Revelation 1:12-13 - John Hagee Daily Devotional (September-29-2022). Then I turned to see the voice that spoke with me. And having turned I saw seven golden lampstands, and in the midst of the seven lampstands One like the Son of Man…
As God unfolded the revelation to John, He showed him seven golden lampstands. In the midst of them was a person so overwhelming that John fell prostrate before Him. The seven lampstands represent seven churches of Asia located in seven different cities. The One like the Son of Man wore a long robe with a gold sash across His chest. His eyes flamed like fire under wool-white hair, and His face blazed like the sun. Just as Jesus stood among the lampstands, the Tabernacle of the Old Testament was situated in the center of the camp in the midst of all the tribes of Israel. When God’s Shekinah glory fell, it radiated to all of His people.
The Lord longs to be at the center of our lives. He is to be our wellspring, the bountiful and beautiful source of all the good that flows in and out of our lives. He aims to be in the middle of our marriages, the hub of our families, and at the center of our churches. When we set our love on Him – make Him the focal point – He promises to rescue us from every trouble, to answer when we call, and to honor us (Psalm 91:14-15). Is He at the center of your life?
Today's Blessing: May the Lord bless you and keep you. May the Lord make His face to shine upon you and be gracious unto you and give you His peace. May you establish Jesus in every concealed corner of your heart as Lord over all.
