But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us – 2 Corinthians 4:7
The glory of God that has been deposited within you was not put there to be hidden. God’s dream is to see you search out the hidden treasures in your “earthen vessel” by means of the Spirit, so you can have that glory unveiled and made manifest to the world.
Many have lived and died without having the glorious one in them unveiled. They lived and died as the weak, outer earthen vessel only. All the world saw of them was the outer case that had covered the glorious one within. But there’s a greater “you” within that no one has seen yet, and God’s dream and desire is that you’ll discover him and let him out. All the success, victories, and glories you could have are in that greater “you.” If only you knew it, you’d let out that greatness encapsulated in your spirit.
Speaking concerning the Word, John declared, “That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world” (John 1:9). God’s Word is the only light that can help you locate that greater one in you. That light will show you who you really are: a king that has the power to decree a thing and it’s established unto you! (Ecclesiastes 8:4; Job 22:28)
Yes, you might have made mistakes and experienced some disappointments, so you think you know yourself and your limitations; but you’re looking at the wrong thing. Take your eyes off those limitations and look into God’s mirror (His Word). As you look at the glory of God in the mirror, you’re metamorphosed into the image of God’s glory that you see (2 Corinthians 3:18). The more you look at that image, the more you’re changed to become what you see.
This change will happen to you every day as you study God’s Word; as you look at that image in the mirror of God and meditate on it every day. Soon enough, that seemingly weak, timid, failing, limited man that had been out there will give way to the glorious, successful, and powerful new man within. Start today to discover the greater “you” in you from the Word and unveil him to your world.

CONFESSION (Faith’s Proclamation)
I’m the effulgence of God’s glory, beauty and grace. I’m not ordinary, I’m conscious of the supernatural life of God in me; therefore, greatness, excellence and success are in my spirit! And through my words and actions today, I’m unveiling the glory, virtues and perfections of divinity deposited in my spirit to my world!
Proverbs 25:2 – It is the glory of God to conceal a thing: but the honor of kings is to search out a matter.
2 Corinthians 3:18 – But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord
