S. O. A. P.
Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional!
Then I saw in the right hand of him who sat on the throne a scroll with writing on both sides and sealed with seven seals.
Few would dispute that the writer is speaking of the Almighty God of the universe as the one holding the scroll in His right hand. The scripture says it was sealed.
There are scores of ideas and theories as to what the Lord has sealed up in the scroll, but certainly it would be similar to what Ezekiel described in his prophecy (Ez. 2:9-10). Certainly all the sorrows of unrepentant souls and the joys of the righteous must have been contained therein. Certainly futuristic sorrows coming to the earth were there. I imagine most of all that you and I are there somewhere in that scroll. The total history of the human race upon this earth must be in that scroll. Our families are there. What we’ve done and dreamed of doing is most likely written there. Any and everything you and I have ever been concerned about is there. Truly today, when speaking of our great Savior, it should be said of Him, “He’s Got The Whole World In His Hand.” So don’t leave your home this AM concerned that no one cares about you, or what you do, or where you’re going, because our God’s got us!
The scroll doesn’t scare me. In fact it assures me that You not only know everything knowable, but You also have my whole world in the palm of Your hand. That’s comforting! Amen
