Commentary from Pastor Mike White:

Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying: “Whom shall I send, and who will go for Us?” Then I said, “Here am I! Send me.” – Is 6:8

The Lord needed a messenger. Isaiah jumped at the opportunity immediately. “Here am I!” he said. “Send me.”

We marvel at Isaiah’s courage. We gasp at his immediate ability to say yes to God. But unless the Lord had touched his lips, Isaiah would not have been ready to respond! God anointed Isaiah’s lips (Is 6:6-7); and from that point forward, saying yes was a given.

The anointing empowers us to say yes, when all our logic and instinct dictates our answer should be no. Why can’t you say yes to the things of God? Because you haven’t prayed that He would help you to say yes!


Father, help me to say “YES” to more of You! Anoint my lips in Jesus’ name, the same way You did to Isaiah. When You call, I will answer. Fill me with Your Holy Spirit, and help me to say yes!
