“The Lord GOD has given me the tongue of those who are taught, that I may know how to sustain with a word him who is weary. Morning by morning he awakens; he awakens my ear to hear as those who are taught.” (Isaiah 50:4)

“The tongue filled with the appropriate word for ministry is the product of the ear filled with the word of God … The morning by morning appointment is not a special provision or demand related to the perfect Servant but is the standard curriculum for all disciples.” (J. Alec Motyer, The Prophecy of Isaiah, p.399)
