Do you feel the world is broken? Do you feel the shadows deepen? But do you know that all the dark won’t stop the light from getting through?
Is anyone worthy? Is anyone whole? Is anyone able to break the seal and open the scroll? The Lion of Judah who conquered the grave. He is David’s root and the Lamb who died to ransom the slave.
Is he worthy?
Does the Father truly love us? Does the Spirit move among us? And does Jesus, our Messiah, hold forever those he loves? Does our God intend to dwell again with us?
The words above are lyrics from a song by Christian artist Chris Tomlin called “Is He Worthy?” Enjoy it today. Take some quiet time to relax. Don’t be in a hurry. Prepare your mind and heart to reflect on the meaningful questions posed in the song. And the even more meaningful answers.
Then, allow your own mind and hear to ask the questions yourself. Say the words along with the song. Ask, either silently or out loud. Then answer. “He is. He does.” Your soul will be strengthened.
PRAYER: Dear Lion of Judah, who conquered the grave, you are Lord over everything in my life, including shame and death, today and forever. As true as that is, let me believe it and live like it. Amen.
FURTHER MEDITATION: Find the basis for this song in Revelation 5:1-14. Opening a seal is like unlocking a door. You have authority and power over whatever is inside. So, throughout these verses, over what does Jesus have authority and power? In what area of your life today will that give you greater hope and joy?
