“And I saw between the throne (with the four living creatures) and the elders a Lamb standing, as if slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God, sent out into all the earth” (Revelation 5:6).

Seven is the Hebrew number for complete, or as we often say it, perfect.  We may speculate, but what good will that really do for our walk of faith?  The Perfect One, who was slain for our sins, sees all and will not settle until there is no sin left in us.  He means to save us completely.  His Spirit will go to the ends of the earth, and no one will be left behind who comes through faith.  The Lamb laid down His life for us and rose again that we might have His life going into eternity.

Lord, I want to know secrets, but what good will that do?  Instead, help me to realize the incredible feat You have accomplished by dying for our sins.  Guide me in Your goodness and mercy to humbly walk where You would have me walk.  Guide me because You, who see all things, know the way I need to walk.  Lead me in the upward call You have given me to look to You alone.

Worthy is the Lamb who was slain.  You, Lord Jesus, have made possible the salvation of those who believe.  Get me out of the way so that You may continue bringing me ever closer toward the object of my faith until I am complete.  You who see, help me to humbly take Your hand and walk with You all the days of my life.  Alpha and Omega, be close to me as I journey in life this day so that I may be assured of Your ever-present support.  Amen.
