5 Minutes a day / 5 Days a week
Psalms 5:1-3 (KJV)
1 Give ear to my words, O LORD, consider my meditation. 2 Hearken unto the voice of my cry, my King, and my God: for unto thee will I pray. 3 My voice shalt thou hear in the morning, O LORD; in the morning will I direct my prayer unto thee, and will look up.
Has someone ever been talking to you and you didn't hear a word they said? Maybe you just weren't interested in what they were saying, or you had something else on your mind.
We have all done it. But you know what? God has never done it to you.
Here in today's devotional, we read of King David, speaking to God.
David's saying that in the morning I will be talking to you, please listen to me and not only listen but speak to me also.
Not just tomorrow morning, but every morning.
David spent each and every morning with the Lord, and not just talking, but listening to God speak back to him (meditation).
To meditate is not sitting in a funny position with your legs all tangled up and chanting.
It's talking to God and then being silent so you can listen to God.
God wont speak to you in a audible voice (but He could) God speaks to us through His word.
Today may your prayer be that you will spend time with the Lord every morning, speaking to Him and listening to Him.
I love to talk to the Lord as I'm driving to work every morning. It takes me about 20 minutes to drive to work and that's 20 minutes in the morning with God.
Think about yesterday's devotional, and about what your priorities are.
