Throughout the night the Lord watches over us, and when we awaken He is there with us and He hears our prayers. David prayed to God, saying,“In the morning You hear my voice, O Lord; in the morning I prepare (a prayer, a sacrifice) for You and watch and wait (for You to speak to my heart). (Psalm 5:3) David began His day by submitting his will to God and waiting on Him. The best way to begin our day is to commit it to the Lord first thing in the morning. That means we put Him in charge of it. We ask for His will to be done. We trust that He will lead us along the best path for our life. And we know that He is always with us.
Commit your Ways - Begin Your Days
When we begin our day with God, we are more conscious of His presence with us throughout the day. Every morning we can practice His presence by emptying our minds of negativity and worries, and filling it with the awareness of God - acknowledging Him as the name above all names and the One who meets all of our needs.He is our Healer, Hiding Place, Strength, Deliverer, Counselor, Friend, Security, Peace,Restorer.... Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths. (Proverbs 3:5-7)
We can commit our day to God by praying whatever is on our hearts. There is no set rule or ritual we must follow. Some mornings we may feel a greater need to submit a certain area of our lives to Him. We may need to give Him our fears and trust Him more. Or we may need to be open and obedient to His direction and guidance.
