Send Me: Prayer & Fasting – Day 14 – 1-22-2017
Day 14 – Sunday 1/22 – Sermon
1 In the year that King Uzziah died, I saw the Lord sitting on a throne, high and lifted up, and the train of His robe filled the temple. 2 Above it stood seraphim; each one had six wings: with two he covered his face, with two he covered his feet, and with two he flew. 3 And one cried to another and said: “Holy, holy, holy is the Lord of hosts; The whole earth is full of His glory!” 4 And the posts of the door were shaken by the voice of him who cried out, and the house was filled with smoke. 5 So I said: “Woe is me, for I am undone! Because I am a man of unclean lips, And I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips; For my eyes have seen the King, The Lord of hosts.” 6 Then one of the seraphim flew to me, having in his hand a live coal which he had taken with the tongs from the altar. 7 And he touched my mouth with it, and said: “Behold, this has touched your lips; Your iniquity is taken away, And your sin purged.” 8 Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying: “Whom shall I send, And who will go for Us?” Then I said, “Here am I!

When we have found ourselves in the presence of the Lord and been humbled by Him we then understand the state of our un-cleanness. It is easy to be humble when you stand in His presence. You have then positioned yourself to hear His voice. Now what? Well the final week of our fast is centered around what your response will be to His voice.
The days ahead will concentrate on various responses to what He is speaking. It now becomes your opportunity to see how God is speaking to you and what He is instructing or calling you to accomplish. Some of the things which God leads into are great in scale and scope, but most of the things He leads us into are the less glorious, day-to-day type of assignments.
Important for you to remember is that you are a volunteer. God is not going to force you to respond. He is asking that you align your will with His and will then go as an ambassador for Him into a world which is spiritually lost and desperately needs the message you have already received.
Take time to carefully consider this week’s instructions and listen for His Spirit to guide you towards your response to His gentle call.
