Because children have abounding vitality, because they are in spirit fierce and free, therefore they want things repeated and unchanged. They always say, "Do it again"; and the grown-up person does it again until he is nearly dead. 

For grown-up people are not strong enough to exult in monotony. But perhaps God is strong enough to exult in monotony. It is possible that God says every morning, "Do it again" to the sun; and every evening, "Do it again" to the moon. 

It may not be automatic necessity that makes all daisies alike; it may be that God makes every daisy separately, but has never got tired of making them. It may be that He has the eternal appetite of infancy; for we have sinned and grown old, and our Father is younger than we.

- Gilbert Keith Chesterton (1874-1936)


Talk about worshipping YHWH and oftentimes people get tired of singing the same song of worship over and over and over again. 

Well, it has been said that about 2/3 of your brain power is being used by Vision/Eyes and vision relation conflictive functions. 

Now think about the HEAVENLY creature in Ezekiel 10:12 whose body is full of eyes...that would probably be the most intelligent creature ever made, because you would definitely need a lot of brain power to process all that vision feed, yet these HEAVENLY creatures only have one thing to say day and night worshipping God. HOLY

And yet we “adult” humans think it’s so boring to worship God with the same words again and again. 

The God whom the bible says “no one can fathom His understanding”. Isaiah 40:28 

Perhaps the revelation of that God in our lives is so stale it bores us out.


Would you ask the Lord for a fresh revelation of YHWH today? It will change your life. It will reignite the fire of worship. It will re-purpose your destiny and re-order your priority.
