"And He Who is seated on the throne said, See! I make ALL things new. Also He said, Record this, for these sayings are faithful (accurate, incorruptible, and trustworthy) and true (genuine)."
This struck me today. Not the "make all things new" part, although that's really good too; but the "seated on The Throne" part. God reminded me this morning that once He's decided to do something, He's not frantically gathering support or evidence to back His desire or action, He's sitting, ON HIS THRONE, at peace with it. He's not running around gathering signatures for the petition, He's sitting, ON HIS THRONE, at peace with it.
That which God has decided to do for me (and for you), He's at peace with. He doesn't need signatures, opinions, suggestions, advice, encouragement, a pep talk, agreement, or proof that it's a good idea. Because the Throne only holds ONE seat; and He's in it. He's decided something, He's sitting ON HIS THRONE, and in peace He will announce it from there. And whatever new determination He announces about me (and you) will be recorded, and will be true.
And might I also add that EVERYTHING, means EVERYTHING. "Everything" includes my (born-again) spirit and my relationship with Him, my physical body will experience newness, my mind and soul, (and all of my processing and filtering systems), and if ALL things really mean ALL things, then even creation (the world as I know/see it) will begin to experience new(er) things of God.
So, thank You Lord, for making a celestial decision, for sticking to it, and for announcing it over my finite world. Amen.
