Wisdom for a fresh Move of God Part 3

Let's look at another Biblical example of God's supernatural interaction with people.

Isaiah in the Temple (Fresh fire, fresh revelation, fresh humility and holiness, Fresh call, Fresh Vision and Calling)

(Note Isaiah's state of mind.) Isa 6:1-8

6:1 IN THE year that King Uzziah died, [in a vision] I saw the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up, and the skirts of His train filled the [most holy part of the] temple. [John 12:41.]
2 Above Him stood the seraphim; each had six wings: with two [each] covered his [own] face, and with two [each] covered his feet, and with two [each] flew.
3 And one cried to another and said, Holy, Holy, Holy is the Lord of hosts; the whole earth is full of His glory!
4 And the foundations of the thresholds shook at the voice of him who cried, and the house was filled with smoke.
5 Then said I, Woe is me! For I am undone and ruined, 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!
6 Then flew one of the seraphim [heavenly beings] to me, having a live coal in his hand which he had taken with tongs from off the altar;
7 And with it he touched my mouth and said, Behold, this has touched your lips; your iniquity and guilt are taken away, and your sin is completely atoned for and forgiven.
8 Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, Whom shall I send? And who will go for Us? Then said I, Here am I; send me.

Other Places where the Glory of God is revealed in some way.

Ex 33:21-34:1;
Job 38-41;
Rev 1-4.

Please note the details of the following points of the encounter with God.

Isaiah's Encounter as a whole

The Circumstances that cause Him to seek God

The Setting or location

The Reaction of Isasiah to the majesty and holiness of God even though He was a servant and prophet of God already.

The Response of God to Isaiah's realization of His imperfection in light of God's perfection and purity. (Out of the mouth come the abundance of the heart. Also note his identity as a representative of the people of Israel.)

The Call or Opportunity of God

The Response of man to the might and wonder of God and the opportunity to be a part of what God is doing.

3 And one cried to another and said, Holy, holHolyoly is the Lord of hosts; the whole earth is full of His glory!

I expect that "Holy, holHolyoly" is a typo on your part, not God's.
