“And the four living creatures kept saying, “Amen.” And the elders fell down and worshiped” (Revelation 5:14).

The Lord has made each creature according to its own kind.  It shall be as the Lord has purposed.  How is it then that we ask Him so many questions?  Why are we so discontented that we do not look to the author of our existence and respond with praise and thanks?  This is the rebellion that will be crushed.  He has called us to reality where we praise Him from whom all blessings flow.  Come then and live into the life for which you were created.

Lord, I do not understand the rebellion within me, nor the reason why I want to be control.  Help me to learn from You how to be content with who You have made me to be.  Help me by Your goodness to know that in You is hope and an eternal future.  Lead me, Lord, and I will follow.  Guide me Lord and I will learn from You.  Let me join the four living creatures in saying, “Amen,” and again, I will say, “Amen.”

Heavenly Father, You are worthy of all the praise and honor within me.  Lead me this day to rejoice in all that You have done, are doing, and will do knowing that You will accomplish all that You have purposed.  Holy Spirit, stir my heart to be in constant worship and praise of the goodness of what has been done.  Lord Jesus, may I give You thanks and praise for the salvation You have accomplished by Your own shed blood.  Amen.
