Today's "From Faith To Faith" by Kenneth and Gloria Copeland contains another key for walking in the continual Blessing that the God of the Bible, the God of the Covenant, has provided for us:

...I beseech thee, show me thy glory.  Exodus 33:18

You can find that answer in Exodus 33. There Moses is asking God to show him His glory.
Now the word glory could literally be translated "heavy weight." It refers to the heaviest, biggest, grandest thing about someone. It's the sum total of their worth.
So what Moses was actually saying was, "Lord, I want to see the weightiest thing about You. I want to know Your grandest attributes." What did God say to him in response?
Exodus 34:6-7 tells us, "The Lord passed by before him, and proclaimed, The Lord, The Lord God, merciful and gracious, longsuffering, and abundant in goodness and truth, Keeping mercy for thousands, forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin."
Just think about that! When Moses asked God to show him the most important thing about Himself, God showed him His mercy.
That means if you and I are to imitate God (Ephesians 5:1) we must major in mercy too. Mercy, goodness, forgiveness and compassion must mark our behavior above all else.
Major on mercy and others will see the glory of God in you.
This "mercy" that is spoken of here is the  Hebrew word "checed", which means: goodness, faithfulness, kindness, steadfast love, grace, devotion. Receiving His mercy and then giving His mercy out to others is one of the keys to spiritual growth and to getting your own needs met! Remember, Job's situation was dealt with after he prayed for his friends. HE received way more than he had before! THAT is God's mercy at work! AMEN! here is Hillsong with "Mercy, Mercy":

Shalom in him!
