In the year that King Uzziah died, I saw the Lord sitting on a throne, high and lifted up, and the train of His robe filled the temple. Isaiah 6:1 NKJV
The day I met Jesus was not very dramatic. The days that followed were incredible. I was at a low point in my life. I was told I needed Jesus. The Spirit of the Lord came over me. I responded to the gospel. I gave my life to Jesus!
The first night of my new life God showed me my uncle Joe prayed for me. A few days later the Lord told me I needed to be baptized.
The first time I went to church I was caught up in worship. My hands went up. “I belong to my father in heaven” came out of my mouth again and again. It was as if someone else was speaking. I was overcome with peace and joy. A great burden was lifted from my soul!
I began telling people God is alive.
God has spoken to me many times over the years. Sometimes He speaks to me in the stillness of the night. Sometimes a word or idea takes center stage in the theater of my mind. Sometimes I am prompted to speak or act. My heart races until I obey.
I have often wondered why the Lord would speak to me? Why would He visit me? Why would He bless me? There is only one answer that makes any sense to me. God can do anything He wants anytime He wants!
The Lord called me His servant. Why would He do that? It pleases Jesus to love me. It pleases Him to love you! We include the people we love in everything we do. Jesus wants you to be a part of everything He is doing!
God is alive. He wants to communicate with you. The Lord wants you to know that He is the God of Heaven and Earth. He can do whatever pleases Him. It pleases Him to have relationship with you. It pleases Jesus to call you His servant.
Will you listen for God’s voice today? When He speaks will you respond in faith and obedience? When the Lord calls you to speak will you speak the words He gives you to the people He sends to you?
The Lord is sitting on His throne today. He is high and lifted up. The train of His robe fills creation. His holiness surrounds Him!
Isaiah was undone by the holiness of God. He confessed His sin. He stepped out in faith.
We all sin. We all fall short of the glory of God. Not all of us are humbled by God’s holiness. All of us are called to serve Jesus. Not all of us submit to the lordship of Christ.
Will you surrender your heart and life to Jesus? Will you serve Jesus all the days of your life?
