I Am a Person of Unclean Lips…

 

Kneeling in the presence of Almighty God
I cannot stand or dare to look at thee for…
I am a sinner, unworthy to be…
Anywhere near thee…
I am humbled by your Holiness…
I am undone; cast me far away from your presence for I cannot bear the thought of the Host High God, looking at me. O wretched woman who I am…
Shield me seraphim, let me melt away in my sackcloth and ashes…let me repent and turn away from the sin before my God…
I cannot even begin to speak with a mouth that’s vile and unclean…how can I praise thee
With lips that utter unjust things and cry with a heart that’s marred by evil that waits just beneath my breath…and people that I dwell among they too have unclean lips…and hearts far from thee…
O Holy One…I am undone let me hide and run from thee…
Then the angel took coal of fire from the altar and placed it on my lips…
Sanctifying and consecrating my mouth to speak the words of God, to God, without the stench of sin upon my breath…
Then I heard the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send, and who will go for us?”
But LORD, I am a woman, who will listen to me? I don’t have a degree or money, I am just me.
You are exactly who I want…
The scares, the wounds, and the marks of a life broken…your heart is true, you are who I have sought. I created women too…
And with humble adoration I spoke to my LORD and said, I’m old, and I’m weak, I can’t offer much but what I have I give to thee…
“Here I am. Send me!”
And He said, “Go tell this people.”
Isaiah 6 New International Version (NIV)
Isaiah’s Commission
In the year that King Uzziah died, I saw the Lord, high and exalted, seated on a throne; and the train of his robe filled the temple. Above him were seraphim, each with six wings: With two wings they covered their faces, with two they covered their feet, and with two they were flying. And they were calling to one another:
“Holy, holy, holy is the Lord Almighty; the whole earth is full of his glory.”
At the sound of their voices the doorposts and thresholds shook and the temple was filled with smoke.
“Woe to me!” I cried. “I am ruined! For I am a man of unclean lips, and I live among a people of unclean lips, and my eyes have seen the King, the Lord Almighty.”
Then one of the seraphim flew to me with a live coal in his hand, which he had taken with tongs from the altar. With it he touched my mouth and said, “See, this has touched your lips; your guilt is taken away and your sin atoned for.”
Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?”
And I said, “Here am I. Send me!”
He said, “Go and tell this people:
“‘Be ever hearing, but never understanding;
be ever seeing, but never perceiving.’
Make the heart of this people calloused;
make their ears dull
and close their eyes
Otherwise they might see with their eyes,
hear with their ears,
understand with their hearts,
and turn and be healed.”
Then I said, “For how long, Lord?”
And he answered:
“Until the cities lie ruined
and without inhabitant,
until the houses are left deserted
and the fields ruined and ravaged,
until the Lord has sent everyone far away
and the land is utterly forsaken.
And though a tenth remains in the land,
it will again be laid waste.
But as the terebinth and oak
leave stumps when they are cut down,
so the holy seed will be the stump in the land.”

I love the Lord Jesus Christ and am passionate about writing. I hope you enjoy the blog and come to visit often.
Then the Lord answered me and said:
“Write the vision
And make it plain on tablets,
That he may run who reads it.
For the vision is yet for an appointed time;
But at the end it will speak, and it will not lie.
Though it tarries, wait for it;
Because it will surely come,
It will not tarry.
“Behold the proud,
His soul is not upright in him;
But the just shall live by his faith. Habakkuk 2: 2-4
