In the year that king Uzziah died I saw also the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up, and his train filled the temple.
It’s a little startling how Isaiah begins his sixth Chapter.
The King has just died and Isaiah informs the reader that it was this event that led to him seeing God more clearly.
Of course, Isaiah had no hand in the King’s passing, yet the event had such strong ramifications for the prophet.
How many of us would like to encounter God? Are you hungry to see God in all of His glory like Moses was? Let our prayer be that God removes anything in our lives that is stopping us from seeing Him clearly.
This can be our own sin. Pride, fornication, anger, jealousy, disobedience to name but a few.
On other occasions it is other people. An unhealthy relationship, a devious friend or associate or even a member of our immediate or extended family.
In order to see God more clearly today, we must ask Him to remove anything or anyone who is blocking our view of Him. Now this does not necessarily mean death, but simply the connection to that thing or person coming to an end. Once this happens, we will experience a shift in our spiritual life like that of Isaiah.
