Scripture: Isaiah 28:9-12
Isaiah 28:9-12 says, “Whom will he teach knowledge? And whom will he make to understand the message? Those just weaned from milk? Those just drawn from the breasts? For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept, Line upon line, line upon line, Here a little, there a little.’ For with stammering lips and another tongue He will speak to this people, To whom He said, ‘This is the rest with which You may cause the weary to rest,’ And, ‘This is the refreshing’; Yet they would not hear.” Does God give everything to babies? Of course, the answer is, no! Growth comes in a step by step line. It is linear. Precept upon precept and line upon line, here a little bit and there a little bit. God has a process for growth and development. With stammering lips and another tongue He will speak to this people to whom He said, this is the rest with which you may cause the weary to rest and to be refreshed. Rest in every situation only comes when we get God’s answer to it so that there is inner confidence that a solution is on the way. What is He talking about here? He is talking about the anointing to solve problems and the anointing to move mountains. He is talking about the anointing that connects us with the power needed in any given situation. Rest and refreshing come when problems are solved. Rest comes when there is assurance the mountain is moved. Rest comes when the enemy bows. God is clear in this passage. Tongues is the path that connects us with God’s power in any given situation to move mountains as well as to walk in God’s anointed composure to keep overcoming while we are waiting for the movement to take place. When mountains are not yet moving and problems still persist, it is time to pray, pray, pray and keep praying in the Spirit! Are we doing our part or are we just hoping the mountain will move? For many of us, if a complaint would move it, it would be gone by now. We have tried everything else. Let’s give tongues the time it deserves. How about a decade of praying in tongues over that persistent mountain! It is our choice.
