Default Start Your Day Right

Start Your Day Right

O God, You are my God; early will I seek You.... - Psalm 63:1 NKJV

There is nothing more vital to living an effective, intentional, on-purpose life than spending daily time with God. This is a foundational biblical truth for any believer who wants to go beyond ordinary and live the extraordinary life Jesus died to give us.

Every day is part of our journey with God, and we find strength for the journey by seeking Him early and consistently. Form the habit of beginning to talk with Him before you even get out of bed. Thank Him for another day, and ask Him to help you live it for His pleasure.

The Bible teaches us that God is the Source of all things (see I Corinthians 8:6). Because God is our Source, daily time spent with Him is more than a devout obligation—it is a divine opportunity! It is our opportunity to be strengthened, encouraged, healed, equipped and empowered for the day ahead.

If we fail to plug in to God by spending time with Him, we will be disappointed and unhappy when we find that we need power and we have none. Take a branch off of a vine and watch it for a few days as an experiment. Each day it looks a bit more lifeless and in only a few days it is dead! That is the way we are too. Off the Vine (Jesus), it doesn’t take us long to lose our vitality, energy, zeal, enthusiasm, passion, determination and joy. He is our Source!

In much the same way that a river is only as strong as its source, you and I are only as strong as our connection to God. When we purpose to spend time with Him by studying His Word and talking with Him, thanking and worshipping Him, we are filled with wisdom, strength and courage for whatever is ahead, no matter how challenging it may be.

Pray: Lord, You are the Source of my strength, wisdom, joy and every good thing in my life. Please help me to make a habit of seeking You each and every day. Amen.

From the book Seize the Day by Joyce Meyer.
