to sit still to see how he blesses me. My strength renewed by His spirit is what I love to see! He is the King of glory! That is Jesus Christ the living King! By TaJuanda Michelle, Christian Non-fiction Writer
