Heaven has opened and God has spoken. God’s voice is not soft or meek, His voice blasts as the sound of a trumpet! God is Sovereign, Majestic, Holy, Eternal, Creator, and Our Father. From God’s perspective, He is surrounded by the sights and sounds of heavenly worship, still His eye is on His creation. Day and night heaven sings, ” ‘Holy, holy, holy is the Lord God Almighty,’ who was, and is, and is to come.” The twenty-four elders fall down and lay their crowns at His feet. Do you see the reality of God as your Creator and your Father?
The apostle John is imprisoned on the island of Patmos, invited by the Lord Jesus Christ to come and see the throne room of heaven. John describes what he sees because Jesus told him to write it down! John draws a picture of God’s glory for us to contemplate. We can see that Heaven is a place of continual worship involving all of creation.
What is worship? And how does that relate to my daily world and eternity? True worship is discovered when God is at its center. Our worship echoes God’s greatness back to Him. True worship means serving God alone, in Christ alone.
Read: We can find a picture of God’s throne room in Revelation Chapter Four. Right away we see God is Sovereign and Majestic as John describes God at the center of His throne room. John enters the throne room as Jesus opens the door. What a wonderful invitation! We can be very grateful for our glimpse as well, into Heaven’s Central Command Center. God’s perspective is always eternal and timeless because He controls the past, present, and future. God is not bound by time, still we can get a glimpse as we read and ponder John’s words. The result of God’s majesty reminds us that true worship is found when we keep God at its center.
Reflect: Think about it! Worship expresses the worth of someone or something. Worship is a noun and a verb. Worship is a title of honor and respect, yet we give worship.
Respond: What or Who are you worshipping? How valuable is God in your life? Have you developed His perspective, His eyes? If not, why not? If you believe God is Sovereign and Majestic, then why do you worry? Are you imprisoned by depression, fear, or sickness? Then… look into Heaven’s Throne Room and worship your Sovereign and Majestic God.
How will you linger in God’s presence today?
