In the morning, Lord, you hear my voice;
in the morning I lay my requests before you
and wait expectantly.
There is something powerful about starting our day with our hearts and minds fixed on Jesus. Whether you wake up before the sun ascends from the horizon or when it’s high the high sky. Whether you wake up perky and cheerful or groggy and grumpy, you get to choose the first thing you will do.
Will it be to turn on the news, check your email, or scroll Instagram? Or will it be to tune your heart to God’s voice?
In Psalm 5, David declares with confidence that God hears his voice. We can have the same confidence. We can trust that whether we whisper or weep or shout or praise, God hears us. Like an attentive parent always listening for their children’s voices, so God is eagerly waiting for the sound of our voices. He loves it when His daughters call out to Him.
So let’s follow the psalmist’s lead today and speak to the Lord. Let’s tell God what we need and wait expectantly for Him to answer.
