Verse of the Day – I hunger for the day when I can see your splendor face to face

Worship the LORD in the splendor of his holiness; tremble before
him, all the earth.
— Psalm 96:9

Don’t you really appreciate the phrase “the splendor of his
holiness” and long to behold that splendor? It conjures up
reminders of Isaiah’s encounter with God in Isaiah 6 or John’s
vision of Jesus in Revelation 1. God’s essence — known in the Old
Testament as his glory and his holiness — can be described only as
splendorous! Our only fitting response is to join the angels of
Isaiah 6 and the twenty-four elders around the throne in Revelation
and worship God and cry, “Holy, holy, holy, is the Lord God
Almighty. The whole earth is full of his glory.”

You are holy, majestic God, more than my mind can grasp or my
imagination can dream. I worship and praise you for your glory,
might, grace, and mercy. I hunger for the day when I can see your
splendor face to face and join the angels of heaven and the
twenty-four elders in never ending worship and praise. Through
Jesus I offer this praise and my life. Amen.

Thank you. Be blessed!
