Psalm 19: 1-4 ” The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of His hands. Day after day they pour forth speech; night after night they display knowledge. There is no speech or language where their voice is not heard. Their voice goes out into all the earth, their words to the ends of the world.”

We all have blind spots.  Areas of our life we can’t see, or chose not to see.  Sometimes it’s intentional, sometimes it’s due to ignorance that we can’t see what’s right in front of our faces.  This Psalm of David is quite blunt…you can’t help but see the majesty of God around you.  For everywhere you look is displayed His glorious work of creation.  And creation doesn’t need words to proclaim God’s glory to the world…we need simply to gaze up into the starry sky, glance at the blooming flowers, and listen to the bird’s singing to understand.

Matthew 6:10 ” Your Kingdom come, Your Will be done on earth as it is in heaven.”

Psalm 40:8 tells us, “I desire ( or choose) to do Your will O my God.”  We even see Jesus in the Garden of Gethsemane praying, “Yet not as I will (want), but as You will.” (Matthew 26:39)   When we seek God’s will… we desire that which pleases God and thus will create joy within us…for we will find ourselves in the center of His will…and it’s the very best place to be.

Hebrews 1:3 ” The Son is the radiance of God’s glory and the exact representation of His being, sustaining all things by His powerful Word. “

Maybe you’ve never heard the term – Shekinah Glory – but here in Hebrews it attempts to explain how Jesus was the perfect expression of the divine essence of His Father.  God’s luminous presence was manifested in Jesus, and this splendor and light could not be dampened or hidden from sight…for God’s Shekinah Glory cannot be contained.
