Mark these words! And in the morning, rising up a great while before day, he went out, and departed into a solitary place, and there prayed. – Mark 1:35
Satisfy us in the morning with your unfailing love, that we may sing for joy and be glad all our days. — Psalm 90:14
God’s mercies are new every morning and His thoughts are always for your good. Isn’t it good to know that every day we wake up to a clean slate? Embrace the day with faith and victory!
What’s the secret of having a good day? Our days can be tough. How about waking up and recognizing that we begin each day just as we ended the previous one — we are in the grip of God’s unfailing love.
God loves us more in a single moment than anyone could in a whole lifetime. That should make our hearts stir with love and our voices sing with joy. This song should stir God’s Spirit within us and lead us to a deep and profound thanksgiving that gladdens all of our days.
So rather than waking up tired, cranky, and dreading another day, let’s begin this day with a reminder of God’s grace in our daily lives and a reminder of God’s promises in our hearts. Then, I don’t think we’re going to have any problem singing the rest of the day!
Why not wake up every day expecting God to do something extraordinary, something you never thought He would do for you? Why not wake up each day fueled by faith—expecting God’s goodness!
Give life to your faith by speaking it out. Every morning when you wake up, declare God’s favor. Saying “yes” to Jesus isn’t a one-time thing. Wake up every morning and choose to say “yes” to Him in our minds, in our attitudes, and in our actions.
Every morning when you wake up, thank God that He is waking up something new in you. Make the decision to wake up every day with an attitude of faith and expectancy. Believe in yourself and step out of your comfort zone. Stay the course of faith and watch what God will do in your life!
Heavenly Father, thank you for pouring your love and joy into my heart through your Holy Spirit. Fill my heart and satisfy my life with a sense of your abiding and unfailing love. In the name of my loving Savior, Jesus. Amen.
