the state of my ears

Oswald Chambers was speaking about how Isaiah the Old Testament prophet found himself in the presence of God in Isaiah 6.  There, he heard God’s missional call to go and join God in the building of His Kingdom through the proclaiming to others of His great glory, mercy, and love.  Listen to Chambers’ sense of it:

“God did not address the call [directly] to Isaiah; Isaiah OVERHEARD God saying, ‘Who will go for us?’  The call of God is not for the special few; it is for EVERYONE.  Whether or not I hear God’s call depends upon the state of my ears; and what I hear depends upon my disposition.”
