Week Twenty-One, Day Five

What Goes On in Heaven

As you study today, don’t get too hung up on details that you don’t understand. This passage simply describes the worship that takes place at God’s throne. As you study, try to put yourself in this picture. Think about the attitude of the worshippers, the intensity of emotion, and what the atmosphere surrounding God’s throne must be like. If this is the response of the elders and angels around God, imagine what it must be like to see God. How does the worship scene described in these verses compare with what takes place in your heart on a daily basis?

  • Tell God why you worship Him and explain to Him what you wish were different about the way that you worship Him.
  • Commit to worship God in submission and obedience.

The Weekend

Suggested Reading: Isaiah 6 and Judges 6-8

The first passage is the story of the commissioning of the prophet Isaiah, and the second is about Gideon, the warrior. Both describe the response of a man to the presence and instruction of God. As you read, think about your worship. Are you giving God His worth by responding appropriately to Him?

Isaiah worshipped God his entire life. Gideon worshipped God for a season, then later he turned away from God and he led others to turn away from God. Which kind of worshipper are you?
