How does any Christian
make it through a day successfully without starting it right?
average person begins their day by getting out of bed, heading straight for the television and tuning in to the
morning news and weather. The first thing many do is to bombard their spirits with the things of the world.
As the twig
is bent - so grows the tree. We are what we eat... selah
Is it any wonder so
many of God's people are depressed, full of fear/anxiety, defeated, stressed and suffering from stress related illnesses?
Can we agree that the world is full of stress and offers no peace or security?
We are admonished
in scripture to guard our hearts (spirits) and to seek God early.
May I make a suggestion? Instead
of heading straight for the television to get the morning news and weather, head straight for your Bible
and get words of life, health and prosperity.
Pick it up and let the
Word of God be the first thing that creeps into your sleepy consciousness as you begin your day.
Get up an hour earlier
if you must. It is well worth the effort. If you are not sure where to start in your Bible reading go to the
"Christian Growth" tab on the navigation bar of this website for a suggestion.
Expect and resist
the opposition that will inevitably come to prevent this life transforming habit from being established in your life
(too sleepy, can't concentrate, feel awful etc.,).
Do this, and the quality
and effectiveness of your days will improve.
