A Spiritual Tongue

Today’s Reading: Isaiah 50:4-10

Isaiah 50:4 — The Lord God has given me the tongue of those who are taught, that I may know how to sustain with a word him who is weary. Morning by morning He awakens; He awakens my ear to hear as those who are taught.

God promises to sustain the weary with His words. This passage from Isaiah 50 is the third of the four “Servant Songs” found in the book of Isaiah. These songs speak of the Lord’s servant and describe Jesus Christ. This servant song in Isaiah 50 shows the obedience of Christ to God’s will.

Jesus, the servant of the Lord, allows God to open His ear every morning when He awakes. Jesus hears from God what He must do, and then does what He is told. Even if it means He must suffer pain and humiliation, Jesus is steadfastly determined to do His Father’s will (John 5:19,30).

Jesus also hears what to say from His Father. Jesus’ ear is opened to hear God’s Word, and He speaks God’s words to people (John 12:49). Jesus speaks the words that God wanted people to hear. He speaks the words from God that people needed to hear. Jesus says that His words are not from His flesh, His humanity, but from the Spirit to give life to the hearer (John 6:63).

Wouldn’t it be a wonderful blessing if we had the tongue of Jesus? We would know what to say and how to say it in such a way that our words could sustain those who are weary. We would speak words that calm storms, heal the sick, and raise the dead. Our words would be bold in the face of adversity, gentle when people need comfort or correction, and loving at all times.

We can have a spiritual tongue if we let the Lord awaken our ears in the morning to hear the Word of God and give us the mind of Christ. We can have a spiritual tongue if we yield to the will of God and let the Holy Spirit use our mouths to speak. Our tongues—our words—can be a beautiful blessing to ourselves and others. Lord, take our tongues and use them today!

“We can have a spiritual tongue if we let the Lord awaken our ears in the morning to hear the Word of God and give us the mind of Christ.”

Devotional, which is sent to me every morning, makes me look into myself, check my condition,and set my attitude for the given day.I hope to be able to say something to myself that can save someone else’s life.If I am qualified to do so.

I am depend on the word of Proverb-“Those who control their tongue will have a long life; opening your mouth can ruin everything.

‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭13‬:‭3‬ ‭NLT‬‬-and still trying to be careful by counting the words in my heart. There is long way to go.
