Great Faith

Re: Verse reading–Isaiah 6:1-8; Revelation 4:1-11 (Day Four)
This passage in Isaiah has always disturbed me.  A burning coal sounds to me like it would really hurt the lips.  I’m not sure what Isaiah’s thoughts were as the seraphim approached him with a red hot coal, but the results were very good…his iniquity was taken away and his sin was forgiven.  Fortunately for Isaiah, he was the only human present…had anyone else been there, I am sure they would have warned him not to let the hot coal touch his lips.  Isn’t that how we often are with God’s truth?  God commands us to be kind to our enemy and we fear destruction…God tells us to be reconciled and we fear humiliation…God instructs us to live a life of holiness and we fear rejection.  Isaiah demonstrated great faith in yielding to what looked to be destruction.  God, grant us faith to accept Your Word for truth and to trust in Your blessed results!
