“And I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send, and who will go for us?” Then I said, “Here I am! Send me”” (Isaiah 6:8).
What happened to the simple openness of hearts to let God use us when and where He will. It seems that the simplicity of being yielded to God has become so complicated by adding human requirements and denominational restrictions.
When Jesus called the disciples in Luke 5, “they left everything and followed Him” (5:11, see also 18:28). Jesus will clearly directly help us in working out the details of life, marriage and family. What He is looking for is the simple surrender of the heart. I am no longer in control!
Your “Here I am! Is simply where you are, in your circumstances before God. You do not need to change anything to offer yourself to God. It is simply letting go of your grip on life and letting God direct it where He wants to use you. Your “Send me” is not dictating to God where you think He should send or use you. God’s will is perfect anyway. You can’t improve on His plan.
