If you are anything like me, you probably have woken up early to spend time with God and pray. After that wonderful session, you get up from your chair and you walk right into your life without him. You might not even realize you do it. You just start in with your todo list and your other normal routine things and you don’t notice you are walking alone until the wrench gets thrown into your plans. Life just begins to crumble. You become frustrated and you feel defeated and you soon realize that you have ran ahead and are not walking hand in hand with God. The Lord desires you to meet with him early before you start your day so that he can speak into your heart. He also desires to lead you through your day, reminding you of who He is and of His promises.
Lets walk in the presence of the King.
Wake up my beautiful girl! Meet with me this morning and let me encourage you and speak my promises into your heart. Daughter, ready your mind and your heart, surrender it to me. Keep your ears attuned to my voice. Pay attention to my words and see how they differ from the noise of the world.
My Daughter, take my hand and walk with me. Let me lead you through your day. Let me teach you as we go. Let me show you how to be a good steward of what I have given you. Tend to your children and love them as I love you. Provide for them as I have provided for you. See them as I see you. Take their hand and lead them, speak to them as I speak to you. Daughter, go about your home preparing for your family. Prepare as I prepared a place for you. Feed them what nourishes them as I feed you the bread of life.
Daughter, walk with me. Uplift your husband as I have uplifted you. Encourage him as I have encouraged you. Submit to him as I have submitted to my father and trust in me. Forgive as I have forgiven you.
Daughter, do not let go of me or my words. Keep your eyes on me. You will walk tough roads and dark valleys but I will be there. Daughter, hear me when I say, “Do not be afraid for I am with you, I am your God!” Know, nothing can ever take you away from me. You are mine and I love you. Let us walk into this day together, hand in hand.
“The Lord is my shepherd, I lack nothing. He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters, he refreshes my soul. He guides me along the right paths for his name’s sake. Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me. You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies. You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows. Surely your goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.”
Psalm 23:1-6 NIV
