When God presented Isaiah with an opportunity to be His messenger, Isaiah jumped at the opportunity. He didn't give a list of reasons why God should pick someone else (as did Gideon), nor did he share his long list of short-comings. Several years ago I knew that God was asking me to do something, but because of fear, I wasn't sure I wanted to do it. Isaiah exemplifies the importance of doing as God requests when He requests it – with alacrity. Alacrity means cheerful readiness. Are you ready when God asks? If you don't do it, then who will? If not you, then who? Consider it a privilege and an opportunity that God chooses to include us in what He's doing in the world.
