Verse of the Day – I hunger for the day when I can see your splendor face to face


VERSE:
Worship the LORD in the splendor of his holiness; tremble before
him, all the earth.
— Psalm 96:9

THOUGHT:
Don’t you really appreciate the phrase “the splendor of his
holiness” and long to behold that splendor? It conjures up
reminders of Isaiah’s encounter with God in Isaiah 6 or John’s
vision of Jesus in Revelation 1. God’s essence — known in the Old
Testament as his glory and his holiness — can be described only as
splendorous! Our only fitting response is to join the angels of
Isaiah 6 and the twenty-four elders around the throne in Revelation
and worship God and cry, “Holy, holy, holy, is the Lord God
Almighty. The whole earth is full of his glory.”

PRAYER:
You are holy, majestic God, more than my mind can grasp or my
imagination can dream. I worship and praise you for your glory,
might, grace, and mercy. I hunger for the day when I can see your
splendor face to face and join the angels of heaven and the
twenty-four elders in never ending worship and praise. Through
Jesus I offer this praise and my life. Amen.
