Wisdom from the Lord

My prayer is that I would be effective when I use my tounge.  That practice include when I used it toward my wife, kids, extended families and friends.  As I grown up, I have seen that spoken words can be effective on it’s time.   The same spoken words, if spoken at different time/ocassions, will bring different results. The best thing is to say the right thing at the right time, while the worst one is to say the wrong thing at the wrong time.  I was specifically astounded by v. 4 and 5 from Isaiah 50:

Isaiah 50:4-10 (NKJV)

 4 “ 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. 
       5 The Lord GOD has opened My ear; 
      And I was not rebellious, 
      Nor did I turn away. 
       6 I gave My back to those who struck Me,
      And My cheeks to those who plucked out the beard; 
      I did not hide My face from shame and spitting. 
       7 “ For the Lord GOD will help Me; 
      Therefore I will not be disgraced; 
      Therefore I have set My face like a flint, 
      And I know that I will not be ashamed. 
       8 He is near who justifies Me; 
      Who will contend with Me? 
      Let us stand together. 
      Who is My adversary? 
      Let him come near Me. 
       9 Surely the Lord GOD will help Me; 
      Who is he who will condemn Me? 
      Indeed they will all grow old like a garment; 
      The moth will eat them up. 
       10 “ Who among you fears the LORD? 
      Who obeys the voice of His Servant? 
      Who walks in darkness 
      And has no light? 
      Let him trust in the name of the LORD 
      And rely upon his God. 

I want to be ‘the learned’ ones.  To hear and learn on daily basis.  To gain understanding.  To be obedience and not rebelious.  That’s maturity, and that’s where I want to be.  Not only myself, but with my family.  That’s my prayer.
