“In the morning You hear my voice, O Lord; in the morning I prepare [a prayer, a sacrifice] for You and watch and wait [for You to speak to my heart].” (Psalms 5: 3, Amplified Bible)
A waking thought of God and a prayer to Him is a powerful and assuring beginning to our day. Our part in God’s day is to turn to Him with willingness and receptivity. And there is sacrifice and silent patience involved as well.
What do we need to sacrifice? We must give up a belief in personal control. We must relinquish our pre-conceived notions about what we want or what is right and good. We must offer up our reliance on and preoccupation with others and what they are thinking and any undue focus on that which is material, unlike God Who is infinite Spirit.
God is with us and His clear and pure thoughts are always available to us. His Love is precise and powerful and present. We can open our eyes to the morning and let His sun rise upon our darkness, revealing what is just right for this day at a time that is just right for us and for all.
God is with you when you wake, ready to Love you into your day, for He has never left you. He watched over you all night and will be with you in every moment of His glorious new day.
