Casting our crowns before the Throne!

Scripture reading for December 4th:  Revelation 4, Psalm 111-12, Proverbs 26

Key Scriptures:  Revelation 4:8-11 “And the four living creatures, each of them with six wings, are full of eyes all around and within, and day and night they never cease to say, “Holy, holy, holy is the Lord God Almighty, Who was and is and is to come!”  And whenever the living creatures give glory and honor and thanks to Him Who is seated on the throne and worship Him Who lives forever and ever, the twenty-four elders fall down before Him Who is seated on the throne and worship Him who lives forever and ever.  They cast their crowns before the throne, saying, “Worthy are You, our Lord and God, to receive glory and honor and power, for You created all things, and by Your will they existed and were created.” 

John was caught up through a door in heaven to behold the throne of God and the worship going on there.  Magnificent living creatures full of eyes and wings worshiped, and the twenty-four elders followed their example.  The One on the Throne is “Holy, Holy, Holy.”  All creation belongs to Him and He alone is worthy of worship.

Faith Confession:  I look forward to being caught up to heaven and to behold My Lord and participate in the worship there.  God Almighty and Jesus Christ are worthy of all glory, honor, and power, for by their Wisdom I have an eternal home.

Proverbs 24:3  “By wisdom a house is built, and by understanding it is established; by knowledge the rooms are filled with all precious and pleasant riches.”

Building your life on the Rock!

Scripture reading for January 11th:  Matthew 7

Key Scriptures:  Matthew 7:24-25  “Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who build his house on the rock.  The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock.”  

To have a home that stands the tests of water, storms, and wind, it must have a strong foundation.  To have a life that stands the tests of the world, flesh, and the Devil, that life must be anchored to the Rock of Jesus Christ.  According to Scripture, Jesus Christ is our Wisdom from God!  (1st Corinthians 1:30) These verses promise everyone a guarantee of a life-foundation that will stand up to any test!  Hearing God’s Word and putting it into daily practice will never fail to anchor our lives to the One who spoke the word in the first place.  His words are true in floods, storms and winds!  This foundation will stand up to anything coming against it.

Contrasting this was the man who built his house on the sand as a foundation. To have a sand foundation was to hear the word of God and ignore obedience.  When the storms came, this fool’s house fell with a great crash!  Jesus was warning against any foundation other than the applied word of God!

Observation for over-comers:  Check the foundation of your life–are you hearing and applying the word of God to all areas of your life?  “By Wisdom a house is built, and through understanding it is established; through knowledge its rooms are filled with rare and beautiful treasures.”  (Proverbs 24:3-4)
