Meet with God in the Morning!
"Cause me to hear thy loving kindness in the morning; for in thee do I trust: cause me to know the way wherein I should walk; for I lift up my soul unto thee. Deliver me, O Lord, from mine enemies: I flee unto thee to hide me. Teach me to do thy will; for thou art my God: thy spirit is good; lead me into the land of uprightness. Quicken me, O Lord, for thy name's sake: for thy righteousness' sake bring my soul out of trouble. And of thy mercy cut off mine enemies, and destroy all them that afflict my soul: for I am thy servant." Psalm 143:8-12.
What better way could there be for each of us to begin each day than to meet alone with God in the quietness of our secret chamber. Begin the day with worship, and praise to God, and ask him to speak to us through his word, and by the Holy Spirit, and let us sense his love and concern for us. If we ask in faith, and sincerely desire that for which we ask, he will show us the right paths, and the right and proper things for us to do today. Our enemies are spiritual in nature, principalities and powers in high places, eager and ready to destroy us, and to rob us of our joy and happiness; but God will deliver us from all of them if we but ask and believe. God will show us what he wants us to do each day to serve him and accomplish his purposes.
When we meet with God the first thing in the morning, we are quickened, or made alive in the spirit and given new energy and strength for the day, and we are more aware of God's grace, and forgiveness , and provision. Meeting with God the first thing each and every day is the secret of a successful happy, fruitful life, pleasing to God.
