Life with God is positive and exciting! In Him, we have security and deeply rooted joy. Because of this, God wants his children to wake up each day excited about life and what the day will bring; with a spirit of expectancy. The definition of expectancy is: the state of thinking or hoping that something, especially something pleasant, will happen or be the case.
In the morning, Lord, you hear my voice; in the morning I lay my requests before you and wait expectantly. (Psalm 5:3)
Devotion: Seeking God Early In The Morning
By seeking God at the beginning of each day, we actually allow God to dictate our plans for the day. It’s true: quiet time in the Lord’s presence at the beginning of every day, will always fill us with new revelation for the day! New revelation brings about a change in your actions, thoughts, and perspective.
Satisfy us in the morning with your steadfast love, that we may rejoice and be glad all our days. (Psalm 90:14)
The Lord desires quiet moments with us in the morning, so why not get creative in finding ways to seek and experience God each day? Trying something different each morning to keep things from feeling too “routine” or boring. Some examples include prayer, listening to worship music, quietly sitting in His presence, singing, and simply confessing His word.
Time with our God is always a privilege! When we take part in it, we are filled with more joy, even more adoration for Him, and more hope for the future.
