Morning Person

By: Patricia Charlton

ďListen to my voice in the morning, Lord.Ē Psalm 5: 3 NLT

God is a morning person. For some of us, the morning is a time for sleep. We drag out tired, half-asleep bodies out of bed. The farthest thing from our minds is an encounter with God. Only the aroma from a freshly brewed coffee stimulates our bodies to move. Like a zombie we follow our noses towards the source. After an eye-opening encounter with our coffee mugs we are ready to meet God. Are you like me? Every morning you drag your body out of bed.

The problem with night owls is staying alert for the morning person. Since God is a morning person, you night owls better prepare yourself for the next early morning encounter with Jesus. If you donít think that alertness is important, then think again. How will you feel if at the next business or parent teacher meeting, the person across the table was half-asleep? If you are not alert to that personís needs, desires and answers, how can you intelligently handle the encounter?

Wanting God to hear our voice in the morning requires that we are available to hear His answer. The next part to this verse mentions your requests. We all have things that God can and will do for us. Gaining His approval may depend on how we handle His answers. There are times that God requires that you wait expectantly for your answer. If you and I are half-asleep we may miss an all-important answer to our pressing situations. God is alert to our needs and desires. Are you alert to Godís need for meaningful fellowship?

There are benefits to meeting in the morning. Firstly, the desires, needs, and questions are fresh on your mind. Secondly, you have the whole day for God to answer your request. A whole day of listening, watching and imagining Godís answer. Waiting is not such a bad thing but an experience with an all-powerful God.

The simple truth to your next early morning encounters with Jesus - wake up and smell the coffee.
