day 17


And the four living creatures, each one of them having six wings, are full of eyes around and within; and day and night they do not cease to say, “Holy, holy, holy is the Lord God, the Almighty, who was and who is and who is to come.”

It’s hard for us to fathom that day and night, there are heavenly beings that have one purpose. Literally, for all of eternity, they say and do the same things over and over and over and over again.Their entire being is meant to exclusively worship God.

“Holy Holy Holy is the Lord God, the Almighty! Who was … who is … and WHO IS TO COME!


They don’t tire. They never stop.

Constantly they cry of the Holiness of our God.

They never cease to declare the greatness of His glory.

With obedient joy they literally exist for this cause. 

God, in His love for us, made a way through Jesus for us to have the same privilege. We have the honor to obediently worship Jesus with the entirety of our existence as well. Our greatest challenge is not to allow other things to captivate our affections, which eventually if left unchecked, will co-opt our allegiance. 

Our obedience will always be determined by our allegiance.

If being completely honest, what is it that truly has the attention of our affection?Does God’s greatness and glory challenge our ability to worship lesser things?Do we find ourselves so stirred by His presence, that we can’t help ourselves from crying Holy Holy Holy, not just with our lips, but with our lives? With our time? With our resources? With our lifestyles? 

Our idolatry is the enemy of our obedience. 

May the glory of His presence ruin us for anything other than Him.

May the awareness of His holiness completely strip away our idolatries, leaving only a willing and obedient heart laid bare before Him. He alone is worthy. He alone is holy, holy, holy.

He alone is deserving of our worship, our affections, and our obedience.

"Holiness is the strength of the soul. It comes by faith and through obedience to God's laws and ordinances. God then purifies the heart by faith, and the heart becomes purged from that which is profane and unworthy. When holiness is achieved by conforming to God's will, one knows intuitively that which is wrong and that which is right before the Lord. Holiness speaks when there is silence, encouraging that which is good or reproving that which is wrong."
