"Very early in the morning, while it was still dark, Jesus got up, left the house and went off to a solitary place, where he prayed. Simon and his companions went to look for him, and when they found him, they exclaimed: “Everyone is looking for you!” Jesus replied, “Let us go somewhere else—to the nearby villages—so I can preach there also. That is why I have come.” (Mark 1:35 NIV)
The morning is my favorite part of the day. The day is still fresh still new and unspoiled. It is also the most peaceful time of day. The other day God led me outside to my staircase landing that over looks the parking lot. As i stood there looking over the parking lot and trees that boarder it, felt this awesome peace. I began to talk with God, I dont remember all we talked about but i know God said come back and lets talk again soon. That 15-20 mins with God set the tone for my day. It Just Flowed!
Jesus often got up early to pray and talk with the father. Why? To prepare him for the events of that day or week. I believe when Simon and his companions found Jesus, Jesus got all the instruction he needed for that day. God wants to be involved in our day. What better way to put him first by giving him the beginning of our day. The same awesome experience i had awaits you. So before you get caught up in the busyness of the day, let God download some peace and clear instructions for your day. You wont be disappointed!
God Bless & Much Love
