Good Saturday Central Family! Can you believe that we are just days away from having read the bible in one year!? What a privilege it has been for me to join you on this voyage! If there is one theme that has stuck out to me today it is that of PRAISE and GLORY. For some of us, the book of Revelation can be somewhat difficult to understand. It is a book filled with prophecy written by John in the revelation of Jesus Christ. While exiled to the island of Patmos, John was told by the Spirit of God to write down the things that were about to be shared with him. John was then to send what was spoken to seven churches.
Fast forward to Revelation, chapter 4, verse 1: John writes in detail about the Throne room and it’s surroundings. He describes four living creatures and all they do, DAY and NIGHT, WITHOUT ceasing, is proclaim this:
“Holy, Holy, Holy is the Lord God Almighty who was, and is, and is to come.”
And whenever the creatures give glory, the twenty-four elders who are also there, fall on their knees to worship Him. The elders take off their crowns of gold, lay them before the throne and proclaim:
“You are worthy, our Lord and God, to receive glory and honor and power, for you created all things, and by your will they were created and have their being.”
Every single moment in the throne room is filled with praise and glory to God! Nothing ceases to give Him the praise!
I was just so compelled by today’s reading to give glory and praise to God in every moment! One of my most favorite songs is “Revelation Song.” I went ahead and shared this song with you at the end of this post. If you get a chance to get away, I encourage you to spend some time magnifying the Lord and dwelling in His majesty. I promise you that there is nothing better, His presence is enough! He is Holy! He is Worthy! Lord, receive our praises this day. You are worthy to receive everything!
