Morning Quiet Time
We all only have 24 hours in a day, but there are things that we can do to make sure we make good use of the time we do have. If you search out your local business or life Guru, they will all have their own ideas on how to maximize the day. – Efficiency begins with a plan. Be disciplined. Work from a positive mindset. Get up early and start the day with a morning quite time of meditation to set the tone…
For the record, the idea of beginning one’s day with a morning quite time did not originate with your modern-day life Guru. We only need to study our Bible to realize the concept of getting up early to start the day has much deeper roots. King David recorded a similar admonition around 1023 BC.
“Give ear to my words, O Lord, consider my meditation. Hearken unto the voice of my cry, my King, and my God: for unto thee will I pray. My voice shalt thou hear in the morning, O Lord; in the morning will I direct my prayer unto thee and will look up” (KJV). – Psalm 5:1-3
- There is no better way to start the day then to follow King David’s example. Spend time in the morning, each day with God. Get up early if you must, but set aside a specific time each day to, “Search for the Lord and for His strength; seek His face always” – Psalm 105:4.
- Read His Word, the Bible. Meditate on its meaning and application to your life.
- Speak with God through prayer sharing your fears, challenges, and desires!
- Intercede for others as you pray asking God to intervene in their lives.
- Ask God’s guidance for the day.
Later in Psalm 24, King David acknowledged the blessing that can be yours when you seek God in this way. “He will receive blessing from the Lord, and righteousness from the God of his salvation. Such is the generation of those who seek Him, who seek the face of the God of Jacob. Selah.” – Psalm 24:5- 6.
BUT I CALL TO OU FOR HELP, LORD; IN THE MORNING MY PRAYER MEETS YOU.
