You are high and lifted up
seated above the heavens
Today we come to the end of sharing the first song on our latest CD,Before Your Throne. It is the title track entitled, I Stand Before Your Throne (click track title to play song).
God is the friend who sticks closer than a brother. He is our Redeemer. He is our Shepherd and so much more. The focus for today is in knowing that God is Holy.
In God's word, we are instructed to be holy, because He is holy. Our existence is not random, nor was it an accident. God knew who He was creating, and He intended for each one of us to receive holiness. When we choose to worship, obey and serve Him apart from all that the world demands, we experience the holiness of God.
Because God is holy, He is high and lifted up. This is just another expression that points to HIs magnificence. Our goal is to strive for holiness in order to give honor to the One whose name is Holy.
For thus says the One who is high and lifted up, who inhabits eternity, whose name is Holy: “I dwell in the high and holy place, and also with him who is of a contrite and lowly spirit, to revive the spirit of the lowly, and to revive the heart of the contrite. (Isaiah 57:15)
Who has ascended to heaven and come down? Who has gathered the wind in his fists? Who has wrapped up the waters in a garment? Who has established all the ends of the earth? What is his name, and what is his son's name? Surely you know! (Proverbs 30:4)
O Lord, You are high and lifted up. Thank You for coming down to earth to save us. Help us to be holy, as You are holy. (1 Peter 1:16) Amen.
