“AS YOU GET OUT OF BED in the morning, be aware of GOD’S Presence with you. You may not be thinking clearly yet, but GOD is. Your early morning thoughts tend to be anxious ones until you get connected with The LORD. Invite GOD into your thoughts by whispering HIS Name. Suddenly your day brightens and feels more user-friendly. You cannot dread a day that is vibrant with The LORD’S Presence. You gain confidence through knowing that GOD is with you— that you face nothing alone. Anxiety stems from asking the wrong question: “If such and such happens, can I handle it?” The true question is not whether you can cope with whatever happens, but whether you and GOD together can handle anything that occurs. It is this you-and-GOD-together factor that gives you confidence to face the day cheerfully.”
In the morning, O LORD, you hear my voice; in the morning I lay my requests before you and wait in expectation. PSALM 5 : 3
O God, You are my God; Early will I seek You; My soul thirsts for You; My flesh longs for You In a dry and thirsty land Where there is no water. PSALM 63 : 1 (NKJV)
I can do everything through him who gives me strength. PHILIPPIANS 4 : 13
Prayer: Lord help me to be more aware of my presence with you. I invite you into my thoughts, align them with your will. Thank you that I face nothing alone. You are always with me, willing to fight my battles for me. I rest in your promises. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
