Every morning is a fresh, new opportunity to live a full and enriched life, most importantly, your spiritual life walking with the Lord in relationship. Lamentations 3:22-23 reminds us, “The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness” There is not one specific method to start your day with Jesus, but there are always ways to experience Him in new ways.
1. Bible Study
Time soaking in the Word is one of the greatest ways to connect with the Lord in the morning. 2 Timothy 3:16-17 offers how, “All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.” The Holy Bible is God’s exact Word to His people, and what a beautiful gift it is that we live in an age where we have quick access to the Word in our own language! Through His Word, we can see His faithfulness from generation to generation and relate to those who have gone through trials, tests of faith, or big calls of God before. Study in the Word can also be a gift to do with someone else. Studying with a spouse is a way to forge even deeper intimacy and a way to grow in faith deeply rooted together. Time in the Word with a friend can also provide a path of cultivating Godly friendships and what it means to do life with someone through brother/sisterhood in the faith. Invite the Lord to guide you in what He has for you to glean from His Word for this very season.
