Isaiah meets God

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!”

Isaiah 6:8

In Scripture, we see that every person God used always was someone who God met. 

God created humans to have an encounter with them. Scripture says that God used to meet Adam in the garden of Eden.

God created man for two reasons:

  1. For the man to meet Him
  2. For the man to represent Him

You can represent God correctly in so far as you meet Him during your day!

In the year that King Uzziah died, I saw the Lord, high and exalted, seated on a throne; and the train of his robe filled the temple. Above him were seraphim, each with six wings: With two wings they covered their faces, with two they covered their feet, and with two they were flying. And they were calling to one another: “Holy, holy, holy is the Lord Almighty; the whole earth is full of his glory.” At the sound of their voices the doorposts and thresholds shook and the temple was filled with smoke. “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.” Then one of the seraphim flew to me with a live coal in his hand, which he had taken with tongs from the altar. With it he touched my mouth and said, “See, this has touched your lips; your guilt is taken away and your sin atoned for.” 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!”

Isaiah 6:1-8

You will never be able to listen effectively to God until you understand that God is the only One Who can take away your guilt, qualifying you to be in His presence. Many times, God can’t use us at our best because we still haven’t understood Jesus’ work. Jesus’ job is to remove everything that came between God and you, driving you away from Him.

Every encounter with the Lord eliminates something from your life: the first meeting removes sin; the other ones remove your awareness of sin. That will be a washing for your life.

The Holy Spirit convicts the sinner of sin, but He also convicts the believer of justice. The Holy Spirit will never come to condemn you, but He will come to convince you. The enemy condemns you through the memory of the sin, but the Holy Spirit convicts you of justice thanks to the memory of Jesus’ sacrifice for you.

Jesus made you righteous. Whenever you feel unjust, go to Jesus: He will adjust you! A person who meets the Lord is qualified to make God’s will. He doesn’t call those who are qualified, but He qualifies those who He calls! When the Lord touched him, Isaiah immediately answered the call by saying: “Lord, send me!”. That touch changed him.

Don’t let anything and anyone rob you of your call. Declare with me: Here I am, Lord, use me! I don’t just want that you touch me, but that you transform me!
