The Magnitude of the Moment.


“Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for us? Then said I, Here am I; send me.” Isaiah‬ ‭6:8‬ ‭KJV‬‬


In Isaiah‬ ‭6:8‬ ‭KJV‬‬, Isaiah, the Prophet, is standing in the midst of an incredible vision. He is standing in the midst of Heaven, observing the Throne Room of God. While he is in the middle of this vision, he sees the Seraphim (angelic beings) that circle the Throne of God saying, “Holy, holy, holy, is the Lord of hosts: the whole earth is full of his glory.” Isaiah‬ ‭6:3‬ ‭KJV‬‬. 


Imagine this awesome sight. Imagine a vision so mighty that you cannot articulate the words to translate what you’re seeing. Imagine sitting in the Throne Room of God and listening to the Heavenly host declare that He is Holy. 


Imagine seeing these remarkable things. Imagine experiencing a moment in time so majestic and Holy that you suddenly realize and recognize that you are a human — and that you’re standing in the midst of the Holy Operation of Heaven. Look at Isaiah’s response in Isaiah‬ ‭6:5‬ ‭KJV, “Then said I, 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 unclean lips: for mine eyes have seen the King, the Lord of hosts.” 


Isaiah understood the magnitude of the moment. Don’t miss the moment. Don’t be so prideful that you don’t recognize the weight of the moment. Pride will deceive you into believing that you “deserve” to be in this place and space. Cherish the moment. Honor the season. Surrender to God’s timing. Surrender to God’s moment.
