I received a good reminder in yesterday’s portion of the One-Year Bible:

“In the morning, LORD, You hear my voice; in the morning I lay my requests before You and wait expectantly.” (Psalm 5:3).

How would our comfort of faith and effectiveness for the Lord be different if our hunger for God were as consistent and persistent as our hunger for food?


Is it not true that in the morning, we hear our stomach’s voice as it makes its requests known and waits expectantly?

Is it not also true that our stomach often exacts more obedience from us than does our faith?

Actually, my stomach is growling just now as I write this.

Funny, huh?

I’ll probably grab a bowl of cereal or some toast after this time of reading scripture, prayer and writing the Morning Devotion.

You and I would both be better off if we could say that our faith had complete control over our bodies 100 percent of the time.

Until our faith has more influence than our growling stomachs 100 percent of the time, or over our wandering eyes, or over our wagging tongues, then we still have room for improvement.

Let’s move closer to being the people who God wants us to be.

Let’s make sure that we start every morning by listening to His voice via time in the Word, time in prayer and time with reading devotional doses such as the Morning Devotion.

Such will move us closer to the being the persons that God expects.

As always, I love you
