First Thing in the Day
by Dr. Dan Sharp, Minister of Worship
What is the first thing that happens when you realize you have awakened in the morning, even before you get out of bed? What if before anything else, you talked with the Lord? You could pray that He would be exalted throughout the world. That many people would come to faith.
There are a host of other things you could pray about. You could ask Him to give you His perspective on every part of what lay ahead. You could ask Him to help you walk in the path He has designed for you that day. You could thank Him for the night’s rest.
By starting the day from your first conscious moments this way, you begin the morning with the Lord–front and center in your life. Psalm 5:3 says, ”In the morning, O Lord, you hear my voice; in the morning I lay my requests before you.” What a great way to start the day. Tuning our hearts at the beginning of the day, makes for a greater day. Read Psalm 5 today.
