Isaiah 6:1-5 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."

I don’t think most people even realize who God is: we use that title so loosely any more. In Isaiah, we see where Isaiah was blessed with a privilege of seeing a veiled image of God. He’s so majestic that He is lifted high on His throne and His robe fills the Temple. He is so holy that the seraphim are covering themselves from head to toe before God. He is so glorified that those angels cry out “Holy, Holy, Holy...” in such a way that it shakes the place and it fills with smoke. He’s so powerful that Isaiah said, “woe is me” which translates to “I am dead”.

If this depiction does not leave you in aw, you have some searching to do. If it does, stop praying to God in a manner not fitting for His majesty and think about this description before you pray.

Now, imagine that it is judgement day, and your standing before this throne. The throne that Isaiah, a man far better than any of us, said, “I am dead”. Imagine your there, and it’s judgment time. What would you wish you could change? What are you afraid He will be unpleased with? Now you know. Now is the time to change, and you know what to change. It’s not good enough to cry out to Him, but not act upon that cry. Go for it today!!
