You cause them to drink of the stream of Your pleasures. For with You is the fountain of life; in Your light do we see light. O continue Your loving-kindness to those who know You, Your righteousness (salvation) to the upright in heart. — Psalm 36:8–10 (AMPC)
Adapted from the resource Starting Your Day Right Devotional – by Joyce Meyer
I have never been much of a swimmer. I may not be the best at fighting the current, but I can float. It is wonderful just to trust the water to keep us up and go with the flow. We can trust God to keep us afloat through the rapids and lead us to still waters.
The Bible says God’s mercy and loving-kindness are new every morning (See Lamentations 3:22– 23). His mercy isn’t just there waiting for us; it is new, fresh, flowing, and powerful every new day. We need to get in the flow of God’s river of life early each day and learn to float on the power of His presence.
Prayer Starter: Lord, thank You for this new day. Help me to live this day with You, always mindful of Your presence. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
