Day 1 God is Holy
And they were calling to one another: “Holy, holy, holy, is the Lord Almighty; the whole earth is full of his glory.” - Isaiah 6:3
The Hebrew word for holy is “qadowsh” and means “sacred” and “set apart.” God is truly nothing like anything or anyone. “There is no one holy like the Lord; there is no one besides you; there is no Rock like our God” (1 Samuel 2:2). Seeing this word repeated also suggests there is emphasis and importance to this attribute of God. It is the only attribute that is repeated three times in one sentence. It also points to who God is: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. All are Holy as they are all God.
Suggested Guided Prayer Focuses:
- Imagine that you saw “the Lord, high and exalted, seated on a throne, and the train of his robe filled the temple” (Isaiah 6:1). God, you are holy, holy, holy. The whole earth is full of your glory! Father, you are holy. Jesus, you are holy. Holy Spirit, you are holy. I declare you are like no other.
- Reflect on how God has revealed his holiness to you. In what ways can you remember being in the presence of His glory? Take a few moments to give thanks to God for those times.
- Write down your thanksgiving in a journal (electronic or paper that you can keep throughout the 21 days of prayer).
- Reflecting on the perfection of God can raise up our own realizations of our imperfections. The enemy would like to twist the truth of the gap between us and God. Thank Jesus throughout the day for what He did for you to eliminate that gap.
- Take any thoughts captive that sound “negative” to you and focus on the holiness of God. Let His perfection and holiness draw you out of darkness and into His glory.
- Listen to your favorite version of “Holy, Holy, Holy” and write down anything God is saying to you.
So glad we have the opportunity to press into this journey together in growing to know our Holy God!
Thank you for the opportunity to provide focus on prayer for 21 days. I am on my way!
Glad we get to join you on the journey Cindy!
When I read "Imagine that you saw "the Lord, high and exalted, seated on a throne, and the train of his robe filled the temple" (Isaiah 6:1)." and I thought... "That's where Wynnie is right now!" It blew my mind and I just had to tell somebody!
So grateful to God that He used yesterday’s devotional to be such an encouragement to you.
When I first tried to reflect on the ways God has shown His holiness I found it challenging. I can find example of His grace, His mercy, His love easily, but his Holiness... But I realize that His holiness is He offers all that to us, in His perfection, knowing who we are and while we are so unworthy.
