Morning Manna by Rufus Parker - 2016 May 17

In the year that king Uzziah died I saw also the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up, and his train filled the temple. Above it stood the seraphims: each one had six wings; with twain he covered his face, and with twain he covered his feet, and with twain he did fly. And one cried unto another, and said, Holy, holy, holy, is the LORD of hosts: the whole earth is full of his glory.
(Isaiah 6:1-3)

Today’s Morsel: What is it about tragedies that seem to get everyone's attention?  Why did King Uzziah’s death get Isaiah's attention?  What was it about his death that Isaiah was able to see God in all His glory?  How was it that the death of one man caused another man to see that he was unclean and see the importance of sharing the gospel with others?  Well, God’s ways aren’t our ways neither are His thoughts like our thoughts.  There have been many men and women who saw the need for change and became a witness for Christ when they came upon an accident or tragedy, and they became great witnesses for God, as did Isaiah.  We don’t know what God will use to turn us into mighty witnesses for Him, but when He does, we must be ready to go.

Sing: Jesus use me, oh Lord, don’t refuse me; for surely there’s a work that I can do. And even though it’s humble, Lord help my will to crumble, though the cost be great, I’ll work for you.

Thought For Today: Not my will, but Thy will be done!
