“We shall behold Him, Oh we shall behold Him, face to face in all of His glory!” Have you ever simply ached to see a loved one, one whose face is so dear to you that it is emblazoned forever on your mind? Oh what happiness the sight of that dear face would bring to you. I sat to write the devotion and had a thought but my earphones invited me to put them in and listen to their offering. I am so affected by music, it can make me happy, or drag me to the depths of depression, but if it’s worship music I am at the Throne of the Almighty, hands raised and praising Him in the beauty of His Holiness. The first strains of the music brought the vision of a loved face that I haven’t seen in the flesh but I know it so well, it is the face of Jesus. As the music started the tears already standing ready on the rims of my eyes began to roll, We Shall Behold Him! He is the One that heals our broken hearts and binds our wounds, we read that in Psalm 147:3. As I was standing with the throngs in front of the Throne, Total Praise began “You are the source of my strength, You are the strength of my life, I lift my hands in Total Praise to You”. Then, “For every mountain You’ve brought me over for every trial you’ve seen me through, for every blessing halleluiah for this I give you Praise!!! For every mountain you’ve brought me over for every trial you’ve seen me through, for every blessing halleluiah for this I give you praise!” I am at the Throne singing, crying, feeling washed and release from the past few weeks of heartache and trouble fades as I look into His wonderful face. Now I stand and sing as Revelation 4:9-11 “Every time the Animals gave glory and honor and thanks to the One Seated on the Throne—the age-after-age Living One—the Twenty-four Elders would fall prostrate before the One Seated on the Throne. They worshiped the age-after-age Living One. They threw their crowns at the foot of the Throne, chanting, Worthy, O Master! Yes, our God! Take the glory! The honor! The power! You created it all; It was created because you wanted it”. 5:12 says, “Worthy is the Lamb who was slain to receive power and riches and wisdom, and strength and honor and glory and blessing!”
Let God renew your strength. Just like we have to charge the battery in our phone, or computer, we need to take the time to plug ourselves into the power that only exists in the Throne Room of God, to be re-charged so that we can face another day, re-vitalized so that we can be a help to those who look to us for their needs.
