Layout for the Favorite Bible Story challenge at Faith Sisters.
The bible is full of some absolutely wonderful stories. So many that I have grown to love from when I was a small child in Sunday School.
One of my most favorites is the story of Isaiah in Chapter 6. Isaiah beholds the Lord sitting on His throne... and above are the Seraphim, and they are singing "Holy Holy Holy is the Lord of hosts; The Whole earth is full of His glory!" What an absolutely awesome sight Isaiah was able to see. And his reaction? "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 uncluean lips; For my eyes have seen the King, The Lord of hosts."
Then a seraphim flies to him and touches his mouth with a live coal saying his iniquity is taken away and his sins purged.
However, the part that always gets me this... When the voice of the Lord says "Whom shall I send, and who will go for Us?" Then Isaiah answers "Here I am! Send me!" WOW !!!
I cannot imagine what it would be like to see the Lord face to face. I cannot comprehend the fullness of His glory. I am not even sure I can fully understand how Isaiah could open his mouth and speak like this to the Lord. I imagine that if it had been me, I'd have been silent & afraid. Yet I admire Isaiah here and his desire to do the Lord's will. This story always remains in my heart as a reminder that God will use us and we just need to be ready & willing.
