Revelation 7:9-17

I often think I would like the perspective of an angel; to see God this moment as He is, outside the restraints of a sinful world. I want to see His beauty and marvel at His majesty. This is the remedy I crave on days when I feel a bit dry and where my pursuit of God seems slow. I wish to see what the angels see knowing such a clear sight of Him would captivate and energize my heart.

One day this dream will come true; I will stand and look at my heavenly Father face-to-face. While now He is seen only as a “reflection,” one day He will be “fully known” (1 Corinthians 13:12). According to Revelation 7, on that day the hearts and voices of the redeemed will pour forth a bounty of praise. However, they won’t be alone. The angels who walked with them, serving and ministering to them during their earthly journey will join their voices with the redeemed, lifting praise in that eternal day. May we yearn for the day when we will see our Father and forever join in bringing Him praise.
