Hello, all! I just want to take the time to apologize to all of you! I have not been blogging for awhile because of the business of the holidays. I am excited to start with a clean slate as 2016 comes around the corner! Lately, I have been reading through Isaiah 6 and have had my eyes opened to how holy our father really is.
I was well aware of His holiness but a reminder was much needed. Last Sunday, I went to an amazing church service that has ignited some of this thinking. Isaiah 6 starts by establishing an image in our minds,
“He was sitting on a lofty throne, and the train of His robe filled the temple.”
A lofty (having great heights) throne. The father we pray to daily is sitting on a throne and a very large on at that! That fact alone puts us in perspective. We are little, tiny things and He is a God filling a lofty throne.
“Above Him stood the seraphim: each had six wings; with twain he covered his face, with twain her covered his feet.”
The seraphim covered their eyes because the Lord’s holiness was too bright to see and covered their feet because they were standing on holy ground. These seraphim creatures were angelic and holy. The fact that, once they encountered God, they covered themselves, is a huge realization of the righteousness of our Lord.
“And one cried unto another, and said, Holy, holy, holy, is Jehovah of hosts: the whole earth is full of his glory.”
In Hebrew, the repetition of words (specifically saying a word three times) is to add emphasis and declare the truth. If God is “Holy, Holy, Holy” then we are “sinful, sinful, sinful”.
The same Lord described in Isaiah is the Lord who lives each breath with us. What if our prayers reflected this holy God. Approaching this glowing, glorified, God is such a special thing that can not be comprehended until we are on our knees with our eyes and feet covered.
