So much time on this fallen Earth I feel like I’m coming undone.
Maybe that is why I was drawn to the song “Throne Room” by Kim Walker Smith. With phrases bathed in the glory of God, the weight of His name (not the weight of the sinfulness in our culture) and the falling on our face to honor Him (instead of the falling away to earthly desires).
I imagine the Throne Room to be a place where you come undone and feel completely whole all at the same time. To experience an uncontainable fire burning from within. All the fear falls away – only His perfect love remaining.
Chapter 4 of Revelation gives a beautifully descriptive explanation of the Throne Room: the One sitting there with the appearance of jasper and ruby, a rainbow shining like an emerald, and elders dressed in white with gold crowns.
Flashes of lightning, rumbling and peals of thunder, and in front of the throne are a sea of glass, clear as crystal. It all really is too much for our simple minds to begin to imagine.
But it doesn’t end there. Day and night, the living creatures around the throne never stop saying, “Holy, holy, holy is the Lord God Almighty, who was, and is, and is to come.”
It is a never ending song of praise and honor to the One who is seated on the throne. The weight of His name, the burning fire within us, the falling on our face and being overcome by the One.
But first, we must run to the Throne Room.
I invite you to listen to the song and meditate on the words. Picture yourself, in this Earthly world, dropping the weight of stress, of sin, of day-to-day living.
Letting go of it all, handing it over to the One.
But don’t just stop there, start running.
Run into His presence, into His love, into the weight of Him. Fall down on your face at His feet and begin giving Him the glory, saying, “’Holy, Holy, Holy are you Lord.”
Be overcome with the eternal perspective, the splendor of the Throne Room.
