“Led to the Source” – Charles F. Stanley
“Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?” And I said, “Here am I. Send me!” – Isaiah 6:8
Have you ever found that when reading your Bible or listening to a sermon, sometimes God will lead you to the same passage over and over again?
I recall an occasion when I was seeking the Lord’s will about a decision I faced, and every morning I found myself reading Isaiah 6. I was into the third week of this before I realized I was being rebellious toward the Lord with regard to what He required of me. Somehow He would not let me escape verse 8. When I finally said yes to the Lord, Isaiah 6 was no longer prominent in my morning meditation.
Once of the most rewarding experiences in the Christian life is to face a challenge and meditate upon Scripture until we know our heavenly Father has spoken. Through His Word he directs us, challenges us, warns us, and reassures us.
Will you be open to what He is saying to you today? Then be sure to pay attention to the verses that keep turning up.
Father, thank You for Your Word and Your persistence with me as I seek to hear Your voice and follow Your lead, amen.
In His presence…let Him lead you.
