“My voice shalt thou hear in the morning, O LORD; in the morning will I direct my prayer unto thee, and will look up.” Psalm 5:3
I was reading my Bible, and praying one morning, when the words of the song “I Will Meet You in The Morning” started running through my mind. Instead of the real lyrics, here’s what came to my mind:
I will meet Him in the morning, in my favourite rocking chair.
There we will commune together, read His Word, spend time in prayer.
Sometimes our days get so busy, duties await us everywhere.
I must first seek His guidance, spend some time with Him in prayer.
I will meet Him in the morning when the day is at its best.
His presence will overshadow, providing perfect peace and rest.
All day long I’ll sense His presence, words of praise to Him I’ll raise.
For that meeting in the morning gives me strength to face my days.
During the last few months when everything that we felt was normal has changed, meeting the Lord in the morning has become much more meaningful and necessary. Every time we turn on the radio, or our computers, we are faced with news about the Corona Virus, hurricanes, floods, and other disasters that are happening in our world. If there ever was a time that we need to seek the face of God for guidance and strength every day, it is now.
We look forward to the day when Jesus will come again to take His people home. Then there will be no more sickness, pain, or sorrow. But until that day, we must live through what life offers, and to do so, we need the presence of God in our lives.
Did you take time this morning to open your Bible and read what the Lord has for you there? Did you take time to talk to Him and commit the day into His hand?
Prayer: Thank you Lord Jesus that you are always there and that every morning we can call on your Name and receive the strength and guidance that we need for the day. Help us to always put you first in our lives.
