When I wake up early in the morning, I really don’t feel like praying or reading God’s Word. I’m tired and would like to go back to sleep. But I don’t know what kind of day it is going to be and if I don’t spend that time with the Father, I’ll be unprepared for it.
Every day brings something new. A new opportunity to share my faith, to help someone; to resist some temptation; to overcome some obstacle; to face a tragedy; to experience a blessing from God. There’s a song that says, “The path that is my portion may be through the flame or flood, but His presence goes before me, and I’m covered with His blood.”
Take time each day to enter His presence and you will be prepared for the path that awaits you.
“Though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me.” Psalm 23:4
