Daily SOAP: Here Am I. Send ME!

SOAP stands for Scripture, Observation, Application and Prayer. Today’s journal comes from reading Isaiah 6.

Scripture

“Then I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, “Whom shall I send, and who will go for us?” Then I said, “Here am I. Send me!” –Isaiah 6:8

Observation

God is looking for people to send. The work is far greater than the number of workers.

God is the One who sends. Our modern evangelical missions language refers to our financial supporters as those who send us. Certainly they play a part, but GOD is the sender.

The only reasonable response to this request–especially after having seen the Lord–is to say what Isaiah said, “Here am I. Send Me.”

Application

Whenever I’ve read this in the past, I’ve always focused on ME going for the Lord. Today, I sense God saying, “Recruit others.” We need more workers!

Prayer

Father, help me to see You clearly as Isaiah did. Might a vision of You humble me and motivate me to service. Lord, send me! Give me a fresh awareness of Your sending me and my life calling. And use me to recruit others to Your service–to help them see You and respond as Isaiah did.

In Jesus name, Amen.
