I have asked this before: When God calls, do we answer and go? Or do we hesitate and think about it? Great thoughts here from brother James Candler. Comments closed here; blessings and enjoy.
The Lord calls men to serve him to speak to a wicked and adulterous people. Isaiah heard the voice of God. God apparently was speaking to himself. Notice “I” is singular and then “us” which is more than one. Isaiah said that he heard. How many hear the call of God to service and never answer the call? There are many excuses for not serving. None are acceptable to God.
We see that Isaiah knew exactly what he was in the eyes of a righteous and holy God. His declaration, “Woe is me! For I am undone; because I am a man of unclean lips.” He recognized his wickedness and unworthiness to serve. There are none that are worthy to serve God. We find that God will equip those that He calls. The Seraphim with the coal cleansed and prepared Isaiah for service. God cleanses and prepares those that He calls to step out in faith to the service that He has prepared that man to do.…..read the rest of the post here: APRIL 12 – Whom Shall I Send
