When King Uzziah died, a time of crisis arose in Israel—but it was in this state of chaos that Isaiah encountered God. With the death of the king, Isaiah saw clearly the ultimate King, who is sovereign over all the affairs of time and who reigns in total glory. Once when we’ve encountered God in all His glory, Alistair Begg observes, the due response is “Woe is me,” and our lives should be marked by praise and service.
1In the year that King Uzziah died I saw the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up; and the train1 of his robe filled the temple.
