Summary: God is looking for a man.

God Is Looking For A Man

Isaiah 6:8 Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for us? Then said I, Here am I; send me.

Isaiah 59:16 And he saw that there was no man, and wondered that there was no intercessor: therefore his arm brought salvation unto him; and his righteousness, it sustained him.

The supreme need of God in this hour is a PERSON that will give him license to work thru their life.

o What God desperately needs today is:

• Hands to touch with

• Hearts to care with

• Eyes to see through

• And Mouths to speak through.

• God wants to have revival in Lake City.

o We are overdue for revival.

• And God wants to give us revival.

• He wants to work.

• What he needs is a man, woman or child that will let him work!

• God will work, but the question comes echoing thru time, who will let him?

o God NEEDS a man – vessel thru which he can work.

• He needs you and me to let him move.

• He needs a vessel thru which he can pour out his spirit.

• He needs a vessel that he can anoint for his purpose.

• He needs a man or a woman that is willing to be used.


• Did you ever wonder why, when Jonah ran from God, why didn’t God go tell Nineveh himself?

o Why go to the trouble of creating the storm and moving the whale into place?

o For a God that can do anything that he wants, it seems like an awful lot of trouble to go thru in order to get a rebellious prophet to go speak to Nineveh.


• Did you ever wonder why God made Noah labor to build an Ark?

o Why not hold them in his hand or put them on a mountain top and shelter them?


• Did you ever wonder why God persisted with Moses, even after he tried to persuade God not to send him to Egypt?

o Why did God bother with him?

o Why not descend on Pharaoh’s palace in a whirlwind and demand the release of His own people?

Did you ever wonder why, when it came to the saving of the World

• God looked first for a man?

o And when he found none worthy – he became a man!

o God robed himself in flesh, as a man, and brought salvation and righteousness to a lost world.

The bible is replete with examples that

• Every time God seeks to activate his will on this planet for the purpose of salvation

o He uses a man.

• All of the time.

o He chooses a vessel of frail human flesh to become the conduit thru which he moves.

• He’s proven over and over again that he will pursue a man to the ends of the earth in order to obtain a vessel by which he can minister mercy and grace.

• Why does God refuse to act on his own without the vehicle of humanity?

o Why is God so relentless in his pursuit of a man to fulfill his will?

• Why does God try so hard to obtain a man that will let him work through him?

o Way back in the first chapter of the Bible, God gave Adam dominion over the earth.

• He’s a sovereign God, He rules all that is.

• He has dominion and authority over everything – even the devil.

o But when he created man, he created him to fellowship with him.

• He made man the master of his own domain.

• He granted to him dominion over the earth.

o When Satan sought to subvert the plan of God, to tarnish God’s creation

• He went to the one who had dominion.

• When Adam yielded his will to Satan

• Satan utilized Adam’s dominion to bring sin into the world.

o Romans 5:12 tells us that by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin

• Notice, it wasn’t by Satan or by Satan’s authority.

• But it was by Man’s dominion that sin entered the world.

• It was man’s authority that brought condemnation and judgment to the world.

o Romans 5:19 then clues us into the reason why God is so unyielding in his pursuit of a human vessel through which to bring mercy and grace to the world.

• For as by one man’s disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one shall many be made righteous.

• Sin entered by man’s authority and sin can only be stopped by man’s authority.
