Send Me, Lord!

eMoment by Laurie Aker

Focus Scripture: Psalm 19 ESV

1 The heavens declare the glory of God,
and the sky above  proclaims his handiwork.
2 Day to day pours out speech,
and night to night reveals knowledge.
3 There is no speech, nor are there words,
whose voice is not heard.
4 Their voice goes out through all the earth,
and their words to the end of the world.
In them he has set a tent for the sun,
5 which comes out like a bridegroom leaving his chamber,
and, like a strong man, runs its course with joy.
 6 Its rising is from the end of the heavens,
and its circuit to the end of them,
and there is nothing hidden from its heat.
7  The law of the LORD is perfect,
reviving the soul;
the testimony of the LORD is  sure,
making wise  the simple;
8 the precepts of the LORD are right,
rejoicing the heart;
the commandment of the LORD is  pure,
enlightening the eyes;
9 the fear of the LORD is clean,
enduring forever;
the rules  of the LORD are true,
and righteous altogether.
10 More to be desired are they than gold,
even much  fine gold;
sweeter also than honey
and drippings of  the honeycomb.
11 Moreover, by them is your servant warned;
in keeping them there is great reward.
12    Who can discern his errors?
Declare me innocent from hidden faults.
13 Keep back your servant also from presumptuous sins;
let them not have  dominion over me!
Then I shall be blameless,
and innocent of great transgression.
14 Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart
be acceptable in your sight,
O LORD, my rock and my redeemer!

Dear Faithful One,
Boldly proclaim the Word of God.


There is a song entitled, “Hear am I Lord, Send Me.”
Singing it one day, my heart was deeply touched thinking
that there isn’t any higher calling or purpose. The Lord has
called us to go into the world to bring the message of His truth.
Would you cry out to God today that He would send you?
Would you ask Him to take His Word and apply
it to your heart and help you realize that He has given you
Himself for this very purpose, that you might
enjoy Him and proclaim Him to others.


The book of Hebrews tells us that long ago,
in the days of the Old Testament, God spoke to His people
often and in many different ways and at many times
through His prophets. Then there came a day
when God spoke to us in and through Jesus Christ.
Jesus is “the exact radiance of the glory of God 
and the exact imprint of his nature, 
and he upholds the universe by 
the word of his power” (Hebrews 1:3 ESV).
Jesus is the living Word. He came and dwelt among us,
“Immanuel, God with us” (Matthew 1:23 ESV).
Jesus came and lived and died and rose again that you
might have life and have it in abundance. If you are in Christ,
Jesus dwells IN you, not just with you. We hear this,
we know this, and often we just buzz right on by,
without really thinking about Jesus being IN us.
But would you think about this? God has called you into
partnership with Him through Jesus. You are one in Christ,
with Christ, for Christ, through Christ. God has given you His glory.
What would it really look like if you took these truths to heart?

The chief of the nations dwells within you!
“Arise, and let us go up to Zion, to the LORD our God.” 
For thus says the LORD, “Sing aloud with gladness for Jacob, 
and raise shouts for the chief of the nations” (Jeremiah 31:6b-7 ESV).
I want you to fully take this in: Jesus Christ, the living Word,
the chief of nations, dwells within you. He told you to:
“Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, 
baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son 
and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all 
that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, 
to the end of the age” (Matthew 28:19-20 ESV).
Draw near to God in His Word, trust Him and obey Him.
He will instruct you in the way that you should go-
He has given us His Word, which is perfect and pure,
which will revive your soul, which will make you wise,
which will enlighten your eyes, which will cause your
heart to rejoice! You will be equipped and ready to go forth,
together with Jesus for the Gospel.

“Then I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, ‘Whom shall I send, 
and who will go for Us?’ Then I said, 
‘Here am I. Send me!'” (Isaiah 6:8 ESV).

Will you call with me, “Hear am I, Lord. Send me”?

Write the following verses from Psalm 19
and say them aloud three times.


7  The law of the LORD is perfect,
reviving the soul;
the testimony of the LORD is  sure,
making wise the simple;
8  the precepts of the LORD are right,
rejoicing the heart;
the commandment of the LORD is pure,
enlightening the eyes;
9 the fear of the LORD is clean,
enduring forever.


Lord God, I want to live and speak the Gospel in everything I do.
I want others to see Jesus in me and sense His love, His presence,
and His holiness so much so that they would want to know Him more.
Lord, when I say, “Hear am I. Send me,” I mean it.
I want to be ready to go wherever, whenever, and to whomever you send me.
