Awaken Our Ears
The other night, my wife and I were discussing a scripture where Jesus was talking about a disciple. I do not remember what verse it was, but the word “disciple” just rang a bell in my spirit.
The next morning I was prompted to do a Bible search for the word disciple and discovered this scripture in Isaiah, referring to Jesus.
“The Lord GOD has given Me the tongue of disciples,That I may know how to sustain the weary one with a word. He awakens [Me] morning by morning, He awakens My ear to listen as a disciple. The Lord GOD has opened My ear; and I was not disobedient nor did I turn back.” [Isaiah 50:4-5 NASB95]
I’m writing this and receiving direction from the Holy Spirit at the same time. Bear with me, I believe this is fresh manna for all of us.
Do we allow God to awaken us (and our ears) morning by morning to listen as a disciple (learned, taught one) so we can sustain the weary one with a word?
Look at verse 5 and think about Jesus for a moment. Do you see it?
“The Lord GOD has opened My ear; and I was not disobedient nor did I turn back”. Jesus listened. Jesus was obedient. Jesus did not turn back.
Praise Him right now for what He’s done! COME ON!!!
