Awesome is the encounter; when God and man commune as one.
Fragile meets Unbreakable, impotent meets Omnipotent at the place of worship; above the Mercy Seat, between the two cherubim.
“There I will meet with you, and from above the mercy seat, from between the two cherubim that are on the ark of the testimony, I will speak with you about all that I will give you in commandment for the people of Israel.”(Exodus 25:22 ESV)
And the four living creatures, each of them with six wings, are full of eyes all around and within, and day and night they never cease to say, “Holy, holy, holy, is the Lord God Almighty, who was and is and is to come, who was and is and is to come!” And whenever the living creatures give glory and honor and thanks to him who is seated on the throne, who lives forever and ever, the twenty-four elders fall down before him who is seated on the throne and worship him who lives forever and ever. They cast their crowns before the throne, saying,
“Worthy are you, our Lord and God, to receive glory and honor and power, for you created all things, and by your will they existed and were created.” (Revelation 4:8 – 4:11 ESV)
God measures the universe by the span of His hand, yet He dwells between the cherubim above the Mercy Seat.
The glory that shines on the face of Jesus resides within my spirit. The cloud that came and overshadowed those on the mountain fills my heart to overflowing. And it’s the same cloud that filled the Holy of Holies when God came down.
“My heart overflows with a pleasing theme; I address my verses to the king; my tongue is like the pen of a ready scribe.” (Psalm 45:1 ESV)
He anoints my head with oil and my hands with fire. He establishes my words and my walk. He clothes me with His Glory; He is the Shield around me and the light within. We have communed, and I am alive!
His power not only sustains me, but also makes me jealous for Him as He is for me.
By His Spirit within me, I have the wisdom to do His will on earth. With His Spirit upon me, I have supernatural, miracle working, life giving love for those around me.
His Spirit restores me, transforms me, pours through me, and even “floors” me. He adores me, and I Him.
In His Presence is fullness of joy; at His right hand are pleasures forevermore.
Worship pours from me like water; cool, refreshing water.
I have no fear, even in His awesome Presence. For He is my peace.
Jesus is my propitiation, my Mercy Seat. He is my worship!
