A Life-Changing Vision

Re: Verse reading–Isaiah 6:1-8; Revelation 4:1-11 (day one) 
“In the year that King Uzziah died, I saw the Lord seated on the throne, high and exalted.” (Isaiah 6:1)  There was clear time line.  Years later, Isaiah would recall the vision that changed his life.  Happened the year that King Uzziah died.  Great king, symbol and sponsor of 52 years of stability and growth for Judah.  No one could imagine what would happen without his leadership.  In this condition of great anxiety, the young prophet was given a vision.  “I saw the Lord.” (v 1) High.  Holy.  Huge.  “THEN I said, ‘woe is me.’ “ (v 5)  “THEN the seraphim flew to me with a burning coal.” (v 6)  “THEN I heard the voice of the Lord saying, ‘Whom shall I send, and who will go for us?’ “ (v 8)  One step following the other, the prophet moved forward from despair, to revelation, to conviction for sin, to cleansing, to volunteered service.  His life was never the same.  Yours?
