“When I saw Him, I fell at His feet like a dead man. And He placed His right hand on me, saying, “Do not be afraid; I am the first and the last, and the living One; and I was dead, and behold, I am alive forevermore, and I have the keys of death and of Hades” (Revelation 1:17-18).
Indeed, we all shall fall on our face in front of the Almighty. Why wait until then to live in the reality that the One who was and is the Holy One? Live in the knowledge that the Lord is lord of all. In that knowledge, continue the journey of learning how to obey all that He has commanded. This is the way it shall be in eternity. Get ready for eternity by looking to the Lord for all things.
Lord, it is a struggle, and this world teaches me to compromise in order to get along. Teach me how to hold fast to faithfulness. Teach me how not to compromise, nor be unfaithful for any reason at all. Lead me to learn how to see things as they are and to do what is right no matter the cost. Lord, You hold he keys of eternity. You have said there is either life with You or eternal separation.
Lord Jesus, King of kings and Lord of lords, You hold all things in Your hands. You know eternity and You have invited me into eternity through You, the One who was slain and rose again. You know the path, for You created it. Help me to look to You for all things. Teach me step by step so that I may learn faithfulness. Guide me by Your Spirit and create in me a new heart that loves all that You command. Amen.
