Give God the first moments of your day

‘Early will I seek You.’ Psalm 63:1 NKJV

What are the first moments of your day like? Do you turn on the TV, or rush into the bathroom, or allow your ‘to do’ list to come rushing in? Instead, try lying there quietly and allowing God to speak to you. With your mind clear and your heart open, He will give you insights, ideas, solutions to problems, and the knowledge that He will be with you today.

Author Colleen Townsend Evans writes: ‘Silence need not be awkward or embarrassing, for to be with one you love without the need for words is a beautiful and satisfying form of communication. I remember times when our children used to come running to me, all of them clattering at once about the events of their day—it was wonderful to have them share their feelings with me. But there were also times when they came to me wanting only to be held, to have me stroke their heads and caress them into sleep. And so it is, sometimes, with us and God our Father. At times your most powerful prayers will be thoughts rather than words. Your words are limited by your vocabulary, but your thought life is an arena of infinite capacity in which God can give you life-changing concepts.’

Paul writes, ‘We have the mind of Christ.’ (1 Corinthians 2:16 NIV) So be still and let Him think His thoughts through you. John writes, ‘You have an anointing from the Holy One, and you know all things.’ (1 John 2:20 NKJV) God can cause you to ‘know’ what you need to do, so give Him the first moments of your day.
