If We Really Experienced Gods Holiness

Isaiah was stood in the temple, probably the largest building he had ever been in. Then there was movement and spiritual beings entered crying out ‘Holy, Holy, Holy is the Lord of hosts’.

What had made them tremble? What caused them to cry out in such a manner?

Isaiah describes what they saw. The Lord, on His throne, high and lifted up, with the train of His robe filling the temple. Imagine if you will how just a glimpse of the edge of the train of His robe had them completely overwhelmed. A glimpse of the holiness of God was enough to have angels trembling and bring Isaiah to his knees and feel ‘undone’.

Two questions are on my mind…

What if I really experienced the holiness of God? 

What should my life really look like in the light of His holiness?

I am undone yet I am thankful.

I am aware of my failings yet I am ready to change.

I know that my life needs to reflect His holiness. In the way that God is pure, perfect and separate, my life should model the same. My life is one that aspires to be pure, perfect and separate. To have a walk that pleases God.

Such a life is impossible without faith to live it and the Holy Spirit to lead me.

What do you think?

Is God On Your Case?

Are you ready for being in God’s house tomorrow?

Are you ready for God to whisper?

Are you ready for God to speak into your heart?

Is God on your case? I have been reading (for the second time) the book by Bill Hybels called ‘The Power of a Whisper’. I am definitely challenged to put myself in the position where I hear from God. He is on my case, and I love it. I need that. A nudge from God is worth more to me than anything else.

There is no clear given way that God will speak to me. Through His written word, through the preached word, through the Holy Spirit. I have learned to just keep myself alert to hearing what He wants to say. Then having heard, I need the courage to respond.

I feel an urgency towards a greater sense of holiness. I have no clue what that means for me but I am excited. My desire is to live a life that is wholly devoted to my God, to be led by Him, guided through each day and to know His presence more. As the Apostle Paul wrote, ‘ to be filled with the fullness of God’.

What is God saying to you? How is God prompting you ? Listen, hear and have a willingness to respond. I think it will be worth it.
