With all the chaos going on around us these days it is easy to start the day with news updates, social media updates and the like. This morning I was reminded by the words penned by David the best and most effective way to start every day.
Give ear to my words, O LORD, consider my meditation. Give heed to the voice of my cry, my King and my God, for to You I will pray. My voice You shall hear in the morning, O LORD. In the morning I will direct it to You, and I will look up. (Psalm 5:1-3)
It is so important we start each day acknowledging the very presence of God in our lives. Through Christ, we can boldly come before the throne of God and make our petitions known. He longs to hear us cry unto Him and seek Him in every step of our day.
Today, rather than start your day looking at things horizontal, why not look up? After all it is the LORD alone that can really make a difference in our lives and in the lives of those we have the opportunity to impact.
Today LORD we choose to look up and acknowledge you first and foremost before we attempt to weave ourselves through the day! Thank you for giving ear to our words! Thank you for hearing our cries! We bless your name this day!
