The Ancient of Days

Standard

Devotion:  Daniel 7:9-12, 21

Picture with me Daniel’s amazing vision, described in this book of prophecy.  Thrones were placed, as the Ancient of Days takes His seat.  Thrones always represent kings and authority, but the main attraction is focused on the Ancient of Days, King of kings and Lord of Lords.  His gleaming clothes radiating with reflective, bright white and His hair, as white as pure wool.  He is the perfect, spotless Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world.  His throne is engulfed in fiery flames and the wheels are burning as well. A stream of fire; sets Him apart, as it streams out before Him.  Our God is a consuming fire.

A thousand thousands served Him and ten thousand times ten thousand stood before Him.  This is the court of all courts, the judgement seat of Christ and the books are opened.  War was made with the saints and it seems they were losing, until the Ancient of Days came. Until the Ancient of Days!  Then the saints possessed the kingdom.

Everything changes with the Ancient of Days.  His ways are higher than our ways. His thoughts are higher than our thoughts.  His purposes and plans have always been established for the children of the Most High God.

No matter the degree of trouble and conflict in your life, the Ancient of Days is “still on His throne, where He’s been all along and He knows what is going on.”  My former Sunday School teacher, Danny Benton used to quote that little rhyme.  As time marches forward; we can rest in this fact, the Ancient of Days will always show up; right on time, both now and in eternity.

In Motion:

You can absolutely trust in the Ancient of Days.
