Every morning you have the opportunity to set the tone for your whole day by putting God first. When you do that and go out with a grateful attitude and a positive spiritual frame of mind, not only will you feel better, but youâ€™re going to draw in all the blessings of God, and pave the way for success and victory.
If you wake each morning thinking, â€œman, lifeâ€™s a drag. Nothing good ever happens for me. Itâ€™s going to be a miserable day,â€ then your day will be dismal, and throughout the day you are going to attract defeat, failure and mediocrity.
Today, make a conscious decision to start your day moving in the right direction. Find things to thank God for. Make a list of all the blessings in your life, and put it on your bathroom mirror and have your own praise party each morming. As you continually choose to set your mind on Him first thing in the morning, youâ€™ll position yourself for victory throughout the day, and enjoy the good things God has in store for you!
â€œIn the morning, Lord, you hear my voice; in the morning I lay my requests before you and wait expectantly.â€ (Psalm 5:3, NIV)
Yahweh, thank You for the gift of the morning. Father, I promise to set my mind on You each morning. Oh God, I thank You for Your goodness and mercy, I thank You for forgiving my sins and for preparing my day for victory, in Christâ€™s Name! Amen.
