Daily Word April 4, 2011 - Isaiah 6:1

Isaiah 6:1
"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."
Our guest speaker, Bro. Jeff Anders, said last night - "Anytime God has ever done anything or used anyone, first he revealed himself to them."  As I thought about that statement, the examples were limitless.  There was Abraham, Moses, Noah, Elijah, Elisha, Samuel, Nathan, Joshua, and so many more.  What a marvelous thought, that before we could receive the battle instructions, first we saw the commander.  One thing that really spoke to me in this verse was the position that Isaiah saw the Lord.  Yes he was high and lifted up and the train of his robe filled the temple - speaking to His holiness (His utter distinctness).  But notice that he was "seated".  He was not standing or walking around.  He was not pacing as though the crisis had caught him off guard or by surprise.  Rather, he was seated, which speaks to his being "comfortable" or "controlled".  He was in complete sovereign control of the crisis.
