The sunrise was absolutely breathtaking this morning.
It’s light completely consumed the darkness. It reminded me of this verse:
Psalm 30:5b (NLT)
Weeping may last through the night,
but joy comes with the morning.
In my last post, I mentioned the voices in my head. They have this tendency to minister to me at night and the thoughts consume me. The devil chooses the most quiet time to speak loudest.
A couple of months ago, my husband challenged me to pray that God will be the first thing I think about in the morning and the last thing I think about at night. It just doesn’t happen, it is what God was telling Joshua in Joshua chapter 1.
8 Study this Book of Instruction continually. Meditate on it day and night so you will be sure to obey everything written in it. Only then will you prosper and succeed in all you do.
He needed Joshua to understand that whatever or whoever consumes you controls you. If I let the voices in my head be the only voices I listen to , before I know they will consume me and I will begin to be everything they say that I am. The opposite is also true.
This verse gives me so much hope! His great love is the reason that I will not be consumed. He never gives up on me. His mercy never fails, they are new every morning, He is faithful even when my faith wavers. This song is my prayer each and every day, that God will consume me from the inside out.
It is a new day, a new week.
Here’s to sunshine!
Here’s to letting the Son shine in every dark and confusing situation. His light will change your perspective and warm your heart.
May you experience Him in a new way this week.
