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 (NIV)
You can do that. I can do what? You can send me. Not only can you, but I want you to send me. I am at your disposal. I am ready for your use. There is no place I would not go for you. There is nothing that I would not do for you. How do you know that to be true? Well, I’m not exactly sitting around being idle right now. I believe that I have been listening attentively to your call. Have I heard you completely? Probably not. Have I responded to you perfectly? Probably not either. But it is the desire of my heart to be fully used by you. I want to bear fruit for your kingdom. I want to bring glory to your name. One day, I would like to hear you say, “Well done, good and faithful servant.” I want to have fully used all the gifts and talents, abilities and resources you have given to me. I want nothing to have gone to waste. When you and I look back over my life I don’t want to have any regrets. I don’t want to see that I missed great opportunities to have served you. Yes, I can see that in you.
What confidence do you have that you will be faithful and fruitful for me? My confidence does not rest in myself; I can tell you that without a doubt. I am relying on you. I believe that you will make me faithful. I believe that you will make me fruitful. My job is to come to you. My job is to listen to you. My job is to follow you to where you lead me. My job is to do what you ask of me. So, my life and what I think and say and do is in your hands. I am entrusting myself to you. How do you feel about that? I feel very good about that. I am not filled with worry. I am not experiencing anxiety. I am at peace. I am filled with hope and joy. I know that my life is in your hands. You will not allow me to miss what I couldn’t see. You will not allow to fail to do what you have given me to do for you. You will help me to keep on loving and following and serving you. You will help me to accomplish your purposes and fulfill your plans. Yes, I will, you can be sure of that. Follow me. Yes Lord, I am. Yes, Lord, I will. That is very good. Yes, it is. Send me. Yes, I will.
Lord, here I am. I am at your service and ready for your use. I will listen attentively to your guidance and follow your instruction. I will get out of my comfort zone to go and do what you ask of me. Give me your thoughts to think, words to speak and deeds to do. Amen
