The voice of him that crieth in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make straight in the desert a highway for our God. Isaiah 40:3
I am a morning person. I know your shocked. I usually get up in the morning and get may day started. I have more energies in the morning and the freshness of the day only invigorates me. The trouble with being a morning person is I have such an active mind, I can think of many things I need to do and a lot of work to get accomplished. I think of people I need to pray for, messages I need to prepare and much more. The trouble with all this is, I need one on one time with my Lord, and if I am not careful will starve myself of this much needed time.
Even though I am a believer in Christ as my Savior, I need to have a daily visit with Him. I need to just be quiet and sit in his presence. Psalm 46:10 says: Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth. This quiet time is necessary for me to know Him better. I admire the men of old that could be in the presence of God and know Him without uttering a word. Elisha comes to mind, as he often said little, but did much. He knew God so very well. Oh, that I knew Him more.
Life is a journey. People are complicated. At such time we think we know that person, he/she seem to change. If people are that complicated, imagine how complicated our Lord truly is. Our learning of Him takes a lifetime. Our God isn’t like the world’s gods. Only He is omnipresent, omniscience, and omnipotent. What makes our God so superior is found in the words, “I Am.” I can mediate on, “I am the Way.” or, “I am the door.” What about, “I am the Chief Shepherd”? These three examples teach me to think upon my Lord. While I think on these characteristics of Him I become more amazed by Him.
Whether you are a morning person or not, take time to just be with God. Seek Him and ask, “What will you have me to know today?” The time will be well spent and will change your day, for sure.
