Isaiah 50:4 (NASB) says:
He awakens Me morning by morning,
He awakens My ear to listen as a disciple.
The Lord God has opened My ear;
And I was not disobedient
Nor did I turn back.
This is just one of many scriptures that validates my faith that The Lord desires a relationship of personal communication with me. When I awaken, I never awaken alone; He is with me. And the quiet of the morning, before the day fully stirs in and around me, it is an ideal time to listen for His voice. His voice is there for the one who says, “I am your disciple. I believe you want to lead and teach me. I am ready to obey.”
The God who created the universe and the whole world around you, who created you, has the power to open my ears and yours, and it is His will to do so. A true disciple, who believes God wants to teach him, will not use the excuse that there is not enough time, for God knows how to make the most of even a few moments of undivided attention offered to Him in faithful response.
He awakens me morning by morning, to listen. He awakens YOU morning by morning, to listen, to be taught, to learn, to know Him. Let none of us who bear His name turn back from this precious gift!
