At this moment it is 2:57 AM… I am wide awake… and writing my blog for today.
Dr. T.W. Hunt once said in a message I heard… “When I awake early in the morning, I take that as God’s call to pray.” I wish I was that spiritual, but I’m not. Or at least I’m not this morning. But I did find a few thoughts about this time of day…
Sorrow may last for the night… but joy comes in the morning (Ps 30:5).
I will sing aloud of your steadfast love in the morning. For you have been to me a fortressand a refuge in the day of my distress (Psalm 59:16).
Satisfy us in the morning with your steadfast love, that we may rejoice and be glad all our days (Psalm 90:14).
Let me hear in the morning of your steadfast love,for in you I trust. Make me know the way I should go, for to you I lift up my soul (Psalm 143:8).
And rising very early in the morning, while it was still dark, (Jesus) departed and went out to a desolate place, and there he prayed (Mark 1:35).
Early in the morning (Jesus) came again to the temple. All the people came to him, and he sat down and taught them (John 8:2).
But on the first day of the week, at early dawn, they went to the tomb, taking the spices they had prepared. 2And they found the stone rolled away from the tomb, 3but when they went in they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus (Luke 24:1-3).
The early morning is a good time to listen and seek God…
