How We Strengthen Ourselves In The Lord Our God - Part 3 (In The Morning)
Today’s Word of Encouragement From Wayne:
“But as for me, I shall sing of Your strength; yes, I shall joyfully sing of your lovingkindness in the morning, for You have been my stronghold and a refuge in the day of distress”
If you want to know and to grow in the knowledge of God as your stronghold, then learn to bless and confess His lovingkindness and strength in the morning, as soon as you awaken.
Establish Who your strength is right away, every day.
“Joyfully sing” of His lovingkindness in the morning, which strengthens you in the Lord your God, and you will be less likely to be overwhelmed or fall apart “in the day of distress.”
I encourage you to strongly, pro-actively, take hold of your stronghold this very day and minister to God in the refuge of His presence. “Awake, my glory! Awake, harp and lyre! I will awaken the dawn. I will give thanks to You, O Lord” (Psalm 57:8) is what David wrote when he had fled from Saul in a day of distress.
As you and I learn through practice the benefits and the blessings of going to God first, at the top of the day, every day, praising and glorying in Him, then we realize we are in a favored position, from that moment forward, to effectually know God as our One true strength throughout our entire day.
David knew and confessed God this way. So let us learn all we can from David, concerning how he “strengthened Himself in the Lord His God” (1st Samuel 30:6).
Awakening the dawn with praise was definitely something David extolled and recommended. I recommend this too.
Bless God as soon as you arise each day. Yes, you are so blessed to bless your Lord!
Thank You Lord. “As for me, I shall sing of Your strength; yes, I shall joyfully sing of your lovingkindness in the morning, for You have been my stronghold and a refuge in the day of distress.”
Yes beloved, “awaken the dawn” with praises to your God, confessing Him as “my stronghold.” Hallelujah!
