How To Start Your Day
‘Open my eyes that I may see wonderful things in Your law.’
— Psalm 119:18
Oh, how we underestimate the power made available to us when we spend time with God. Our earthly eyes are so limited because they don’t allow us to see what is happening in the heavenly realm. A daily battle is being fought for our attention and our devotion.
Satan would love nothing more than to keep us separated from the power God gives us during our time with Him.
It’s time to stop feeling guilty and ill-equipped and start embracing the incredible privilege of meeting with Jesus every day.
Remember, this time doesn’t have to be perfect to be powerful and effective. Jesus just wants a willing soul to come to Him — to verbalize his/her desire to seek Him and acknowledge his/her need for Him. Then He’ll show you how to make each moment with Him exactly what you need.
Before you start your time with the Lord, pray a very simple prayer to usher your heart into the right place with God.
Desire to see Him working in you, around you, and through you.
Seek to hear His voice so clearly that you won’t doubt when He asks for your obedience.
Ask to know Him — not just facts about Him — but really know Him personally and intimately.
And lastly, follow wholeheartedly after Him, to be the woman or man that He wants you to be in every circumstance of your day.
When you verbalize your heart’s desire for Him like this on a daily basis, something inside you will shift and you’ll receive God’s Word in a fresh way.
Psalm 119:18 says “Open my eyes that I may see wonderful things in your law.” A request God delights in answering.
Don’t just read and pray to check it off the to-do list. See this time, instead, as preparation for the great adventure of life are about to head off on together in the hours ahead.
Now that is how to start your day, every day with God.
Dear Lord, I want to see You. I want to hear You. I want to know You. Please help me recognize Your presence in my day today so that I can live to please you. Dear Holy Spirit, Let your person transform me more today and every day,
In Jesus Name I pray. Amen.
