“When He had taken the book, the four living creatures and the twenty-four elders fell down before the Lamb, each one holding a harp and golden bowls full of incense, which are the prayers of the saints” (Revelation 5:8).
The music of praise and the lament of scent rise before the Lord. He hears and senses them all. From old times and from recent times, the saints lift up their prayers to God. Behold the Lamb of God who has taken away the sin of the world. The Lamb, the Judge, the Savior of us all is front and center. Do you come to Him in need and with praise, or are you one who rebels against the ways of the Lord?
You know who I am in my heart of hearts. You know Lord, and You have called me through the salvation You have prepared to come with You, to You, and through You to the place which You also are preparing. Lord, You are the One who must lead. What I know is that I must to take Your hand and follow where You lead. Guide me always in the upward call as Your saint in-the-making.
Lord Jesus, how can so much come through such humble circumstances? Yet, You have spoken and all that exists was spoken into being by You. Let my knees bend before You that I may learn to praise You in all things and come to You for all things. Guide me this day, Lord, in the way of life which You have prepared before me. Help me to humbly walk with You, My Lord and my God. Amen.
