Ps. 5:1-3: “Give ear to my words, O Lord, consider my meditation. Give heed to the voice of my cry, my King and my God, for to You I will pray. My voice You shall hear in the morning, O Lord. In the morning I will direct it to You, and I will look up.”
Does God hear your voice in the morning? Do you direct your words to Him? Do you look up and seek His face? Do you cry out to Him, pray to Him, meditate upon His Word?
Imagine what your day would be like if you started it in the presence of the King of Kings? Think of the confidence you’d have, walking out the door when you’ve just been in the power and the presence of the Holy Spirit.
When we have allowed the Lord to hear our voice first thing in the morning, and chosen to look first to Him, we will have chosen what is most important to start our day. The problems, obstacles, and duties of the day will look much less intimidating when the joy of the Lord has become our strength.
Ps. 1:2 says that the man whose delight is in the law of the Lord, and who meditates on it day and night is blessed. “He shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that brings forth its fruit in its season, whose leaf also does not wither; and whatever he does shall prosper.” vs. 3
When we turn to God first thing in the morning, we will be strengthening ourselves, showing honor and respect to the Lord, and bringing blessings upon lives. What more could we possibly want?
Give Him the praise!
