“It is good to give thanks to the Lord and to sing praises to Your name, O Most High; to declare Your loving kindness in the morning and Your faithfulness by night.”
These first two verses in Psalm 92, I believe, are the secrets to a happy, fulfilled life. How we choose to begin each new day charts the course of our lives. There is nothing higher than beginning by acknowledging the goodness of God, and all His loving kindness He pours out to the ones who lift their cups to Him. I must confess the general population cares much more for their coffee to begin their day than time in His Presence giving thanks and praise. Coffee does nothing to prepare your heart, mind, and spirit for the demands of your day.
Then if we would end our day in His Presence recalling His faithfulness as we reflect on what transpired we would all sleep more peacefully.
He deserves first place in all things as stated in Colossians 1:18. We are promised if we seek Him first all things will be added in Matthew 6:33. Enjoy that cup of coffee, but allow Him first place, and enjoy your day with fewer regrets!
In His love.
Beginning my day in His Presence enjoying this view from my bedroom window. How easy it is to give thanks and praises for His loving kindness and faithfulness!
