I love them that love me: and they that in the morning early watch for me, shall find me. Proverbs 8 : 17
Good morning, friends.
I love listening to songs when I am about to sleep. I have lots of Don Moen's songs in my mobile phone and I love hearing them again and again. So by the time I get up in the morning, sufficient charge will not be there in the battery. So as soon as I get up, I've to charge the battery. If I fail or if I feel lazy to do it, I've to do it in my office. Sometimes I forget to bring my charger. Or I won't be able to charge it at all, because of various other reasons. But when I think of client calls, I regret for being lazy. Now-a-days, I don't forget charging the battery in the morning.
God reminded me something from it. Proverbs 8 : 17 says, "Those who seek me early in the morning, shall find me". Friends, the Lord clearly says that He needs us in the early morning. He longs for us to come into His presence as soon as we wake up. But if we ignore His word, and if we try to do it later, we may not be able to find time in our BUSY schedule. Even if we have Bible software in the mobile, or lots of websites to read the chapters in the Bible or even if we have small handy Bible in our hands, we fail to read it and pray when we keep postponing and finally end up only in a guilty feeling that we didn't seek God. (I know many of us don't even have that guilty feeling.) It is necessary that we should spiritually get charged before we leave our home. Remember every day is a perfect gift from the Lord, which we get unconditionally. If suppose God make it a conditional blessing, that if you don't spend at least half an hour or one hour with Him, you won't be able to walk at all for the entire day, how many of us would go out of our home? But our God is really awesome and decent enough and he doesn't force anyone to come to Him. He just whispers and not shouts. It is up to you to choose whether you'll listen to it or ignore it.
'You are my strength, when I'm weak' song has this line. 'Seeking you as a precious jewel..' Are you seeking Him as a precious jewel? 'Come into His presence with thanksgiving in your heart and give Him praise'.
