Connecting to Christ

“In the morning, O Lord, You hear my voice; in the morning I lay my requests before You and wait in expectation.” – Psalm 5:3

When we begin our day with God, and present our requests before Him, He hears our voices and we ought to wait in expectation for our Heavenly Father to move mightily on our behalf.

There is no request too great or too small for our Redeemer.  If we need strength, He provides; if endurance, stamina is supplied.  If we need help, He grants His hands through willing vessels that are ready to work.  He cares about the details in our day, and longs for His kids to come close.  Conversations with Christ as our day commences, ready our hearts and minds to hear Him as our day unfolds.  He is happy to hear our hearts, and is ever ready to answer our calls.

He is, where we are not.

Dear Heavenly Father, thank You that You hear my voice and heart, individually, and that You are my ever-present help.  Lord Jesus, I lay down my request before You, and remember that You are the One to whom I’ve given the reigns to rule my life.  Lead us, supply us, and empower each of us to listen and wait expectantly for You to be God in all things at all times.  May the mountains You have moved, ever remind us of the remarkable Redeemer You are, and please allow Your light, that lives in us, to shine brightly before all whom we encounter.  All glory and honor and praise to You, God.  Amen.

  1. Yesterday morning I was getting ready for a medical appt–in the shower I was praying, and I was thanking God that He is sovereign over Every Minute of my day. I’m convinced that affirmation of truth set the positive tone for my whole day–everything went great! Thank you Lord. God bless you, Shannon–love, sis Caddo

  2. So true – may we continue to remember “the mountains he has moved” and bring all things before Him each morning.
