Isaiah 50:4 - Encouragement Begins Each Morning.

Isaiah 50:4 - Encouragement Begins Each Morning.

Isaiah 50:4 (KJV) The Lord GOD hath given me the tongue of the 
learned, that I should know how to speak a word in season to him that is 
weary: he wakeneth morning by morning, he wakeneth mine ear to hear as 
the learned.  

Isaiah 50:4 (GWT) The Almighty LORD will teach me what to say, 
so I will know how to encourage weary people. Morning after morning 
he will wake me to listen like a student. 

Isaiah 50:4 (NLT) The Sovereign LORD has given me his words of 
wisdom, so that I know what to say to all these weary ones. Morning by 
morning he wakens me and opens my understanding to his will.  


   Isaiah had a habit of waking up in the morning and listening 
to God with a particular attitude: ready! He surrendered his day 
completely to God. Jesus had that same habit. The Bible says, "Very early 
in the morning, while it was still dark, Jesus got up, left the 
house and went off to a solitary place, where he prayed" (Mark 1:35). 
   Just as a good breakfast prepares us physically and mentally 
for the day, so a morning routine of time with God can transform us 
spiritually. It focuses our minds on what we most need to think about: God's 
agenda. It increases the likelihood that we will check in with God 
throughout the day. Isaiah said his habit equipped him to encourage tired 
people, and that will be true of us. When we've let God encourage and 
support us, we'll be in tune with God's desires for our day and much 
more equipped to support others. 
   Surrendering to God each morning is as nourishing for the 
spirit as a good breakfast is for the body. [The Daniel Plan 365-Day 


When we are sick, we turn to a medical doctor who has taken 
years of training in order to heal the sick.  When we are in trouble 
in business we frequently turn to an attorney with years of 
training.  Or for spiritual matters we turn to the minister, usually a 
person who holds a degree from a seminary. But listen as God speaks!  
All knowledge is from Him!  He is able to give "the tongue of those 
who are taught," with the purpose of sustaining the weary.  And 
where and when may we gain this marvelous gift?  In the morning as we 
draw near Him in prayer, petition, adoration and worship.  He will 
awaken us to hear "as those who are taught." We have an opportunity to 
ask the fount of all knowledge to have a tongue to speak His words, 
and an ear to hear His words.  [In His Time; Walk With Wisdom] 


   Come to Me and listen! Attune yourself to My voice, and 
receive My richest blessings. Marvel at the wonder of communing with the 
Creator of the universe while sitting in the comfort of your home. Kings 
who reign on earth tend to make themselves inaccessible; ordinary 
people almost never gain an audience with them. Even dignitaries must 
plow through red tape and protocol in order to speak with royalty.  
   Though I am King of the universe, I am totally accessible to 
you. I am with you wherever you are. Nothing can separate you from My 
Presence! When I cried out from the cross, "It is finished!" the curtain 
of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom. This opened the 
way for you to meet Me face to Face, with no need of protocol or 
priests. I, the King of kings, am your constant Companion. (Isa. 50:4; 
55:2, 3; John 19:30; Mat. 27:50, 51) [Jesus Calling by Sarah Young] 

   I am speaking in the depths of your being. Be still, so that 
you can hear My voice. I speak in the language of Love; My words 
fill you with Life and Peace, Joy and hope. I desire to talk with all 
of My children, but many are too busy to listen. The "work ethic" 
has them tied up in knots. They submit wholeheartedly to this 
taskmaster, wondering why they feel so distant from Me.  
   Living close to Me requires making Me your First Love--your 
highest priority. As you seek My Presence above all else, you experience 
Peace and Joy in full measure. I also am blessed when you make Me 
first in your life. While you journey through life in My Presence, My 
Glory brightens the world around you. (Isa. 50:4; Rev. 2:4; Isa. 60:2)
