Sounds of Heaven’s Praise

“Let the heavens praise your wonders, O Lord,

your faithfulness in the assembly of the holy ones.”

~Psalm 89:5 (NRSV).

The covenant nature of the Lord to save, redeem and heal is demonstrable to the farthest star. Heaven too attests to the wondrous praise due God.

It is humanity’s right response too.

It’s interesting that Jesus’ Triumphal Entry into Jerusalem elicited shouts of praise—if not from the people then it would have come from the stones! (See Luke 19:28-40)

All creation awaits the Glory of the Lord. (See Romans 8:19-22)

Imagine the Sounds Now

Finding our way through the threshold of death or rapture, then, we can only marvel now at that vision... and the sounds.

Sounds such as those of the most urgent praise will be due a God that’s altogether faithful—throughout and to the very end... from the very beginning.

Mighty is the might of heaven, but it is only a vestibule for God. Still, it’s the ‘venue’ for eternity and we’ll be there one day.

Joining the praise will be us. Selah.

When We Arrive There

We will sing like angels, our hearts indelibly gorged in praiseworthy thanks for the love of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.

Yes, that will be us if we call ourselves saved into the kingdom of God.

Taking our time to soak up the thought of the atmosphere we’ll one day bear witness to is a feat of human ingenuity that attempts only what the Divine can do. But we’re not cursed for trying. It can only help our worship of God to try.

What a thought to ponder just for a minute or more just now...
