In verse 4, Isaiah shares his experience of waking up each morning with the word of God in his ear. For that to be true, he must have committed his first moments of each day to be listening.
What is your morning routine? Where do your thoughts go in your waking moments? To what degree do you spend some time each morning listening for what God might be speaking to your heart? What might be helpful in creating space – physical or spiritual – for a morning ritual of listening?
Think of an awakening prayer to recite to yourself each morning upon waking. It may be a verse from scripture, like “May the words of my mouth and the thoughts of my heart be pleasing to you, O Lord, my rock and my redeemer” or even more simply, “Here I am, Lord.”
