Woe Is Me

So I said:
“Woe is me, for I am undone!
Because I am a man of unclean lips,
And I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips;
For my eyes have seen the King,
The Lord of hosts.” (Isaiah 6:5)

No man can truly know himself until he knows God; for God is the only One who truly knows man, and only He can show a man who he really is. After all, the Lord created us, and only He possesses the intimate knowledge of every facet of our humanity – our essence, our origin, our present, and our destiny. Isaiah discovered this truth when saw the Lord, and he immediately realized and confessed his low moral estate in the presence of God’s Holiness -  "I am a man of unclean lips." Whenever God reveals Himself to a man, He reveals that man to himself. Only then does he come to know who he is. 

Isaiah saw God and himself, and now he was ready to see others in the light of that revelation. The world around him became clear, and now he was able to judge all things as God judges them. That is the true meaning of "revelation" - seeing all things as God sees them.

Let's Pray - Dear Father, I am nothing apart from You, and I find nothing good in me unless it has been imparted to me by Jesus. Thank you for Your Holy Spirit. I will worship You in Spirit and in truth!
