Each of the four living creatures had six wings and was covered with eyes all around, even under its wings. Day and night they never stopped saying: “Holy, holy, holy is the Lord God Almighty, who was, and is, and is to come.” Revelation 4:8
As the world has many who do not believe God exists at all, there are also many who have different beliefs in who or what God is. Some believe He is just some big cosmic buddy in the sky, others some cruel dictator, others that He is out there somewhere that cannot be found or known, along with that He is everything or some statue.
In a vision John has, he sees four creatures that are continually worshipping God, saying that He is holy and always was, will be and will be to come.
While the world may have many different views of who God is, there are two main things that God is that the world often misses. God is holy and that He always existed and always will exist.
Even in the church there are many who have a misconstrued sense of who God is. Some just see Him as a ticket out of hell, others see Him just as the one to go to for asking for help in time of need, others see Him as the world does a dictator or just as a buddy in the sky.
Realizing that God is holy is the first thing a believer should know about God. This means that there is no sin in Him at all. This gives encouragement, because it means He will never do anything to harm anyone following Him.
The other thing to realize is that He has always been and always will be. This gives Him experience and knowledge in every area of a person’s life to guide in the perfect way.
As a believer, do you recognize the holiness and purity of God? Knowing this can help you trust His guidance in your life. It also gives you the level you are to aim to be at in your life.
God is always there for your and with you and will be with you in the future. He will never make a mistake with you, nor will He ever leave you.
Worship God for His holiness and presence. Who is God to you today?
Today I pray that you will know Jesus as your Lord and Savior; that you will see how holy God is; that you will know God’s presence in your life; that you will know God is always there and always will be there; and that you will trust God with your life.
