A Holy God

The Bible says, "For the mouth speaks out of that which fills the heart." What are you feeding your heart today?
Stop by Woman to Woman to read more. 


AT ONCE,  I was in the Spirit, and there before me was a throne in heaven with someone sitting on it.
And the one who sat there had the appearance
of jasper and carnelian.
A rainbow, resembling an emerald, encircled the throne.
Surrounding the throne were twenty-four other thrones,
and seated on them were twenty-four elders.
They were dressed in white and had crowns of gold on their heads. 

FROM THE THRONE came flashes of lightning,
rumblings and peals of thunder.
Before the throne, seven lamps were blazing.
These are the seven spirits of God.
Also before the throne there was what looked
like a sea of glass, clear as crystal.

IN THE CENTER around the throne, were four living creatures,
and they were covered with eyes, in front and in back.
The first living creature was like a lion, the second was like an ox,
the third had a face like a man, the fourth was like a flying eagle.
Each of the four living creatures had six wings
and was covered with eyes all around, even under his wings.
Day and night they never stop saying:

“Holy, holy, holy
is the Lord God Almighty,
who was, and is, and is to come.”

WHENEVER the living creatures give glory, honor
and thanks to him who sits on the throne and
who lives for ever and ever, the twenty-four elders fall down
before him who sits on the throne,
and worship him who lives for ever and ever.
They lay their crowns before the throne and say:

“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.”
Revelation 4:2-11

This is the ONE we worship!

What is too big for this God? 


Many blessings,

  5. Lisa,

    What awesome words today, I so often make God too small, when I don't see a way out, I think God can't see a way out either,yet He still never stops amazing me when He rescues me from what looks liek an impossible situation.

    Blessings Lisa.
