As of 5:30 central time Kaiser was resting and the kidney functioning. The first 24 hours are critical. Before he went in to surgery for the transplant he told Aroldo “I will soon be able to drink a glass of water”.
It is 12:30am & just got home to Casa. Kaiser is urinating but in a lot of pain as is his mother. So they are asking for more prayer.
I jumped around and so we have seen Nehemiah, Job, Esther and Ezra but not in order. Today let us look at Isaiah whom we know as the great prophet of God. But honestly what made him so great was he had the heart of a servant.
Isaiah 6:8-9, “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!” So God said, “Go, and tell the people……..”
If there was only one characteristic God would be willing to give me I would beg Him for boldness. Isaiah was bold with a capital “B”. He did not back down.
He ministered as a prophet for 53 years. Dottie and I celebrated our 53rd wedding anniversary this year and that equals Isaiah’s years as a prophet. Like Billy Graham who ministered through the administrations of many US presidents Isaiah ministered under 4 kings: Uzziah, Jotham, Ahaz and Hezekiah.
It was while he was ministering that Judah was captured by the Assyrians. Isaiah was around through those years of captivity and you will remember that Hezekiah prayed and God wiped out the entire Assyrian army years later.
The prophets Hosea and Micah were his contemporaries. Hosea ministered in the northern kingdom while Micah and Isaiah ministered in the southern kingdom. He will live an awesome life.
