3 Reasons to Start Your Day with God


  1. You asked. 🙂 For forty years I have awakened, and had my Bible reading and prayer time spent with the Lord. Just about fifteen years ago I was getting up early to take my wife to work at 5 a.m. I was getting up at 4 a.m. to read and pray; then take her to work. I was the pastor of a different church at that time, so that was my ministry or work.
    When we moved to another area I just started getting up sometimes at 2 a.m. for reading, prayer and Bible study. It is the best time of the day for me.
    Some nights when I go to bed I am about like a child at Christmas; and cannot wait to get up to see what present God has for me today.

  2. As a former morning person, one of my favorite scriptures is Psalm 5:3. I really don’t see a reason to pray if I have no faith in the recipient. If I do have faith in Him, though – and in my motivation – I can calmly wait in expectation.

    Weird little aside: when I was a morning person, my quiet time was at night. Now that I’m not, my quiet time is in the morning. Go figure.

  3. Waking early is such a struggle for me. I know I need it and my day is such a failure without first being with the Lord. But my flesh is so weak! I needed this encouragement today!
