Divine Note #35 - Here I am Lord! Send me! Isaiah 6:8

Divine Note #35 - Aug. 30, 2009

Here I am Lord! Send me! Isaiah 6:8
Isaiah 6
Isaiah’s Cleansing and Call
1 It was in the year King Uzziah died[
a] that I saw the Lord. He was sitting on a lofty throne, and the train of his robe filled the Temple. 2 Attending him were mighty seraphim, each having six wings. With two wings they covered their faces, with two they covered their feet, and with two they flew. 3 They were calling out to each other,
“Holy, holy, holy is the Lord of Heaven’s Armies! The whole earth is filled with his glory!”
4 Their voices shook the Temple to its foundations, and the entire building was filled with smoke.
5 Then I said, “It’s all over! I am doomed, for I am a sinful man. I have filthy lips, and I live among a people with filthy lips. Yet I have seen the King, the Lord of Heaven’s Armies.”
6 Then one of the seraphim flew to me with a burning coal he had taken from the altar with a pair of tongs. 7 He touched my lips with it and said, “See, this coal has touched your lip…

Jesus Walks on Water
22 Immediately after this, Jesus insisted that his disciples get back into the boat and cross to the other side of the lake, while he sent the people home. 23 After sending them home, he went up into the hills by himself to pray. Night fell while he was there alone. 24 Meanwhile, the disciples were in trouble far away from land, for a strong wind had risen, and they were fighting heavy waves. 25 About three o’clock in the morning[a] Jesus came toward them, walking on the water. 26 When the disciples saw him walking on the water, they were terrified. In their fear, they cried out, “It’s a ghost!” 27 But Jesus spoke to them at once. “Don’t be afraid,” he said. “Take courage. I am here![b]” 28 Then Peter called to him, “Lord, if it’s really you, tell me to come to you, walking on the water.” 29 “Yes, come,” Jesus said. So Peter went over the side o…

Divine Note #33– August 17, 2009

Dear Divine Notes Readers,
I need to give praise and glory to the AWESOME Jesus Christ that I serve! I’ve experienced what this verse promises!

Philippians 4:7 (NLT) Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.
I’ve just had the week of my life! In the natural things are stressful, I have an ill parent, a very challenging job that I love, an event to host and a child who is leaving for college. Last Wednesday I cried out to the Lord when I woke up with a very sad heart! I received peace that exceeds anything my mind can understand! I often encourage you to cry out to the Lord, well, I can guarantee you that HE RESPONDS because I claimed His promise and He responded!

Jesus Heals in Response to Faith – Mark 5:25-34 This entire week the Lord has put it in my heart to talk about how all of us have the ability to come to Him in faith and claim what His…

Dear Readers,

As my daughter prepares to go to college, one of the ways I will stay connected is by texting a Scripture to her each day. I also post the passage on my Facebook wall and Twitter for all my “friends” to read so I can be accountable for doing it each day. I posted the Scriptures quoted above to her over the weekend, but I didn’t realize that they: 1) were both from David who was asking God to protect him and 2) would be the basis of this Divine Note until I went into the Bible to review them. God speaks …

John 14:16-18 (NLT)16 And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Advocate,
