HE WOKE US UP THIS MORNING
Every morning we wake up is a time to give God thanks! This day he woke us up, started us on our way, and provided us with His love and mercy. Each day He grants to us new mercies. Take a moment, now, to thank God for this brand, new day. In fact, take a deep breath, inhaling and exhaling, thank God for the incredible blessings of life. This brand new day: is a gift from God. Let us use this day for His glory. Do not waste this day for tomorrow is not promised. On this day, be a blessing to others and be kind, generous, loving and forgiving to someone. Express your gratitude to God for this day by sowing into the life of another. On this day, find time to meditate on God’s Word as in Isaiah 50:4.
“The Sovereign Lord has given me His words of wisdom, so that I know how to comfort the weary. Morning by morning he wakens me and opens my understanding to His will.”
Isaiah, the servant of the Lord, is grateful for this new day. He has been given the gift of speech. He prays to the Lord that He might be able to help the weary and be a blessing to someone. Isaiah wants to encourage the downhearted. He knows that the people in exile have become weary and worn. However, he wants to be a blessing to them. He knows that God has not forgotten them. When he wakes up in the morning, he wants to be guided by God’s wisdom and to hear the voice of the Lord. Isaiah wants God to open his eyes so that he might see how to be a blessing to others, and he wants Yahweh to know that he has opened his heart and is able to do what God has called him to do.
