There is a sweet reality – God never sleeps. I do. He doesn’t. So, if I need Him at 2 AM, He is awake. If I wake before the sparrows, He is awake. If my day is packed, He is ready for me. If my day is free, He has all the time in the world.
David says in Psalm 143:8, “Let me hear Your lovingkindness in the morning; for I trust in You; teach me the way in which I should walk; for to You I lift up my soul.”
I hear a great invitation in these verses. Do you? It is the invitation to come to God at the beginning of my day. It isn’t the only time I can come to Him, but the invitation is there: Come.
God says, “Come, because you need to hear of how I love you.” “Come, because you trust that I have the answers.” “Come, because you need to hear of how you should walk.” “Come, because you can trust me with your very soul.” “Come…”
I have all of these reasons and more to come when God invites. I do this for the people I love. I kiss my wife good morning (not absent-mindedly either!). I tell my children I love them with the same intentional purpose. I wish them a good day with that same desire. So, why wouldn’t I do the same with the lover of my soul? He invites me. Glory! He calls to me so that I will know that I am not alone. I shouldn’t miss Him.
What about you? Do you hear the invitation? What will you do about it?
Something to think about,
