Isaiah 6:5, 8
Isaiah came before the throne of God humbled, in understanding the gap between imperfect him and perfect and glorious God, and ready to do whatever God willed of him. He didn’t even know if what God was sending him on was a good or bad, easy or tough, mission, but he trusted God enough with his life to go all in committing to carry it out. It turned out to be a not-so-fun hard mission. But Isaiah did not go back on his commitment, even though it would be a hard message with no one getting it except a little remnant.
When You’ve called me, do I have an Isaiah level of commitment? Nope. At the first sign of losing interest, I have started to question if this is really what I was supposed to do. But humbled first, I should trust Your call and direction and continue to carry it out, maybe recommit to my yes and availability and go.
Lord, You have called me specifically to the mission field. After a hard season of losing interest, I want to recommit humbly to Your call and go carry it out.
