April 5: Back to Basics – How to start the morning?

O God, thou art my God; early will I seek thee: my soul thirsteth for thee, my flesh longeth for thee in a dry and thirsty land, where no water is;

Psalm 63:1

How do we start our day with God when its hard enough just to start the day?

I heard someone on Unshackled way back when use this method, and I’ve found it works for me. Sometimes when I realize I’ve gone too long without spending time with God, I pray to God asking Him to wake me up early the next day. Without fail, each time He has.

Now just because I’m up doesn’t mean the temptation is over – my flesh likes to convince me I can pray snuggled up in the nice warm blankets of bed, but the Spirit tells me my flesh is very weak.

If you’re finding it hard to start your day with God, pray to God right now and ask Him to wake you up early tomorrow so you can start your day with Him.

And when you wake up early – don’t roll over or stay in bed. Get out of bed and pray! Your Father wants to talk to you!
