Power in worship
Isaiah 6:1-4 – I saw the Lord high and exalted, seated on a throne; and the train of his robe filled with the temple. Above him were seraphim, each with six wings: With two wings they covered their faces, with two they covered their feet, and with two they were flying. And they were calling to one another: “Holy, holy, holy is the Lord almighty; the whole earth is full of his glory.”
At the sound of their voices the doorposts and thresholds shook and the temple was filled with smoke.
I am totally fascinated by what Heaven is like. Any passages in the Bible that describe God, and where He is are my favourite. Although, I still find it hard to image what it’s really like. The verse above is a good example of how far it is from our reality.
Seraphim are what we would see as angels. The Bible mentions numerous times that they are by God’s throne, worshiping Him.
I love that this verse gives us an insight into how they worship and the power that their worship to God really has. They worship Him fully, giving Him all the glory. And as they were singing, the doorposts and thresholds shook.
I think a similar thing happens when we worship God. Doorposts and thresholds may not necessarily shake (well, not that I’ve heard of anyway…), but God moves. When we glorify Him with our words, He does a work in us that’s inexplicable.
Whenever I’m struggling, restless or just completely stressed out, and I take the time to really worship from my heart – He pours out a peace like no other. He calms the storm in my heart, steadying me for the situation I’m in.
Don’t underestimate the power of worshiping God. We may not be angels in Heaven with six wings, but God has given us the ability to worship and glorify Him. God can and He will move.
