Occupied with Praise
They rest not day and night, saying, Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty. Revelation 4:8
It is surely an erroneous supposition for humans to think or to believe that death will transform our attitude and dispositions.
This is what I mean: If in this life we are not really comfortable talking and singing about heaven and its joy, I doubt that death will transform us into enthusiasts! If the worship and adoration of God are tedious now, they will be tedious also after the hour of death.
I do not know that God is going to force any of us into His heaven. I doubt that He will say to any of us, "You were never very interested in worshiping Me while you were on earth, but in heaven I am going to make that your greatest interest and your ceaseless occupation."
Perhaps, but in the heavenly scene John describes, the living creatures crying "Holy, holy, holy!" rest neither day nor night. My fear is that too many of God's professing people down here are resting far too often between their efforts to praise and glorify the living God!
Lord, may my entire lifeincluding this very daybe a sacrifice of worship to You so that I am well practiced in worshiping You when I arrive in heaven.
Mornings with Tozer.
