Family in Christ Jesus,
Ah…how beautiful are the words from David’s lips to His King! Yes, let the morning bring me word of your unfailing love, Lord!
I have always tried to meet with the Lord in the morning, though in some seasons of life it has been more difficult than others (new baby, work, etc.). I just think what a perfect time to meet with God… as soon as He awakens me to another day of my limited earthly life! Before any event of the day begins, while others are sleeping and not even traffic can be heard, just a few birds chirping. God blessed me with another day of life… I thank and praise Him! I draw to Him and seek His Word, His guidance and wisdom for my day, as I know not what lies ahead, but I know Who is with me. Why would I start my day without the One Who has given it to me? A friend once told me, “Nan, starting your day without the Lord is like going onstage to play a concert and not having tuned your instrument!” Ugh!! Who would want to hear that?! No doubt, there have been days that in my dissonant words/behavior, my family and friends must have wondered, “What on earth is she playing?!” Ha! Well, could you wait just a moment while I go tune myself up?? …oh, no time now,..have to get to the next song! Yep, if we don’t put God first, we sometimes don’t put Him at all, do we? Like when I neglect to give Him the first-fruits of our income, and He ends up with the scraps after all the bills have been paid and shopping trips made. He deserves FIRST place, not anything less! (Can anyone hear me talking to myself here?)
Anyway, I just thought this Psalm was so beautiful, as it reminds me that this Relationship between me and God is powered and sustained by HIS unfailing Love, not mine! That even if I fail to give Him first place in my life, He has put me first place in His heart…. The Blood Christ shed for me proves that! “We love because He first loved us.”-1 John 4:19. And to think that He waits for me every morning, anticipating my first thought towards Him, makes me desire Him even more. Does this sound like a Love Relationship? You bet it is! You, my dear brothers and sisters in Christ, know exactly what I am talking about. Is it any wonder Jesus Christ is called our “bright and Morning Star”? Good morning, Lord, Good morning!
