Eternal Song

sing praises unto God.jpg

"All the angels were standing around the throne and around the elders and the four living creatures. They fell down on their faces before the throne and worshiped God, saying: 'Amen! Praise and glory and wisdom and thanks and honor and power and strength be to our God for ever and ever. Amen!'" - Revelation 7:11-12

One of the understandings we glean from scripture is that when we leave this earth and are invited into God's Kingdom, Heaven, we will no longer worry about anything. We may think that we will worry about loved ones, things left undone, work, friends, etc. But the reality is, when we come into God's glory and witness the praising of God which continues day and night, you and I will join in the chorus.

Nothing will matter anymore, expect for the praising of God. No one will be on our minds, except for God.

When we enter into heaven, we will desire nothing more than to praise our Lord and Savior, with the rest of the heavenly chorus.

This gives me great assurance and comfort. The songs I sing here on earth, whether hymns or praise songs, are practice for the heavenly song I will sing before God, for all of eternity. Praise God!

As I sing my songs before you, Lord God, whether in a worship service or on my own, let my singing be a rehearsal of the heavenly song I will soon sing to You. Let my every day be a practice, Lord, that when I see You, my song will be well prepared. Amen.
