As I was in church standing before the Lord in a posture of worship the Lord showed me a picture.
I was walking towards the throne of God, the Holy of Holies, in all of my smallness. I was picturing what the throne of God and what it must look like as John described it in The Revelation, Chapter 4, so powerful, so mighty, overwhelming, so BIG! As I was walking down this long pathway there were people standing on the sides of it. These people needed Jesus, they had needs, they were hurting. I would leave the path to comfort a person and as I was comforting I would take a quick peak up at the throne and it would become smaller. I would get back in the path, eyes towards the throne and the throne became mighty and bigger than life again. I would again, get off of the path to be about someones hurt, eyes on need to eyes on the throne and the throne would become small again. I would get back on the path, eyes on throne and it became so grand again. Distracted again by the people on the side I would go care for a person but learned as I was tending to a need, hugging someone, I kept my eyes, my face towards the throne at all times and it stayed being as amazing and BIG as our Father is. The second I turned away, He would become smaller in my eyes. I learned to stay on the path and encourage people to look up and see for themselves His mightiness! Eyes always fixed on the Throne of God.
So, I got out of this picture that if my face isn’t turned towards Jesus, the Throne of God, at all times even in my or someone else’s distress that it becomes about that ‘thing’ that is causing pain instead of the One who can do something about it. It is all about HIM, everything, and it’s up to me to keep Him BIG on that Throne because He is God, never changing. In my eyes if my focus isn’t towards Him then He becomes small in my mind.
I love when He gives us a little glimpse of Himself and how He is, Mighty and Never changing, and yet in my flesh what I can make Him to be in all my humanness. Thank you Lord!
