Devotional | Melanie Lenow

  • Evan and I serve in the youth with juniors and seniors. Studying Isaiah.
  • Isaiah 6. Calling of Isaiah. Posts were shaken. House filled with smoke. Undone because I am a man of unclean lips. Lips touched with with hot coal. Sins have been purged. Here am I. Send me.
  • Lord spoke to me and gave great encouragement. Isaiah admitted and acknowledged that he was a man of unclean lips in a people of unclean lips. Goes right into focusing on God and how majestic is God. Then answering “Send me.”
  • No doubt that we are in the same type of culture. Isaiah didn’t dwell on that. Went straight and focused on what the Lord was calling him to do.
  • Acknowledge this is a fallen world, but the Lord has lots for us to do. We can quickly say lets get to work.
