ISAIAH 6:3 “And they were calling to one another: “Holy, holy, holy is the LORD Almighty; the whole earth is full of His glory.”

The basic sense of the word “holy” is to be “set apart from that which is commonplace, special, unique,” and I believe that it is so important for GOD to have this “holy”, special place in our hearts as we follow Him. We must learn to fear Him and understand the true nature of GOD before we can accurately see ourselves! There is absolutely no one that “deserves” an audience with the perfect and HOLY KING of the universe. We are all unclean, as Isaiah realized, and unworthy of YAHWEH’s attention and compassion, but that does not stop Him from responding to us in kindness, love and mercy!
This is what makes Him holy! He doesn’t deal with us as He should. Instead, He deals with us as a loving FATHER who has called us into the kingdom of His Son’s love! I do not know if we will ever be able to fully comprehend the holiness of GOD, but I do think that we can allow Him a holy, special, separate from everything else, reverential place in our lives! We can, and should allow His holiness to define our lives, instruct our worship, and command our morality. That is what we need to grasp as we welcome and surrender ourselves before Him each day.

HOLY FATHER, I do confess that Your holiness is something very difficult for me to understand, but I choose even now to allow it to change the way I view You and myself. I give You a special place in my life as LORD and KING, that will characterize and define all of me and my daily activities. I worship You ABBA FATHER and thank You for revealing Your glory and holiness to me now. Forgive me for all of my unclean ways and purify me through the shed blood of Your holy Son, JESUS CHRIST.  May Your SPIRIT be my constant guide in my desire to live a holy life for Your praise, honor and glory.
In JESUS’ Holy Name. Amen.

Gratefully Sanctified,
