A Great Multitude.


“After this I beheld, and, lo, a great multitude, which no man could number, of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood before the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands;” Revelation‬ ‭7:9‬ ‭KJV‬‬


When we stand before God’s throne, we will stand with a great multitude — which no man can number. All nations, all kindreds, all people, in every tongue from across every age will praise God — forever. Every generation from across every age will praise Jesus Christ — the Lamb of God.


Choose to praise God. Choose to worship Christ with the fruit of your lips. Choose to live a life that’s surrendered to Him. Let your heart worship God. Let your life worship Him. Let your talents, abilities and skills honor God. 


Pick up your dormant gifts and follow Christ. Use every gift that God has given you for His Glory. Choose to worship Christ and not your gifts. Surrender your heart to Christ. Let your heart sing of His Goodness. Let your lips praise His Name. Let your gifts praise Him. Choose to surrender every area of your life over to Him. 


Revelation‬ ‭7:9‬ ‭NLT‬‬ declares, “After this I saw a vast crowd, too great to count, from every nation and tribe and people and language, standing in front of the throne and before the Lamb. They were clothed in white robes and held palm branches in their hands.” What’s in your hand? Let your gifts praise Him. Let every aspect of your life surrender to Him.


Choose not to magnify and worship your gifts. Choose not to magnify the things of this world. Choose not to idolize the treasures of this world. Bow before Him. Lay before His throne. Let your life praise Him. Let every area of your heart worship and honor Christ the King.


Surrender your gifts over to God. Every gift that God has planted inside of you has purpose. You have purpose. Your gifts have purpose. You were intentionally created by God for His Pleasure and His Delight. You were created to give God Glory. You were designed to give God Glory. 


Every witty idea, every talent, every gift came from God. Lay your gifts at His feet. Surrender the work of your hands to Him. Present your gifts to Him. You were created to reflect His Glory. Choose to reflect the Character and Heart of Christ the King. Be intentional and surrender your gifts to God daily.


Action:


Let your gifts, talents and abilities Glorify God. Choose to redirect the focus back on to God. Don’t worship the gifts that God has given you. Choose to worship Christ.
