DAILY DEVOTIONAL READING
Taking The Initiative
From our text, we discover that there were many creatures in the presence of God when God asked the question, ‘Whom shall I send? And who will go for Us?’ This question was not directed to anyone in particular but Isaiah stepped out from the ranks to become a voice for God in his generation. He answered. ‘Here am I, send me’ v8. All Christians should take the initiative of presenting themselves to God for service. A study of the Scriptures will reveal some many people who stepped out spontaneously to do the work of God not necessarily waiting for a specific call. We are to make ourselves available at every given opportunity to work for God particularly where and when we will not be noticed for human commendation.
Point of Emphasis: Step out from the ranks to make a difference in your church.
Prayer Point: I need your help, Lord, to take initiatives and be creative to meet needs in my Church.
