Let The Morning Bring Word of Your Unfailing Love – Psalm 143:8

Let the morning bring me word of Your unfailing love,
    for I have put my trust in You.
Show me the way I should go,
    for to You I entrust my life.

Reflection

There are many verses in the Bible that talk about “morning” prayer, or morning conversations with God. Jesus Himself set a powerful example by oftentimes getting up early in the morning and going alone to a quiet place to talk with God. In today’s psalm, the psalmist also prays early — petitioning God to “show him the way” saying, “for to You I entrust my life.” Long before having the example of Jesus to emulate, the psalmist knew that utilizing the early part of the day to praise God and listen for His instruction was not only wise … but highly effective.

What we garner from both Scripture and biblical theology is that the Lord values spending the early morning hours with us. Those peaceful moments of the day consecrated solely for Him. Not only does the Lord enjoy this time with us (how sweet is He?!), He uses it to guide us and to impart divine wisdom upon us. Therefore, we should do everything in our power to spend this precious time with Him as often as possible. It is here that we will hear the gentle whispers of the Holy Spirit — comforting and leading us, instructing us for the day ahead.

Let us remember also that every morning is a treasured gift. The most valuable gift in the world representing new life, fresh beginnings, and strong hope for the future. When we seek the Lord first thing in the morning, giving Him the first fruits of our day, we not only emulate the actions of our Lord, Jesus Christ, we are also showing Him that He is a top priority in our lives. And whenever we put God first, He promises to take care of everything else. There is no out-giving God in generosity. So as you spend time with Him this morning, prepare also for your blessing.

Prayer

Father in Heaven, we know we can do no good thing without being firmly rooted in You. You have said in fact, “I am the Vine, you are the branches; the one who remains in Me, and I in him bears much fruit, for apart from Me you can do nothing” (Jn 15:5). We ask today, Lord, for the grace of perseverance. Help us to make prayer a more regular and honored time in our lives, and to always keep You as our first priority. As we fix our eyes on You, we humbly pray also that You would calm the storm(s) ahead as we faithfully follow You into them. We love You and we trust in You. It is in Your good and Holy Name we pray, Amen.
