There is SUCH a wonderful promise from God’s Word in Isaiah 50:4–5 where Isaiah let’s us into a SECRET.
“The Sovereign Lord has given me His words of wisdom,so that I know how to comfort the weary.Morning by morning He wakens me and opens my understanding to His will.The Sovereign Lord has spoken to me,and I have listened. I have not rebelled or turned away”.
Isaiah tells us in these verses that God woke him up every morning and told him what he was supposed to do that day, and what he was to say to others! This wasn’t a ‘one of a kind’ occurrence: it happened ‘morning by morning’. Can you imagine how differently your day would go if you took the time to hear from God before you got out of bed?
Notice the word ‘UNDERSTANDING’.
God can give you UNDERSTANDING about what you should say and do before you get into a given situation.
In Isaiah 48:17, God says ‘I am the LORD … who teaches you what is best for you, who directs you in the way you should go’ (Isaiah 48:17 NIV 2011 Edition).
Talk about having a plus in life and an edge on the competition! And here’s the best part: even if you’re not listening, or you’re not in the right place spiritually, or you don’t have much experience in this realm, God will work with you ‘morning by morning’ until you learn to recognise and respond to His voice. Are you surprised? You shouldn’t be!
After all, that’s what good parents do with their children when they want them to grow up, mature, and enjoy life’s best. That’s what God wants to do for you and more. He’s a good…good Father!!!
