Hotheads & Stammerers – Isaiah 32

Hotheads & Stammerers - Isaiah 32The first verse of today’s chapter caught my attention this morning:

1 Look, a righteous king is coming! And honest princes will rule under him.

Who are these honest princes? Who is the coming King?

Look at Romans 8:17 and see if you are thinking like I am:

17 And since we are his children, we will share his treasures – for everything God gives to his Son, Christ, is ours, too. But if we are to share his glory, we must also share his suffering.

In this chapter, God’s man Isaiah is telling the people of the coming of Jesus Christ. It’s hard for us to imagine hearing this back then because we’ve come on the scene after the fact. But think how this must have sounded to those listeners. Think how they must have felt when the heard the next few sentences:

2 He will shelter Israel from the storm and the wind. He will refresh her as a river in the desert and as the cool shadow of a large rock in a hot and weary land. 3 Then everyone who can see will be looking for God, and those who can hear will listen to his voice. 4 Even the hotheads among them will be full of sense and understanding. Those who stammer in uncertainty will speak out plainly.

Can you relate? I certainly can. When this righteous King comes, those with rash hearts will be full of sense and those with clumsy tongues will speak plainly.

Well, if God has told you something to share, but the enemy has come to you and told you that you have nothing to say, or that you’re clumsy in your speech – rebuke him and read this verse. Because of Christ, you DO have something to say. The righteous King has come and even though your heart may at times be rash and your tongue at times is clumsy, He will speak through you!

So – don’t hide behind the enemy’s lie any longer. Get out there and tell them what God is telling you to say!!!

peace,
e
