Matthew 6:33 “But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.” (NJKV)
Father – Forgive me for my wandering mind. Fill me with yourself so that my thoughts, desires and actions will reflect your character and bring you honor and glory today in every situation I face.
Child – You know that I am to be first in your life. Your obedience to get out of bed and come away are the first steps. It pleases Me that you do get up early to meet with Me even though your mind wanders at times. Quiet your mind and heart. I am here and I love you.
Since I am in you, we have twenty-four hours a day together. What makes the early morning special is that I can then be your full focus. As you are quietly reading My Word, you hear Me speak and you get strength for the encounters of the day.
You have an enemy, child. He’s out there waiting to attack. In our quiet place, you get filled again with conscious thoughts of Me, My power and My presence. Then when the attacks come, you can stand in My shadow and Satan can’t touch you.
Get energized by Me, child. I am your source of life and I prepare you and your way. Rest in Me. I will be in charge, if you let Me.
Remember we’re in the yoke together. Come, grow in Me!
