The Lord GOD has given Me the tongue of the learned, that I should know how to speak a word in season to him who is weary. He awakens Me morning by morning, He awakens My ear to hear as the learned. Isaiah 50:4
(Isaiah records four Servant Songs. This verse is from the third. The Servant is the long-awaited Messiah, so we can follow His example.)
The Servant knows what to say.
He is learned, instructed.
He knows when to speak.
In season, not the first moment a thought pops in his head.
He knows to whom He should speak.
To the one who is weary.
How does He know this?
Every morning the Lord GOD awakens him
To hear, to understand as the learned.
To listen as a disciple.
The Lord GOD has given us tongues to speak
Ears to listen.
Have we received His instruction?
How do we use our voices?
Do we know what to say?
When to speak?
