A Kingdom Leader is being taught by God the Father through many life experiences and moments. He would awake His son morning by morning to open his ears. (Isaiah 50:4) God would teach him the words that sustain the weary!
Are you frustrated when you can't sleep? Is it possible that God the Father is trying to teach you in those moments? When do you recognize the Holy Spirit speaking to you? What have you learned today and this week?
Isaiah gives us a glimpse into the daily classroom of God the Father in chapter fifty. The content of the teaching is very intriguing since he taught him how an exhausted and fatigued person can continue.
In John 7:16 Jesus answered, “My teaching is not my own. It comes from the one who sent me."(1)
Does your teaching come from Him? Has He taught you the words that sustain the weary? When is the last time He woke you up to teach you? Were you open to being taught at such an inconvenient time?
God redeems many moments for us. Even those sleepless nights that seem to tire us out.
