“From the ends of the earth we hear singing:
“Glory to the Righteous One.”
Through this verse God reminded me this morning of a wonderful truth.
Already in heaven His praises are being sung for the full and final triumph that He has achieved. For those who will hear it this glorious worship and thanksgiving is coming towards us. It reaches out to us down the roadway of time to inspire and encourage us onwards – in our journey towards an end that is already certain.
On the one hand our ‘life is now hidden with Christ in God’ (Colossians 3:3) whilst on the other we are on the way to our final fulfilment in Him. As Christians our eternal future is secure in the Lord even whilst our earthly journey has still to be completed.
God is being glorified even now for what He has done in our lives – yours and mine – and in the lives and life of His creation. Whatever our present circumstances, and whatever may happen in the future, God’s victory is permanent and His planned purposes secure. His will will be done on earth even as it has been done in heaven.
Even over the scenes of desolation being described by the prophet a song of praise breaks out – it is the new song of the Revelation – the song of the redeemed. We are a part of that song – even now.
Take a moment to be encouraged and to join in the worship of the Lord in whose hands both you and your future are secure – and glorious – in His love and power.
Yes Father, Yours is the Kingdom, the Power and the Glory – in my life today and forever. Help me to trust You and believe in You as I journey forward with You and to You. Amen.
