David wrote in Psalms about seeking the Lord in the morning. I have never really wondered why. There is a certain calmness that accompanies the early morning. Cars are parked in their garages, dogs are inside, televisions are off, birds are quiet, the world is at peace. It’s easier to think. It’s easier to reflect. It’s easier to hear God Spirit speak. It’s easier to find strength for the day in his word. It’s morning; soon the phones will ring, the emails will come pouring in, and the line at Starbucks will form. Offices will be abuzz, factories will be running full tilt, traffic will be flowing, and kids will need our attention. Crave that morning time with God. Carve that morning time out for God. Don’t waste it on the news, or the paper, or your email! Seek God’s word in the morning.
