Some of you shared your frustration when it comes to spending time with God. I understand. At first, I didn’t know where to begin even though I longed to be intimate with Him. I desired the Lord’s presence and power in my life, and I knew those things flow from a sweet and sincere relationship with Jesus.
Like you, my feet are running before they hit the floor on most mornings. Life is busy, stressful, and unpredictable. Which are all good reasons for starting our day with the One who already knows what the day holds. Let’s be honest. Nothing is more important than God and meeting with him each morning.
Once I’ve settle into my big, chocolate-brown chair, I start with adoration. First, I choose a passage of scripture that speaks of God’s marvelous wonders. Then, mediate on it. That means to think about what God is saying or what it’s saying about God. This will help you know God, love God, and adore God more than you thought you could.
Today, I chose Ps 145:3-7. “Great is the LORD and most worthy of praise; his greatness no one can fathom. 4 One generation will commend your works to another; they will tell of your mighty acts. 5 They will speak of the glorious splendor of your majesty, and I will meditate on your wonderful works. 6 They will tell of the power of your awesome works, and I will proclaim your great deeds. 7 They will celebrate your abundant goodness and joyfully sing of your righteousness.”
It’s not always easy to understand God’s Word and grasp the full meaning. That’s why you and I must give it time for His words to sink into your heart and mind. Eventually, if you stay long enough, you become compelled to bow in great adoration before God—for the things He has done and for the things he is doing.
I hope this helps you in your time with God today. Now, go! He’s waiting for you.
