Morning by morning I awaken you and open your understanding to My will. I’m always mindful of you, beloved. I never sleep, so I’m able to watch over you while you’re sleeping. When you wake up in the morning, I am still with you. As you become aware of My loving Presence, I help you become more alert—smoothing out the tangles in your mind and enabling you to see Me more clearly. I invite you to spend time enjoying My Presence and nourishing your soul with My Word. When you respond to My Love-call by drawing nearer to Me, I am delighted.
This time dedicated to Me blesses and strengthens you immensely. I open your understanding to My Word—enabling you to comprehend Scripture and apply it to your life. As you make plans for your day, I help you discern My will. This collaboration with Me empowers you to handle whatever comes your way as you go through the day. I am training you to trust Me at all times—in all circumstances.
The Lord God has given me his words of wisdom so that I may know what I should say to all these weary ones. Morning by morning he wakens me and opens my understanding to his will.
How precious are your thoughts about me, O God. They cannot be numbered! I can’t even count them; they outnumber the grains of sand! And when I wake up, you are still with me!
Draw near to God and He will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners; and purify your hearts, you double-minded.
— James 4:8
Trust in him at all times, O people; pour out your hearts to him, for God is our refuge.
