Who is worthy? For weeks now those three little words have continued to echo in my mind. I have asked God to give me a fresh revelation as I study His final book of Revelation. I am about half way through this study and yet my mind continues to be brought back to these words: “Who Is Worthy?”
John, the last surviving disciple of Christ writes:
Then I saw the right hand of him who sat on the throne, a scroll with writing on both sides
and sealed with seven seals. And I saw a mighty angel proclaiming in a loud voice,
“Who is worthy to break the seals and open the scroll?” -Revelation 5:1-2
I think about my own life and my own concerns. I have a list of ongoing prayers and worries. All of which are beyond me. I can’t handle this, but I know the one who is worthy of handling it all! The Messiah, Jesus Christ!
Do not be weep! See, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has triumphed. He is able to open the scroll and its seven seals. -Revelation 5:5
I write down all my concerns great and small and I roll them up in a scroll like fashion. I tie a string to each end of the scroll. I place a drop of wax onto to seam and place my seal (my thumbprint). I know it is not necessary to go through this type of ritual, but it just feels right. If God can place the weight of the world on a scroll and hand it to the King of Kings, I feel as though I should also hand over the weight of my world and hand them over as well. With my prayer scroll resting in the palm of my open hand, I pray.
“Jesus, I hand this scroll to you. I know you are worthy of handling all my concerns, fears, worries, and uncertainties. Thank you for your nail scared hands, for your sacrifice, and for sealing my destiny for all of eternity. Into your hands, I commit my prayers. I love you too Lord, all the more.”
