Revelation 14:7 (NLT)
“Fear God,” he shouted. “Give glory to him. For the time has come when he will sit as judge. Worship him who made the heavens, the earth, the sea, and all the springs of water.”

Observation:  The angel goes throughout the earth proclaiming the Good News. In the midst of the battle, the question is who is in charge? Who will win the day? How will he rule?
The angel gives the answer regarding the way things are supposed to be, and will one day be, in God’s timing.
Applic:  Who do I fear, reverence, respect, adore? To whom do I give glory, honor, blessing, praise? Is it the one who judges? Is it the one who made heaven and earth? Sometimes. And at other times I am self-centered, lustful, greedy, doubting, fearful, lazy. In other words, I show myself loyal to the enemy of God by my sinful actions.
Prayer:  Lord, I want to want to be in awe of you. But, I too often do what I wish I would not do, and don’t do what I wish I did. I want to want to give you glory, but I don’t. Help me to be faithful to you and you alone. Help me to honor you in word and deed. Help me to be self-controlled. I give you my life this day. May I be Spirit-led. In the name of Jesus.
