A Daily Devotion for Thursday, Nov. 12


Isaiah 6:8-10


verse 8: Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?” And I said, “Here am I. Send me.”


Verse 8 is pretty clear to me. Isaiah answered God’s call. And, he answered it before he knew what he was being asked to do. The sequence of events strike me this morning. He didn’t ask God to tell him what his purpose was, or what God expected of him. He first said, “Here am I. Send me!” If I really dig deep and imagine God in my heart sending me off on a mission, I probably would think a lot about it first, and ultimately decide whether or not to do it. That’s how I roll. I am in most circumstances an over-thinker. Granted, Isaiah was hearing the Lord’s voice. Our communications with God are not always that clear. Still, there is a lesson here for me. My heart must be fully open to God, my ears always listening for Him. And I need to be ready to say, “Send me.”


Holy Father, I will listen more closely for you, and will be ready for you. Send me, Lord. Amen
