When I woke up this morning, I started to meditate. I heard the small voice of God speaking. It’s amazing how God’s presence can change our perspective and change our entire day. Not to get too personal, but as I was preparing breakfast this morning, I felt the visitation of God. It was very strong.
First, God wants us to “COMMAND” our mornings. Take time to pray, meditate, exercise, journal, or self-reflect. These strategies can help “set” the temperament for our entire day. Daily, it’s imperative that we honor God by carving out time to converse with Him. When we fail to command our mornings by honoring God, distractions from the enemy can seep into our spirit causing physical and spiritual disruptions. When we pray, we’re equipping ourselves to withstand the blows of the enemy. Get rooted in the word when driving to work, while drinking coffee, or while sitting in bed aimlessly. Every moment that we invite God in, we willfully build a spiritual bridge that allows us to tap into God’s purpose for our lives. His word daily is food to our souls and nourishment for our bodies.
Next, God doesn’t want us to compromise. We must stand strong, and we cannot compromise our well-being in this season. Stay focus; stay mentally healthy; stress-free, and guilt-free. I must be honest; I use to compromise myself for the sake of fitting in with others. But as I continually grow in Christ, God reminds me to stand on His word as a guide for my life as noted in Jeremiah 29:11 (NIV) where it is written that God has a plan for our lives. It’s not to harm us, but these plans are to prosper us so that we’ll have hope as He guides and directs us into our future. Therefore, we must stop compromising our peace. Remember, God doesn’t function in dysfunction. He’s a man of order. That’s why it’s important that we build a relationship with God and that we converse with Him daily as we “Command Our Mornings.”
Then, God wants us to trust HIM!!! I believe that God’s building our FAITH in this season. He’s building our faith with various test and trials. Through these various test and trails, God is causing us to exercise our faith and depend totally on him. For it is written in Proverbs 3:5-6 (NIV), “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.”
Finally, God’s working a miracle in our lives. Let’s stay strong and not sway from God when situations start to look weary. Remember, God is watching during the test; he’s just quiet as He conducts an evaluation of our hearts and reactions to see if we’re walking by “faith” or walking by “sight”.
