Isaiah 6, Psalm 90, Ephesians 6 (NIV)
Isaiah is worshipping and has a vision of God.
“I saw the Lord, high and exalted,” And the heavenly seraphim were calling out to one another “Holy, holy, holy is the Lord Almighty; the whole earth is full of his glory.”
And Isaiah is astounded with the glory, holiness and power of the Lord Almighty, while at the same time he is overwhelmed by his frailty as a sinner.
But the wonderful happens, he is amazed as the Lord’s seraphim says “your guilt is taken away and your sin atoned for.” Then something more amazing occurs, the Lord speaks to him saying, “Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?” And I said, “Here am I. Send me!” 9 He said, “Go and tell this people:…”
Thus, Isaiah is called and sent into ministry with a compelling mission. It’s a most difficult calling and mission, which you can read. Yet Isaiah ended up bringing incredible messages of the promised Messiah and Jesus patterns his ministry after the Messianic passages in Isaiah. The book of Isaiah was very significant to our Savior.
Psalm 90 reveals the prayer of Moses, the greatest prophet of the Old Testament. Think of the Exodus of Israel from Egypt and Moses their prophet-leader as you read it. It’s a Psalm of worship.
Jesus is the greatest Prophet of all and Paul ends Ephesians 6 with this awesome statement and prayer, “Grace to all who love our Lord Jesus Christ with an undying love.”
Earlier, in verse 10, we read the point of Ephesians 6, “Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power.”
This day I encourage us all, “to Be strong in the Lord, love Jesus with an undying love, and pray in the Spirit on all occasions.” In such worship, love, and devotion we listen for the call of God.
Know that the Lord will speak into our lives, your life and mine and anyone who waits upon the Lord.
