God wakes us up! Plain and simple, and to the point. It’s not by our own might or power, but by His power alone. It is in the power of His hand, and the grace that He allows us. God loves us and has created us for His purpose. Colossians 1:16 says, “For by Him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by Him, and for Him; 17. And He is before all things, and by Him all things consist”. He is our morning glory, He’s glorious, He is our morning delight.
Take a moment, if you will to reflect. Put down your cup of coffee, your car keys, your portfolio, i-phone, and labtop. Reflect on God’s grace. It’s more easy than you might believe. The Bible says, “peace by still”. Be still for a moment and worship God. Thank Him for this day, which is a new day. Another day in our lives brings on new challenges, greatness, relations, and a new appreciation.
Once you have set everything down for a moment, and you are not taking any phone calls; you can now give God all your attention. Psalm 119:47 says, “And I delight myself in thy commandments, which I have loved.” We can’t forget to delight in His ways, in His Word. It is in Him that we live, breathe, and have our being. Praise God.
How do I delight myself in the Lord? The delight comes from the heart. Having a heart for God takes patience and love within ourselves. We have to walk in the fruits of the Spirit. The fruits are precious. They are love and patience, kindness and longsuffering. We can follow His commandments happily when we delight in Him, and we love to follow His ways. Delight yourself in Him today!
