TRIUMPHANT VICTORIOUS REMINDERS
Inspired by the Holy Spirit

"In the year that King Uzziah died, I saw the Lord sitting on a throne, high and lifted up, and the train of His robe filled the temple."
~ Isaiah 6 ~
Trying to imagine such a vision as Isaiah the prophet experienced is absolutely beyond comprehension. My mind's ability to process logic is 'thrown out the window' as it cannot process my Awesome God. I shake my head with such indescribable explanation in awe of this amazing God Who has adopted me as His daughter through His Son Jesus Christ.
I am still drawn to the vision of the "Lord sitting on a throne, high and lifted up, and the train of His robe filling the temple". He describes the train of His robe; it is not even the robe He wears that Isaiah describes, but the train of His robe.
I imagine that this moment as Isaiah sees such a sight, he must be overwhelmed by the great, awesome indescribable vastness and size of God. As you read further in Isaiah 6, you will read that the angels had to place coals on Isaiah's lips to cleanse his mouth so that he could speak the sight that he was honored to behold.
Writing this devotional today only leads me to my knees in awe of God and His Majesty. He is More than Worthy to be praised. He is more than worthy to be praised when I clean my house today. He is more than worthy to be praised as I do the dishes today. He is more than worthy to be praised as I love on my husband and children today. He is more than worthy to be praised when I interact with others with His compassion, when my compassion runs out. Wow! He is Worthy to be praised no matter what we are going through, or what we are doing, He is Worthy!
Furthermore, as I write of the God Who is more than worthy; when we accept Jesus Christ as our Savior and Lord, He calls us worthy. We should not call ourselves anything else other than that. I hear many Christians say, "I am unworthy". We may be unworthy by the measures of the natural mercy of man; but to God and in His infinite mercy He has called us worthy!
I pray you are encouraged today as I am that the God who cannot be contained even by the heavens is in pursuit of our hearts. He longs for us to draw near to Him, so that He can draw near to us in ways we could never imagine (James 4:8). May we be reminded in the difficulties and the every day 'chores' of life, that He is more than Worthy to be praised.
