Such a simple thing, making a bed.
But it sets the stage for bigger and better things.
Spending time with God early in the morning helps us focus on Him and what is important. And what is more important than seeking and doing His will?
Invite God to work in and through you during your day.
Spend time with God in the morning, and then, if you have a miserable day–tests or tough circumstances–you can still pillow your head at night rejoicing in God's presence, and that He will encourage you and give you hope for tomorrow.
The Psalmist said, "Let me hear in the morning of your steadfast love, for in you I trust. Make me know the way I should go, for to you I lift up my soul" (Psalm 143:8). And again, "Oh Lord, in the morning you hear my voice...." (Psalm 5:3a).
Jesus gave us an example of morning communion. He rose up early in the morning to pray to His Father in a solitary place (Mark 1:35).
Such a simple thing, meeting with the Father in the morning.
Such a simple-but-precious habit. A life-changing choice.
So make your bed. And then kneel down beside it and start your day with God. It's a wise choice!
Do you meet with the Lord each morning? How does it influence your decisions all through the day?
