Isaiah 6:5-8

Then said I, Woe is me! for I am undone; because I am a man of unclean lips, and I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips: for mine eyes have seen the King, the Lord of hosts. Then flew one of the seraphims unto me, having a live coal in his hand, which he had taken with the tongs from off the altar: And he laid it upon my mouth, and said, Lo, this hath touched thy lips; and thine iniquity is taken away, and thy sin purged. Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for us? Then said I, Here am I; send me.


Have you ever thought how God would react to you if you were before the throne of God?


Perhaps you have, with your imagination, assumed some reaction, but it may be a vague picture in your mind. I doubt that Isaiah would have imagined what would actually happen to him. Seraphims filled the space shouting, “Holy, holy, holy, is the Lord of hosts: the whole earth is full of his glory”. Isaiah slumps down at the thundering voice in the shame and humility that felt like a rush over his body. He cries out, “Woe is me!” The assumption that God was too wonderful to behold had become an actual reality. Isaiah was a man who was unworthy to behold what he was beholding. He knew he was an unclean and impure person.


Then the unexpected happened. Instead of the crushing power of an almighty God sweeping down to punish him, one of the seraphims came down to him with a coal in his hand and touched his mouth and instantaneously, from the searing heat of the altar of God, sin and iniquity were purged from him. He knew he had experienced the Grace of God.


When that same God asked for someone to send to proclaim His Word, he said Lord “Here I am, send me.” God needs people who have experienced the Grace of God to cry out, “Here I am, send me.”


What will you say, having experienced the Grace of God? Will you say, “Lord I can’t fully surrender to you, there are a few things from the world just too important to me”? A Believer that has experienced the full Grace of God will surrender career, wealth, and time, all for His sake.


What will you say?


60-0626 - “The Unfailing Realities Of The Living God”

How we've lingered, and have made Him to wait and wait, and wait, trying to find somebody that He could work through, trying to find a man somewhere that He could put confidence in, some man that would surrender everything, come in a sane, sensible way to God, say, "Father, here am I. I—I don't care; I'm going to follow the Scripture, the blueprint. I don't care what anybody else says, I'll stay with it," and really mean it. "I don't care what it cost me, Lord. I'm nothing to begin with, but I want You to lead me. And let the Holy Spirit that wrote this Bible and made these promises, confirm it back through my life. I feel that You're leading me that way." 205  "Here I am, send me," said Isaiah in the temple, when he seen the Cherubims with wings over their faces, over their feet, and flying with wings. And they got a coal of fire and cleansed his mouth; then the Spirit of God come on him. Why can't we? God can't find men like that.
