Isaiah 6 In the year that King Uzziah died,
Logan spoke about how this was a big deal with the people of Israel. While a small statement to start the chapter with it means a lot. Uzziah reigned for over 50 year. This was the only leader many people had know. Many people felt lost.
I saw [in a vision] the Lord sitting on a throne, high and exalted, with the train of His royal robe filling the [most holy part of the] temple.
Even with people feeling lost God was still in control.
“Woe is me! For I am ruined,
Because I am a man of [ceremonially] unclean lips,
And I live among a people of unclean lips;
For my eyes have seen the King, the Lord of hosts.”
When we get a glimmer of God we see how low we really are.
Then I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, “Whom shall I send, and who will go for Us?” Then I said, “Here am I. Send me!”
Now you have heard this quoted a billion times. Logan unpacked it this way.
- Something big happens in your life. He focused on someone leaving or being removed that you looked up to. For him is was his pastor. His pastor helped him get the place with ACMNP. His pastor encouraged him with his faith. Logan looked up to his pastor greatly. Logan’s pastor got caught up in something that he shouldn’t have been in and was removed from his position. Logan’s pastor was his King Uzziah. Who or what is your King Uzziah?
- In turning to the Lord we can feel so small and worthless especially when we are dealing with our King Uzziah moment.
- Being in our King Uzziah moment and feeling so small if we trust and reach out to God he can use us. Here I am. Send me.
