“The Lord God has given me the tongue of a teacher, that I may know how to sustain the weary with a word. Morning by morning he wakens— wakens my ear to listen as those who are taught.”
Isaiah 50.4 NRSV
God chose the prophet Isaiah and gave him inspired words that not only judged Israel but gave hope and comfort to those seeking relief from suffering and sin.
How can we permit God to waken us today in order that we might listen to his words as Christ’s disciples?
