When Isaiah receives a vision from God, the Lord lays out a need for someone to speak for Him. God has a message and is looking for a messenger. God issued a general call, for anyone, and Isaiah took it personally. He did so because of three factors that make up a divine call to lead:
1. Opportunity: We see a specific place where we can make a difference. This has to
do with timing.
2. Ability: We recognize that we have the God-given gifts to do something about the
need. This has to do with competence.
3. Desire: We want to step out and address the need; our hunger pushes us.
This has to do with our passion.
