You’ve never met someone directly who had been to the heavenly throne room, standing before the Lord. Isaiah did all that, as you can read in Isaiah 6. Isaiah 6 is a microcosm for the entire, wonderful book of Isaiah, as to the reaction God desires to have from everyone. It is a saving reaction. It is expected by God. You can read it yourself and experience it yourself through the Word of God. That’s what God wants you to do with that chapter. Standing in the heavenly presence of God should be a life-changing experience. Nothing can top it. When Isaiah saw it, it transformed him. Maybe you’re thinking, if God would do that for me, then I would be changed too. You’re not going to have the same experience as Isaiah except through reading Isaiah, and you are supposed to react like Isaiah did, as if it was you who did experience it. I’m saying you experience it through scripture. You’ve been there if you read it and then apply it to your life. The essence of Isaiah’s reaction was humility and surrender. He said, “Here am I Lord, send me.” It reminds me of Paul seeing Jesus on the road to Damascus – similar reaction – “Lord, what wilt thou have me to do.” This is a believing response to the Lord, giving in to Him as God and as Lord. You know He’ll save you, but you’ve got to give Him your life. Is that true of you?
