Recently the Lord sent a message to me: He was jealous of my time and wanted me to start meeting with Him each morning.
Off and on through the years that has been my practice, but then life takes over. I have recommitted to having this early morning sunrise time with my Father and I look forward to meeting with Him.
Cause me to hear Your loving-kindness in the morning, for on You do I lean and in You do I trust. Cause me to know the way wherein I should walk, for I lift up my inner self to You.
In the morning You hear my voice, O Lord; in the morning I prepare [a prayer, a sacrifice] for You and watch and wait [for You to speak to my heart].
But I will sing of Your mighty strength and power; yes, I will sing aloud of Your mercy and loving-kindness in the morning; for You have been to me a defense (a fortress and a high tower) and a refuge in the day of my distress.
I want Him to have the beginning of each day.
I need Him!
He wants me.
He is jealous for me.
He is jealous for you too!
He wants you!
I edited this post to add this song: How He Loves Us. After this post I couldn’t get it out of my head. Enjoy!
