Even A Glimpse is Overwhelming
Then said I, 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 mine eyes have seen the King, the LORD of hosts. (Isaiah 6:5 KJV)
Isaiah was rendered awestruck with the opportunity to catch a glimpse of God. It was but a twinkling of time that left his heart forever changed.
The instant Isaiah’s eyes took in the holy and righteous presence of God he intimately understood his own sinful heart condition. Isaiah’s impiety clearly stood out in stark contrast to the perfection shining brilliantly forth from the essence of God. Isaiah was immediately convicted of his own darkened heart condition.
