He can change us in a moment from lost to redeemed…from old to new. And yet,…
…it takes a lifetime process of being changed from glory to glory until we see His face.
When Isaiah saw the Lord, high and lifted up, he fell down and cried out, “I am undone!” He was a prophet chosen by God. He was a man of dust, chosen to be God’s spokesperson. Yet, in his moment of realization, when Isaiah saw the train of God’s robe and the majesty of the throne-room, he came apart at the seams! Then, he declared how unworthy he was to speak for God, “for I am a man of unclean lips.”
Out of the mouth come the things of the heart.
I wonder if the closer we get to His glory,
the more we see how unworthy we are to be there.
And the irony of it, we may be getting closer,
but we’re feeling further and further away.
He is so far removed from what we can imagine.
His perfection and holiness cannot be obtained and yet,
He wants us to be in His presence.
He wants us to fellowship with Him.
He made a way,
through His Son
for every. last. nook. and. cranny. of our sinful heart
to be covered by His blood…
Even that last dark corner we aren’t sure He saw…
He saw it.
He understood it.
He covered it.
