Revelation 4:6-11
… In the center, around the throne, were four living creatures, and they were covered with eyes, in front and in back. 7The first living creature was like a lion, the second was like an ox, the third had a face like a man, the fourth was like a flying eagle. 8Each of the four living creatures had six wings and was covered with eyes all around, even under his wings. Day and night they never stop saying:
“Holy, holy, holy is the Lord God Almighty, who was, and is, and is to come.”
9Whenever the living creatures give glory, honor and thanks to him who sits on the throne and who lives for ever and ever, 10the twenty-four elders fall down before him who sits on the throne, and worship him who lives for ever and ever. They lay their crowns before the throne and say:
11“You are worthy, our Lord and God, to receive glory and honor and power, for you created all things, and by your will they were created and have their being.”


How incomprehensible and unfathomable is our GOD? How could we, in our small finite minds, even begin to grasp the greatness of His magnitude and being. We need only look at what we know of the tremendous immensity of the universe to realize that out of Him this all came into being and He is ever continually creating, ever expanding and ever increasing.
Can you imagine sitting before His throne and continually seeing new and awesome wonders expressed through our Almighty? No wonder they never tire of falling down before Him and worshipping Him who lives for ever and ever. Casting their crowns at His feet and declaring, “You are worthy, our Lord and God, to receive glory and honor and power, for you created all things, and by your will they were created and have their being.”
Can we even imagine the Spirit and Energy, Power and Dominion, Majesty, Glory and Splendor that radiates from His Being. It would be so much more intense than setting before the sun. Can we even imagine that so great a Being could know, understand and care about your every thought and feeling. When we are but a micron in the scope of the universe and His creation. Can we even imagine that He knew us before the foundation of the world and set us apart for His good pleasure to call us sons and daughters.? Can we even imagine that He has called us to be born into His kingdom and be partakers of His very blood and DNA through the blood of Jesus? He knows ever hair on your head and knows all of your life before you even have lived it. Wow!
When we begin to really think upon and comprehend the tremendous enormity, power, authority and majesty it is no wonder that we could bow in presence, forever amazed, mesmerized and astounded at all that He is and all that exudes from His Being and Presence.
Now we turn and look back at our problems and our challenges and realize they are but puffs of dust in the light of the One whom we serve, love and have been called into identification with. When we see who is behind us how can we ever fear again that which is front of us.
Where are we as believers in Christ in all of this? Ephesians 2:4-7 enlightens us, “But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, 5made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions—it is by grace you have been saved. 6And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus, 7in order that in the coming ages he might show the incomparable riches of his grace, expressed in his kindness to us in Christ Jesus.” Even now we are seated in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus. If I am in Christ who is in God looking down upon what I have perceived as my giants, my giants have now become as ants beneath my feet because of where I am positioned in Him. When we get the eyes and the mind of the Spirit and begin to see our natural world in its light, then nothing is too great or too impossible for our God who lives through us. FAITH just arises when we comprehend who we are in the enormity of the God we love and trust. Our Papa is a far greater force to reckon with than any of the other bad boys we know on the block. So let faith arise and your enemies be scattered. Don’t allow the smoke and mirrors of the present world cloud and obscure your vision from seeing all that our God is in the limited amount that we are able comprehend, understand and know Him.
He is so worthy of our continual awareness, gratitude and worship of all that He is. Allow yourself to go to the place of the living creatures, the host of heaven, the twenty-four elders and just ask the Lord to help you see through the eyes of your imagination and Spirit into that place of such magnificent glory in Father’s presence.
