“And one cried to another and said, ‘Holy, Holy, Holy, is the Lord of Hosts—the whole earth is full of His Glory’.”

Isaiah 6:3

It matters not where we look if we look with eyes of faith.

“The whole earth is full of His Glory.”

Such was the message of the seraphim that day as they winged their way through the Heavenly Throne Room.  Created by God to serve Him, these creatures—whose name means “fiery, burning ones”—knew well the Holiness of their Creator and demonstrated it by covering their eyes with two wings, covering their loins with two wings and continuing to serve Him with their remaining two wings.

Simply put, every part of them expressed worship and adoration even as their voices sang praises to Him, “the Lord of Hosts.”

In reality, their praise simply echoed what God Himself had said to Moses that day when He pronounced judgment upon the Israelites for their failure to enter into the Promised Land (Num. 14:21).  Even though they refused to enter in because of their unbelief (Num. 13:26-14:10; Heb. 3:7-19), His Glory would continue to fill the earth.

And, the same is true today—despite what evil men and satan’s forces of evil may say or do.

For sure, spiritual darkness is all around us and growing darker by the day; yet, the Lord God is still on His Throne and nothing or no one can prevent Him from ultimately having His Way (Ps. 2).

That’s why it’s important to stay focused upon Him, not what’s happening around us.  And, an important part of this is joining the seraphim in their anthem of praise by also crying, “Holy, Holy, Holy is the Lord of Hosts—the whole earth is full of His Glory!”

Even when others may disbelieve, decry or distance themselves from us, we must still be faithful in both our practice and our praise.  When we see a beautiful sunrise or sunset, we should say to those who are nearby, “The Lord of Hosts made that!”  When we spy a bird soaring effortless on the wind currents up above, we should point and say “The Lord God Almighty taught him to fly that way.”

Or, when we see a fragrant, crimson rose growing nearby. . .or watch a tiny ant carrying a load twice the size of itself. . .or venture out on a clear, moonlit night while the stars twinkle overhead. . .we should stop, close our eyes and with hushed voice begin singing “Fairest Lord Jesus, Ruler of all nature, O, Thou of God and man the Son.  Thee will I cherish, Thee will I honor, Thou my soul’s Glory, Joy and Crown.”

Yes, dear Pilgrim, “the whole earth is full of His Glory.”  We must simply remember to “stop, look and listen”—for there are burning bushes everywhere.  As the Lord would later say to Isaiah (and us), “In returning and rest shall you be saved; in quietness and in confidence shall be your strength” (Is. 30:15).  Thank You, Lord.  And, help us, O Lord, that we, too, may be full of your Glory so others will come to know Your Son, Jesus, Who lives and reigns forever.
