Listen to my voice in the morning, Lord. Each morning I bring my requests to you and wait expectantly.
— Psalm 5:3 (NLT)
Adapted from the resource Power Thoughts Devo – by Joyce Meyer
Many times the way your morning starts is the way it is going to go all day. That’s why the enemy tries so hard to get us in a bad frame of mind early in the day. Have you found the enemy trying to make you angry or worried about something—anything—to fill your mind with sour thoughts before the day has even started? Does he try to get you upset about traffic or the possibility of a long line at the bank or doctor’s office before you’ve even left your house?
Guess what—you can make your mind up early in the morning to enjoy each aspect of your day, whether everything goes the way you planned or not. Your mind is the battlefield. When you start to choose right thoughts early in the morning, you’ll begin to walk in more and more victory.
Prayer Starter: Father, please help me establish a pattern of thinking right in the morning, so my whole day can be better. Thank You for giving me the grace to expect good things, and for making a way for me to enjoy my life. In Jesus’ name, amen.
