Wielding an instructed tongue

The Sovereign LORD has given me an instructed tongue, to know the word that sustains the weary. He wakens me morning by morning, wakens my ear to listen like one being taught.

This verse is sweet. I keep seeing it in different places. I used to be so envious of people with spirtual gifts different than my own (like prophecy or discernment). But man, encouragement is a sweet gift! When I read this verse, My heart rejoices"Amen Lord, bring it!

Lord, sorry for despsing your good gifts. Thank you that you desire to give me an instructed tongue that can sustain the weary. May my lips be used for edifucation and glorification, not destruction. Thank you that you waken my ear to listen like one being taught, may my ears be more attentive to your voice. This week I pray, your soverignty would instuct my tongue to sustain the weary ones you bring onto my path.
