What I Read Today;
Leviticus 3-4; Psalm 39; Isaiah 6; Mark 11; 2 Corinthians 7
Isaiah is staring at something he can’t comprehend. He sees the throne room of God. He is looking at the grandeur and the beauty of the attendants of God flying around God’s throne. Isaiah sees God’s robe filling the floor around the incredible throne. Then he realizes that God himself is sitting there.
What does Isaiah do?
Does he dance for joy?
Does Isaiah run to God?
No, at that moment he realizes how unworthy he is to be in the presence of a holy God. He turns away because he can’t look at God without realizing how utterly sinful he is.
But God has chosen Isaiah. God reaches out and makes him holy. God extends his grace to Isaiah. Isaiah can’t help but respond with a joyous desire to serve God.
Isaiah has just experienced God’s grace and mercy. No one who has truly experienced God’s grace and mercy can ever be the same!
