   For the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the LORD, as the waters cover the sea.
    -- Habakkuk 2:14, New International Version

   What a thought.  This reminds me of a quote, I have attributed to Shakespeare(if you know better, let me know.  I think it could be from Dante's Inferno) regarding heaven and hell.  For that matter, the Kingdom of God.  "[Hell] is the full knowledge of the love of God, and then the lack thereof."  If that is the case, then I believe the author would go on to say the Kingdom of God is the Knowledge and Presence of God's Love, and Peace.
    Hear the Good News, Christ tells us the Kingdom of God is around us, within us.  By this, I believe him to mean wherever God reigns, The Kingdom is present.  Christ came so we might know the Kingdom of God.  Ask God to reign over your life, to give you inspiration and love that you might share today.

   Almighty God, please lead me to someone who needs to know your peace and love.  Allow me to reach out in that love so we both might experience Your Reign in our life.  Please bless your servants all around the world as they share your message with others.  Finally, keep my eyes open so I might see this glorious promise when it becomes fully realized.  In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
