TALK TO GOD IN THE MORNING
One of the greatest blessings I have received is to join my brothers and sisters in Christ in the Church Without Walls. This worship service starts my day. I am able to talk to the Lord early in the morning along with fellow believers. Yes, I know that some callers become disenchanted by the disruptions of people not muting their phones, falling asleep and snoring. Nevertheless, to those who find it difficult to continue, I say that if that is the only thing that happens during the course of the day, we are blessed. Each day when we awaken, we hear tragic news. We know that without God on our side, we could be part of that news. So, it is a blessing to thank God early in the morning for a new day! It is better than a cup of coffee. It is better than jogging or walking for exercise. It is refreshing! Today’s scripture lesson is in Psalm 90:14.
“Satisfy us each morning with Your unfailing love, so we may sing for joy to the end of our lives.”
The psalmist calls upon the Lord, recognizing the blessings of God’s unfailing love. He knows that when he calls on the Lord in prayer, he is able to sing for joy. He recognizes the blessings of beginning each morning by acknowledging the goodness and kindness of the Lord. He shares these poetic words that flow from his heart, because he has discovered the wondrous joy of meeting God early in the morning. Before the sun comes up, he begins his day by taking time to pray. As I close, I invite you to join us in the morning for the Church Without Walls. The number is on the back of this devotion. Oh, taste and see that the Lord is good.
