Willing Mouthpieces

February 23rd 2007 – Friday  

“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 earTo hear as the learned. The Lord God has opened My ear; And I was not rebellious, Nor did I turn away. I gave My back to those who struck Me, And My cheeks to those who plucked out the beard;I did not hid My face from shame and spitting. Isaiah 50:4-6 

          Jesus is the one to whom this references. His willingness to be submissive to the Will of the Father. His experience during His time here on earth. His divine empowerment for His purpose. Now through a relationship with Jesus those qualities are available to us. Therefore, let us take a look at this Scripture through the eyes of Christ addressing us.  

          God through His divine power and choosing can impart to us understand and knowledge which we would otherwise have no capacity for obtaining. We are not limited by our human intellect and understanding; we are only limited by our willingness. God the holder of all power can see to it that on any given day you are able to do what He desires you to do. 

          There is often an unwillingness to express to others what God has given us to express. He desires people who are willing to submit themselves to Him, speaking that word in season which He wants spoken to an individual. In season is vital, because the timing in which something is approached with an individual is crucial. We cannot rely on our human understanding to determine that time. God knows the correct time and method through which He wishes to reach each of His children. All He needs is willing mouthpieces. Often, more than not, it is a fear of rejection, being misunderstood, another’s anger, or that sense that it is just not my business that vexes and quenches the Spirit of God among mankind. We have taken “it’s just not my business” to the degree, that most live a life of isolation and aloneness, even among people. No real expression of what is important in their lives comes forth. Most of the relating people do today is superficial, at best. It does not have to be that way, if we are willing to connect with others, be transparent, and be willing to take a risk and “speak a word in season.” Perhaps then, we would not be such a ‘weary’ people.  

          We do need however, to insure our hearts are in the right place. Each day when we awake we need to turn to God first, asking Him to make sure our hearts are clean before Him. Then asking Him to open our ears that we might hear Him. And finally, asking Him for a steadfast spirit that would be always willing to obey His directives, regardless, of the cost. We have seen in the latter verse, that Jesus did so, despite the cost. We must always remember, to turn away from what God wants us to do, is to be rebellious.

  1. i agree about the superficial and the loneliness even when we are among other people. i can see that in many people that i know personally. it seems there is a missing connection between people in our world today.

    • Yes that missing piece is called sincerity, care, and interest. People do not have it for each other as they once had. We should be thinking about what we can BRING TO relationships not what WE CAN GET OUT OF relationships. Once enough of us do that things will begin to change. Dead Sea Scrolls and PTM Writer
