December 28, 2019: SOAP #3677:  Revelation 5-9

Scripture:  Revelation (NIV) 5:11 Then I looked and heardthe voice of many angels, numbering thousands upon thousands, and ten thousandtimes ten thousand. They encircled the throne and the living creatures and theelders. 12 In a loud voice they sang: “Worthy is the Lamb, who was slain,to receive power and wealth and wisdom and strength and honor and glory andpraise!” 13 Then I heard every creature in heaven and on earth and underthe earth and on the sea, and all that is in them, singing: “To him whosits on the throne and to the Lamb be praise and honor and glory and power, forever and ever!” 14 The four living creatures said, “Amen,” andthe elders fell down and worshipped.

Observation:  Twodays ago, from Psalm 119:89, the Lord had me consider that His word is Eternaland Universal.  God's word is truth whichhas no beginning and no end.  It istrustworthy in all areas of the universe, all areas of God's creation. 

Today in Revelation 5 we read of Universal acclaim of the Lamb's worth.  Worship comes from all areas of the universe!   It is also eternal for it lasts 'for everand ever.'

Application:  Since I am a part of God's creation, it istotally proper for worship to come from my heart and life.  And the worship that starts in my life inthis life will continue into eternity.   What starts in this life will continue around God'sthrone in heaven.  It will go on andon! 

Prayer:  Heavenly Father, there is not a day I live inwhich you are not worthy of my praise. There is not a breath I take that should not be returned in praise toyou.  May the air in each breath enter mybody to find and become a part of praise and worship to You.  Then may the air I breath out carry with it mypraise and worship to fill my environment with appreciation for you. You areworthy!  Amen
