I have recently been meditating on 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 indicates that a well-instructed tongue brings sustenance and comfort to the weary. How different a well-instructed tongue compared to the untamed tongue that James speaks of in James 3. James indicates that an untrained, unrestrained tongue is like a spark that can set a whole forest ablaze.
So how can I have a well-instructed tongue, one that speaks life and comfort? A few chapters before, (Isaiah 6) as Isaiah was having a worship experience and confessed he was a man of unclean lips and lives among a people of unclean lips. God cleansed his lips, his tongue! This touch of God on Isaiah was so complete that he could say, The Sovereign Lord has given me a well-instructed tongue.
Isaiah also indicates a key to a well-instructed tongue is to awaken morning by morning and receive instruction from God. As we wait on God and pray in the quiet place of our lives, a great prayer to pray is; “God teach me to use my tongue in the right ways and help me keep watch of the words I say.”
Excited to share the word with you this coming weekend! See you then.
