Isaiah 6

 1 In the year that King Uzziah died, I saw the Lord seated on a throne, high and exalted, and the train of his robe filled the temple. 2 Above him were seraphs, each with six wings: With two wings they covered their faces, with two they covered their feet, and with two they were flying. 3 And they were calling to one another: 
       “Holy, holy, holy is the LORD Almighty; 
       the whole earth is full of his glory.”

    4 At the sound of their voices the doorposts and thresholds shook and the temple was filled with smoke.

    5 “Woe to me!” I cried. “I am ruined! For I am a man of unclean lips, and I live among a people of unclean lips, and my eyes have seen the King, the LORD Almighty.”

    6 Then one of the seraphs flew to me with a live coal in his hand, which he had taken with tongs from the altar. 7 With it he touched my mouth and said, “See, this has touched your lips; your guilt is taken away and your sin atoned for.”

    8 Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?” 
      And I said, “Here am I. Send me!”

Three questions I am pondering:

  1. Do I really hold God in reverence the way He is described in verses 1-4? 
  2. Do I ever properly respond to a Holy God the same way Isaiah does in verse 5?
  3. Do I respond to God’s call to go with a simple “Here am I.  Send me!” as Isaiah did?

Most Holy God, cause me to remember your holiness – how awesome, how holy, how marvelous, how beautiful, how magnificecnt, how righteous, how praise-worthy, how incredible you are – and to see who I am in in light of who you are and respond properly as Isaiah did.  And Father, please help me to be submissive to your calling and will at all times and allow the attitude of my heart to be “Here am I.  Send me!”  I pray in the Striong Name of Jesus and for Your Glory – Amen.
