Speaking With an Instructed Tongue

Daily God Walk for Friday, January 14, 2011

The Sovereign Lord has given me an instructed tongue, to know the word that sustains the weary. He wakens me morning by morning, wakens my ear to listen like one being taught.   – Isaiah 50:4

Wouldn’t it be good if we could say, “The Lord has given me an instructed tongue?”How would we talk, and what would we say if every morning when we awakened we had fresh words from God to speak throughout the day?

I am convinced that there are some among us who have that blessing. It isn’t that when they awaken there is a typed set of instructions for the day setting there on their nightstand, but it can be just that simple.

When the first thought we have upon awakening from our slumber is, “What would the Lord have me do today and what would he have me say?” we would probably get that word. It has been my practice for many years to spend time with the Lord in the early morning seeking him for guidance, submitting petitions and making intercession.

If we are truly aware that, as Jesus said, we will be held accountable for every word we speak, we will be more careful about the words which come from our mouth. The only way to be sure of the value of our words is if they are given us by God himself. Oh, I’m not talking about exactly every word, but I am talking about the kind of words we use and the tone we use.

A tongue that is instructed, or trained, to speak the words of God will have the power to sustain the weary. An instructed tongue will speaks words of life and abundance.

It might be time to examine the words which come from our own mouth to see if they are words of encouragement and unity or words that discourage and divide?

Make a purpose to awaken every morning with the thought in mind, “What would the Lord have me speak today?” That thought will lead you seek him for his instruction.

 Prayer: Lord, my tongue needs your instruction. Grant me discipline to seek you daily for your instruction. Amen.
