Answers Will Come

Answers Will Come

 

Psalm 27:14

I used to wake up wishing it was night, and at night I wished it was morning; I was not enjoying my life. Now I look forward to each day. God arranged life in twenty-four hour periods; we sleep for a while, and then wake up refreshed to start all over again. God intended every morning to be a brand new start, a fresh opportunity. We can go to bed feeling hopeless and worn out, thinking; I just don’t believe I can go on. But somehow a good night’s rest renews us, and we wake up with faith again, thinking, Maybe today my breakthrough will come, and I will get an answer; I can make it one more day.

So thank God for mornings.

 

Speak Life

 

Proverbs 18:21

If we ride to work with somebody and gossip about our boss and talk about how we hate our job and what a stupid place it is, we will have a bad day. The Bible says, “A man’s [moral] self shall be filled with the fruit of his mouth; and with the consequence of his words he must be satisfied [whether good or evil]” (Proverbs 18:20). Clearly, we will have to eat our words, so we need to talk about the right things to be happy. If we murmur and gossip, we will eat the fruit of death. But if we speak life, we will eat the fruit of the Spirit (see Matthew 12:37). Choose to eat good fruit today.

 

Be Prepared

 

Deuteronomy 10:12

Complaining is death, and thanksgiving is life. Yet there are people who complain on their way to church while hoping to receive blessings. They don’t understand that complaining keeps them from getting what they want. They don’t come prepared to receive blessings in the Lord’s presence. Prepare yourself for blessings by offering thanksgiving for what God has already done for you. The Word says, “For by your words you will be justified and acquitted, and by your words you will be condemned and sentenced” (Matthew 12:37). Choose your words wisely today, and prepare yourself for God’s blessings.

 

Worship with Your Whole Heart

 

Psalm 57:2

Great worship leaders know to come into the presence of God with their entire being, prepared to give thanks and praise (see Deuteronomy 10:12). They just don’t roll out of bed, throw water on their face, and run a comb through their hair before church. They know that the anointing comes from a sincere pursuit of loving God with their whole heart. Likewise, as you approach God in the morning, come to Him with a heart full of worship, expressing your awe of Him for His faithfulness toward you. He promises that He will never forsake you, but will be with you all day long (see Joshua 1:5).
