“The Lord GOD has given Me the tongue of the learned, That I should know how to speak a word in season to [him who is] weary. He awakens Me morning by morning; He awakens My ear to hear as the learned. (Isaiah 50:4 NKJV)
The above verse is speaking about Jesus. We are to imitate Him. As disciples on assignment, we should believe and receive this this word today. Like Jesus, the Lord God has given us the tongue of the learned. The word learned in Hebrew is limmuwd. It means disciple or taught. It comes from the root word to be trained; to be exercised. We are the “learnt,” as Madea would say because we are students and disciples of Christ. We seek him. He trains us in His word, and we exercise our faith. He trains us to be His mouthpiece, so we know how to speak a word in season to him that is weary. Isn’t that what we are doing now? We share His word every day, we encourage each other, and we encourage others.
Each day, morning by morning, He wakens. The Hebrew word for wakens is uwr. It means to arouse; to stir; to be excited; to be triumphant; the idea of opening eyes. All this time we thought we were giddy for God in the early morning hours. It was Him waking us up. It’s always Him. He was stirring us up. He was opening our physical eyes and our spiritual eyes to the day ahead. If that was not enough, He was waking up our ears to hear, too. He opens our ears to hear and to listen to others that may be in need of the learned word. Most importantly, He opens our ears to hear the revelations He wants to share with us about Himself. I am so glad He wakes us up every day!
I enCOURAGE you to be awakened with eyes and ears wide open to hear God, His word and complete your assignment in Him today.
