Revelation 4:8 “Holy, holy, holy is the Lord God Almighty,' who was, and is, and is to come.”
Devotional · · · God is not insecure. The Father, the Son and the Spirit are over all and through all and in all (Ephesians 4:4-6). The great I AM (Exodus 3:14) is the same yesterday, today and forever. (Hebrews 13:8) He does not need to hear songs about Himself in order to get through the day. He does not need to have sacrifices made to Him in order to have value. Nothing that we do can give or take away value from God. In true worship, we are recognizing and responding to the immense, generous, neverending, overwhelming value and perfection and holiness that God eternally possesses. In this interaction, we allow the Holy Spirit to change us more and more into the image of Christ as we know more and more of the worthiness of God. The Spirit leads us to respond to that worthiness and structure our lives accordingly, aligned to God’s will and God’s ways. (Romans 12:1-2)
Prayer · · · Holy God, I acknowledge Your perfect holiness. I recognize that Your being is completely independent of me and what I do. But Lord I also praise You for what that recognition does. Thank you that through worship I am able to both learn more of who You are and allow my life to be changed. God I ask that You would transform me through worship. Please show me how to build my life in a way that reflects the reality of who You are. Give me eyes to see your incredible nature and allow me to live in response to that.
