Everyone must have a morning routine, although it most likely varies from person to person. Mine consists of grabbing a mug full of black coffee, getting my Bible, and sitting on the couch near the window. Depending on the time of year, it may still be dark out, or a hint of dawn breaking may be seen.
It’s my favorite time of day because of the stillness and quiet it offer, filling my soul with a calm and peace.
The words come softly. “In the morning when I rise, give me Jesus.”
The melody alone soothes and the words infuse hope and faith.
“But as for me, I will watch expectantly for the Lord; I will wait for the God of my salvation. My God will hear me. Do not rejoice over me, O my enemy. Though I fall I will rise; Though I dwell in darkness, the Lord is a light for me.” (Micah 7:7-8, NASB)
Enemies can come in many shapes ”“ hopelessness, despair, financial difficulty, a challenging child, a work deadline, health problems. An enemy is anything or anyone which comes against you. On any given day, it can be a host of situations.
What is the reminder we need to fill our hearts and minds with as we rise each morning?
