It’s morning again. Another fresh beginning. Another opportunity to start over. I love mornings! They exude new chances and freshness and brightness and purity.
“Let the morning bring me word of Your unfailing love, for I have put my trust in You. Show me the way I should go, for to You I entrust my life.” Psalm 143:8.
The morning is the perfect time to get a fresh word from the Lord, because only He knows what I will face today. It’s the time to ask for His instructions for the day and entrust my life to Him.
As the day goes on, the newness wears off. The unexpected happens. We get tired and weary. Demands pile up. Bad news intrudes upon us. We fail, and others fail us.
We need God’s Word all day long, and we need it desperately in the morning. First thing. Before we have time to stray. Before we have time to plan. Before we have time to be faced with temptation. Before we have time to meet the needs of our families. Before we have time to act or react. We need His unfailing love, and we need His guidance.
Today, let the morning bring you freshness. Let it bring you opportunity. Let it bring you a new start. But most of all, let it bring you God’s Word of His unfailing love for you and His wisdom for the day. Put your trust in Him. There’s no better way to begin your day.
