Isaiah 6:2-3 (The Message) Angel-seraphs hovered above Him…and they called back and forth one to the other, “Holy, Holy, Holy, is God…”
Have you experienced a moment of AWE? You looked into the face of your newborn baby, or you sat at the bedside of a dying saint as they slipped into eternity. Isaiah had a revelation of God that inspired such a depth of awe that it changed the trajectory of his life. When we have a strong experience with God, the kind that leaves us breathless, it shuts down our self-reliance and releases us from the never-ending need to fix everything. The Apostle John had a moment of awe (Rev. 1:10-17). Ezekiel had one, too (Ezekiel 1:25-2:1). During Isaiah’s moment of awe, he heard angelic affirmations: 1) God is holy; 2) He is the Lord of hosts; and 3) the earth is full of His glory. Isaiah needed to see God’s majestic sovereignty in the wake of King Uzziah’s death (a place of loss). He needed to know on a deeper level that all power and authority belongs to God. We need to know that, too—especially in times of transition. Lift your heart to God. Ask Him for a fresh revelation, an awe-filled moment. Linger and let the Holy Spirit empower you with truth: He is Lord.
