It’s hard to find time in our busy schedules to spend time with the Lord, but it is so very crucial to our spiritual well-being that we make this time. My challenge to you (and to myself) is to come together each Saturday morning and study a verse from the Bible. Let’s talk about what it means to us and how we can apply it in our daily lives. So look for a new verse every Saturday morning, grab a cup of coffee and your prayer journal, and let’s grow together in the Lord!

Then I heard the Lord asking, “Whom should I send as a messenger to my people? Who will go for us?” And I said, “Lord, I’ll go! Send me” (Isaiah 6:8).

Send me.

These can be scary words for any believer.

We are all tasked with sharing the Good News (John 3:16) with others (Matthew 28:18-20).

We want to share this with others. We want to serve the Lord. As long as it’s on our terms. And as long as it’s not too scary, difficult, uncomfortable, or embarrassing. As long as there isn’t really any personal cost to us.

But what if we submitted ourselves fully to the Lord? What if we fearlessly declared, as Isaiah did: Send me! Just tell me where to go, Lord, and I’ll go. Tell me what to do, and I’ll do it.

What if we trusted God to equip us to follow through with His plans for us? What if we said yes without concern for how it will impact us?

What if we were willing to sacrifice for Him, as He did for us through His Son Jesus Christ?

Maybe it’s time we change the way we look at serving the Lord. Maybe it’s time we get uncomfortable.

Let’s start fearlessly and boldly stepping out in faith!

Has God been putting something on your heart recently? Then He will give you everything you need to accomplish the task. All you have to do is say, “Yes, Lord, send me!”

Pray with me:

Lord, we humbly pray for you to equip us with courage and faith to fulfill your Great Commission. We ask you to send us where you want us to go. Maybe it’s just across the street to the neighbor’s house. Maybe it’s to a different city or even country. I freely admit that this is scary to me, and that I cannot accomplish anything without you. We need you, Lord. We ask that you equip us, send us, and see us through! I love you, Lord. Thank you for loving me and for allowing us the privilege of sharing your Word with others. In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.

Thank you for sharing this verse with me, my sweet sisters in Christ. I would love it if you would let me know in the comments how this verse impacts you and your life! I’m looking forward to reading what you have to say!

  1. Thanks, Bree. I find this verse somewhat scary – like jumping into the unknown and yet, whatever
    and wherever, He would be right there. I sincerely desire to bewilling

    • I desire to be willing as well but it certainly can be scary! Thankfully God will be there, steadfast and never changing. That’s something we can always count on!

  2. Wonderful question – I wonder what would happen if we all answered, “What has the Lord put on your heart to do?” Saying “yes” does take courage and thankfully He provides that to us as well. I will be thinking on this one today. Many blessings on both you and your little one as you all go through the changes this journey of motherhood brings! Blessings!

    • Thank you so much, Joanne! It certainly has been a journey but one that gets beautiful and sweeter by the day! 🙂

  3. It always catches me off guard how easy it is to say something and how hard it is to live and practice it. This verse brings that reality to the surface for me. I’m comforted by the reality that God knows our weaknesses, He just asks us to take steps of faith (even if they’re small) and to trust Him for the growth that only He can accomplish that comes through “stepping out.” Thank you for reminding me of this, I needed it today. =)

    • So true! Stepping out in faith is much harder than just saying it. I know He will equip us, but it’s still scary!
