I Chronicles 16:10-12:
10 Glory in his holy name; let the hearts of those who seek the Lord rejoice. 11 Look to the Lord and His strength; seek His face always. 12 Remember the wonders he has done, his miracles and the judgments he pronounced.
How wonderful to realize first thing in the morning when we first wake that God causes the sun to rise for us. It is a joy to wake up and talk with him again; pause to listen and reflect on his grace and peace.
David the psalmist talked a lot about mornings, “This is the day the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.” (See Psalm 118:24) For me this verse is a great way to start my day.
As we proceed with our day take a moment to look in a mirror and say: “I am going to have a good day because Jesus loves me.”
Prayer: Lord, I thank you for my blessings and challenges each day. Guide me to remember the wonder and glory of being a Christian.
