“Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying: Who should I send? Who will go for Us? I said: Here I am. Send me.” (Isaiah 6:8, HCSB)
Isaiah saw something only a few people have been allowed to see. It was a vision, but nonetheless, it was a remarkable sight indeed. In his vision, Isaiah was allowed to peer into the throne room of Heaven. He described it as best he could. I'm certain that he must have felt like his words did not do justice to the things he saw.
Isaiah heard something. He heard the voice of the Almighty. It was a voice that seemed to shake all of creation, even Heaven itself. And the voice of the Almighty asked a simple question, "Who will go for us."
Isaiah responded, not out of arrogance, but in humility. I'm sure that Isaiah was so struck by what he saw and heard in that vision that he was ready to answer the call of the Almighty. He was ready to be an instrument of the Lord and to proclaim His righteousness to the world. He was ready to point people to the Great Redeemer. Isaiah's simple reply was, "Here I am, send me."
Are you ready to go where the Almighty sends you? We often ask, "Where, Lord?" Or, we ask, "What will it cost me?" Or we ask, "For how long?" Or we want all the details of how we will get there. God is searching for those, like Isaiah, that are simply willing to go as He directs.
