 Revelation 4:8-11

Each of the four living creatures had six wings and was covered with eyes all around, even under its 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, 10 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: 11 “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.”

 

      The book of Revelation offers us a rare glimpse of the worship that takes place around the throne of God in heaven. The dwellers of heaven show us that it is not possible to refrain from worshiping God once you have given yourself to him and really behold his face. They have the unique advantage of not being hindered by the veil that separates us from God for our moments on earth, but through Christ we are promised that one day that veil will disappear for us also and we shall see God face to face.  We can at times, mostly during our low times, (when we think that God is not treating us fair or that we are being picked on by God), we may think that God is unkindly or unfaithful. When these times occur it may be a good thing to remind ourselves of the truths about God that the voices in heaven raise in praise.

>That the Father is Holy, the Son is Holy, and the Spirit is Holy.

>That God is almighty: no one has more power than he does.

>That God is eternal: he has always been, he is now, and he will always be.

 

        When we fear that God may not be strong enough to save us from our current predicament these truths will remind us that the mighty arm of God is not too short to save, that this mighty God can draw us out of our self-centered darkness into the full light of His presence. That even in our lowest times we should lift our voice in honor and praise, and in lifting our voice we will sense our own darkness disappearing and the presence (light) of God infiltrating our soul encouraging us for one more day, then one more after that until we see His our God face to face.
