Here Am I – Send Me

In the beginning of Isaiah’s ministry, he was allowed
to see a vision of God seated on the throne in Heaven.
He was allowed to witness the full majesty of God and
hear His Heavenly praise; “Holy, holy, holy is the
Lord Almighty; the whole earth is full of His glory”
(Isaiah 6:3). The vision of God was so pure and so
holy that Isaiah was immediately confronted with his
own sinful condition; “I am ruined! For I am a man of
unclean lips, and I live among a people of unclean
lips” (Isaiah 6:5).
But God comforted Isaiah by letting him know his sin
had been removed; “Your guilt is taken away and your
sin atoned for” (Isaiah 6:7). God had a purpose for
revealing Himself to Isaiah: He was looking for a
messenger to deliver His Word to the people of Israel;
“Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?” (Isaiah
If we were asked such a question, we might be tempted
to request a few details before answering. We might
like to know where we would be sent and what we would
be doing. But Isaiah had just experienced the full
glory of the Lord. He had seen absolute perfection,
recognized his utter sinful condition, and received
complete forgiveness from a loving Father. With this
understanding of the One who was asking, Isaiah had
only one reply.
Isaiah 6:8 “And I said, ‘Here am I. Send me!'”
Isaiah had no way of knowing his reply would be the
start of sixty years of ministry. He had no way of
knowing the many hardships his answer would cause, nor
the many joys he would experience through walking in
the presence of God; but he knew the One who was
calling… and that was enough!
As a child of God who has seen and understands His
glory, there should be only one response when our
Father calls. There’s no need for lengthy questions
regarding the how, why, or what. When the Creator of
the Universe calls, we can assume He has made a wise
and perfect choice.
God never makes mistakes and will never call us
without also providing the tools to accomplish
everything in His plan: “And God is able to make all
grace abound to you, so that in all things at all
times, having all that you need, you will abound in
every good work” (2 Corinthians 9:8). We have
received His forgiveness and are seeking to abide in
the glory of His presence. We must now learn to trust
Him more and follow wherever He leads.
God always calls the right person for the job and
always provides all we need to fulfill the calling.
When God calls, let’s trust Him and boldly answer:
Here am I – send me!
Have a Great Day!
