Out text will come from Isaiah 6 verse 8. Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for us? Then said I, Here am I; send me.
God wants someone to go preach to his people. They had been deteriorating morally and soon they would be taken captive because of it so the Lord wanted someone to warn his people of the consequences if they continued their disobedience. Isaiah then says, “Here am I; send me.”
Isaiah made himself available.
This wasn’t about his abilities but his availability.
Always remember, when the Lord wants someone for his service he knows your abilities so he knows what you can and cannot do. When he asks for volunteers he is not so concerned about your abilities but your availabilities. That is, are you willing…not are you able? The Lord can take care of your inabilities. He fed 5000 with a little lad’s lunch of 3 loaves and two fishes. You say, “I can’t do very much” but little is much when God is in it. That’s the name of an ole song we sing at church.
The point of this lesson is that the Lord is looking for those that will go; so the question is not, can you go, but will you go?
Is anyone available?
Whom shall I send, and who will go for us?
