Keep The Kippah On
“For the Lamb at the center of the throne will be their shepherd; ‘he will lead them to springs of living water.’ ‘And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes.’”
– Revelation 7:17
Kippah (literally: dome) is the Hebrew word for skullcap. Jewish law requires men to cover their heads as a sign of respect and reverence for YAHWEH when praying, studying Torah (books of the law and the prophets), saying a blessing or entering a synagogue. This practice has its roots in biblical times when the priests in the Temple were instructed to cover their heads.
Quite symbolically, The Kippah is worn at the center point of the head to show that God is the ultimate and that no matter how high your intellect is, it’s still in submission to God.
The center, our core, the seat of emotion and decision making, the throne of our heart, remains the prized possession in the life of a man (male/female)
Romans12 vs 1 says “So here’s what I want you to do, God helping you: Take your everyday, ordinary life—your sleeping, eating, going-to-work, and walking around life—and place it before God as an offering. Embracing what God does for you is the best thing you can do for him. Don’t become so well-adjusted to your culture that you fit into it without even thinking. Instead, fix your attention on God.”(MSG)
Beloved, intentionally and deliberately make sure to keep your heart, will, attention, and mind fixed on the lamb. Living according to God’s plan is your best case scenario.
He is the only one that will lead you to the springs of water, a place of comfort and joy, in the desert of life. He is the only one that will wipe away every tear from your eyes.
Keep Christ on the throne of your heart, this is your best case scenario for this year and the years ahead.
Dear God, Thank you for saving me. I ask you to continue to reign supreme on the throne of my heart. I submit all my thoughts and decision-making process to you. Take the wheel of my life and lead me to the place of comfort, peace, and joy that you have for me.
In Jesus Name I pray. Amen.
