Just For Me
In the year that King Uzziah died I saw the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up; and the train of his robe filled the temple. Above him stood the seraphim. Each had six wings: with two he covered his face, and with two he covered his feet, and with two he flew. And one called to another and said: “Holy, holy, holy is the Lord of hosts; the whole earth is full of his glory!”Isaiah 6:1-3.
I read these words aloud to the women’s Bible study I was teaching last week. This portion of Scripture wasn’t new to me; I’ve read it many times before. However this night as I spoke those words I cried.
These verses were not a part of the original lesson but God laid them before me several times that week so I thought the women needed to hear them. As I read “Holy, holy, holy is the LORD of hosts: the whole world is full of His glory”, the tears fell. At that moment the love and gratitude I felt for Him was overwhelming. I sat on that stool trying to gain my composure but the more I read the more emotional I became. I’ve been known to cry a tear or two when speaking of His goodness but this was different. I was humbled before Him to the point that I could barely speak. There was no vision like the one Isaiah had but I knew in that very moment 100% that my God was holy, good and perfect. And I knew that even if no one else got that point it was okay because He had made Himself crystal clear to me. Turns out those verses were just for me.
