In the year that King Uzziah died, I saw the Lord sitting on a throne, high and lifted up, and the train of His robe filled the temple. Isa 6:1
In my opinion, there is a difference in Isaiah’s writing in Chapters 1-5 as compared to 6-66.
It started with the death of King Uzziah.
This king was amazing in how he improved the nation of Israel. His accomplishments include subduing enemy nations, building up the national army, fortifying the city, digging wells, planting gardens, and increasing livestock production.
Under his reign Israel developed advanced weaponry to protect the national interest.
Truly, King Uzziah was a great, Godly king.
When a leader takes such successful steps to the security and stability of the entire nation, it becomes easy to take your eyes off God and admire the greatness of the leader.
I’m not saying this is what Isaiah did but he only saw the Lord “high and lifted up” when King Uzziah died.
Isaiah realized how much more majestic the Lord God is saying, “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 my eyes have seen the King, the Lord of hosts.” Isa 6:5
True prosperity begins when you see God as King and Lord of your life.
Prosperity begins when you quit looking at the accomplishments of others and yourself!
Prosperity is from God.
