The state of my ears

Oswald Chambers I read today: “Whom shall I send, and who will go for us?  Then said I, Here am I; send me.” Isaiah 6:8

Chambers continues, “God did not address the call to Isaiah, Isaiah overheard God saying, “who will go for us?” The call of God is not for the special few, it is for everyone. Whether or not I hear God’s call depends upon the state of my ears; and what I hear depends upon my disposition.”

And he ends with, “If we let the Spirit of God bring us face to face with God, we too shall hear something akin to what Isaiah heard, the still small voice of God; and in perfect freedom will say, “here am I; send me.”

Aren’t we glad Oswald Chambers said, “Here am I”?
