Morning Voice

"In the morning, Lord, you hear my voice; in the morning I lay my requests before you and wait expectantly." (Psalm 5:3 NIV)

In the Bible, David was called a man after God’s own heart. He knew God and saw incredible miracles throughout his life. Notice how in this verse David set his tone for his whole day by spending time with the Lord every morning. It didn't matter what was going on in his life, David had his priorities set. Even though he was mistreated by his family, manipulated, made fun of, hunted down by King Saul, and even made some major mistakes on his own; David realized that each morning held the promise of new hope. Just like David, if we make spending time with God a priority in our lives, we will see Him move mightily on our behalf. We should make it a habit to seek Him first every single day. No matter what is happening, seek Him in the morning. Let Him set the tone for your day and set you on the course for victory in every area of your life.

His Mercy...

"He saved us, not because of works done by us in righteousness, but according to his own mercy, by the washing of regeneration and renewal of the Holy Spirit" Titus 3:5

Isn’t it good to know that no matter what happened yesterday, no matter what you said or did, God’s mercy is new for you today, without having to work for it? Mercy is empowering. It frees us to make the right choices and live in a way that is pleasing to God. We have to always remember that God isn’t condemning us. Romans tells us that there is no condemnation for those who are in Christ. God wants to love us and equip us to overcome in this life. If you need new mercy today, receive it by faith. You don’t have to beg God to forgive you because he forgives you the first time you ask, but it’s up to you to receive that forgiveness. Open your heart today and receive His mercy. Let Him wash over you with His peace and joy.

I am in love,
With a Mighty man.
His grace and mercy covers me.
His beauty surrounds me.
My soul thirst for Him and my heart, it longs for His presence;
Longs for his faithfulness...
Living with a heart that only beats for The Most High;
My mouth will forever exalt and glorify His name... Jesus!
