Caught up in the wonder of God’s forgiveness, God’s majesty, and God’s call for someone to take His message, Isaiah volunteered to serve. Was he expecting the next part of God’s call? “Take my message to people who won’t hear and won’t respond.” Servant leadership can be hard. Ask Isaiah, Nathan, Esther, Moses, Mary, or any of the prophets or disciples. Praying Isaiah’s prayer puts you in good company. Have you heard God’s call? Are you willing to volunteer?
Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?” And I said, “Here am I. Send me!”—Isaiah 6:8
Prayer: Lord, I’ve heard Jesus’ call to servant leadership. I’m willing to follow Jesus and let Him transform me. I don’t know what the future holds, but I trust that You do, and that You will be sufficient for me. Here am I. Send me in Jesus’ name, I pray, Amen.
