Holiness, Humility, Service

Isaiah was a prophet of God. He had dedicated his life to serving Him. Yet he still was overwhelmed by the vision he received. In fact, after this revelation, everything changed.

He “saw the Lord sitting on a throne, lofty and exalted.” God was surrounded by seraphim who called out, “Holy, Holy, Holy, is the LORD of hosts, the whole earth is full of His glory” (vs. 1-3).

He felt the foundations of the thresholds tremble at God’s voice. Overwhelmed, Isaiah was completely humbled. He realized that he was “a man of unclean lips,” living “among a people of unclean lips.” Why? “For my eyes have seen the King, the LORD of hosts” (vs. 4-5).

Even though he was unworthy, Isaiah felt a seraphim touch his mouth with a burning coal, saying, “Your iniquity is taken away and your sin is forgiven” (vs. 6-7). Isaiah felt cleansed and accepted. He was not deserving, but God had forgiven him!

Then, God brought him one level deeper. He asked, “Whom shall I send, and who will go for Us?” Isaiah realized that God was looking for someone who did not live for this world, but who was willing to serve Him unconditionally, seeking first His Kingdom. He responded, “Here am I. Send me!” (v. 8)

All around us, we see religious people who know about God, who read the Bible, pray, and attend church. But how many have a personal, intimate relationship with God? How many truly have been transformed by His presence?

Today, don’t be content with the ordinary. Ask God to transform your life. Go deeper in your relationship with Him. Remember, He is with you and longs to fellowship with you. Open up your heart. Talk with Him. Seek Him. Worship Him. Dedicate your life to serving Him.
