“And every created thing which is in heaven and on the earth and under the earth and on the sea, and all things in them, I heard saying, “To Him who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb, be blessing and honor and glory and dominion forever and ever” (Revelation 5:13).
It is about the Lord. We have been given awareness and the ability to deny reality and think it is about us, but it is always about the Lord. All of creation centers in the One who made it. Who knows, but could it be that the whole of what we call matter and energy was created for the express purpose of singing praise to the Lord? There are the many who are in rebellion. They seek their own. Where are you? Are you amongst those who bless the Lord, or those who curse their fate?
Lord, I have been called by You to come into Your presence and live as one who has been created by You. Not only that, but You have redeemed me as Your reborn disciple to walk on the journey of becoming like You. Lord, I know the rebellion, for it is in my heart. Guide me to walk according to Your ways and know the goodness of Your grace and mercy. Lead me toward You, the Creator of all things.
Lord, teach me to join Your creation singing Your praises. You are worthy of all the honor and praise within me. You are the One who created me. Lead me in praise and worship. Lead me away from rebellion and seeking things for myself. In all things, guide me according to the purpose for which I have been created. Lead me, Lord, and grant me a willing heart that will follow You to the end and beyond. Amen.
