instruction 50

The Sovereign Lord has given me a well-instructed tongue,
   to know the word that sustains the weary.
He wakens me morning by morning,
   wakens my ear to listen like one being instructed.
—  Isaiah 50:4

“The Sovereign Lord has given me a well-instructed tongue, to know the word that sustains the weary. He wakens me morning by morning, wakens my ear to listen like one being instructed.” (Isaiah 50:4)
Isaiah was saying that it was the Lord who taught him what to say, especially words that would sustain the weary. But that only happened because in the morning his spiritual ears were awakened to listen.
Dear Lord, use my words to sustain the weary. Let my words be Your words of comfort and affirmation flowing through me. In Jesus’ Name I ask. Amen
