MORNING GLORY – LIVING IN THE KINGDOM
UNDERSTANDING NATURES RESPONSE TO GOD AND HIS SONS
It is a generally accepted phenomenon that some people function better in the morning
GOD SEEMS to attach some serious importance to the morning.
HE GIVES THE MORNING IT’S ASSIGNMENT
“Have you ever given orders to the morning,
or shown the dawn its place,
13 that it might take the earth by the edges
and shake the wicked out of it?
14 The earth takes shape like clay under a seal;
its features stand out like those of a garment.
15 The wicked are denied their light,
and their upraised arm is broken.
A TIME OF THANKSGIVING
1 Chronicles 23:30
They were also to stand every morning to thank and praise the Lord. They were to do the same in the evening
STRENGTH IN THE MORNING
Lord, be gracious to us;
we long for you.
Be our strength every morning,
our salvation in time of distress.
A TIME OF PRAYERS REQUESTS AND QUIETLY WAITING FOR ANSWERS
In the morning, Lord, you hear my voice;
in the morning I lay my requests before you
and wait expectantly.
A TIMELY WORD
Let the morning bring me word of your unfailing love,
for I have put my trust in you.
Show me the way I should go,
for to you I entrust my life.
A TIME TO REARRANGE THE STUFF THAT KEEPS THE FIRE BURNING
The fire on the altar must be kept burning; it must not go out. Every morning the priest is to add firewood and arrange the burnt offering on the fire and burn the fat of the fellowship offerings on it.
In our case, read, meditate, confessions, affirmations and prayers with thanksgiving
TIMELY MIRACLE PROVISIONS SHALL REACH US
1 Kings 17:6
The ravens brought him bread and meat in the morning and bread and meat in the evening, and he drank from the brook.
2 Kings 3:20
The next morning, about the time for offering the sacrifice, there it was—water flowing from the direction of Edom! And the land was filled with water.
MANNA WAS ALWAYS AVAILABLE IN THE MORNING
CONFUSION TO THE ENEMY
2 Kings 3:22-25
When they got up early in the morning, the sun was shining on the water. To the Moabites across the way, the water looked red—like blood. 23 “That’s blood!” they said. “Those kings must have fought and slaughtered each other. Now to the plunder, Moab!”
24 But when the Moabites came to the camp of Israel, the Israelites rose up and fought them until they fled. And the Israelites invaded the land and slaughtered the Moabites. 25 They destroyed the towns, and each man threw a stone on every good field until it was covered. They stopped up all the springs and cut down every good tree. Only Kir Hareseth was left with its stones in place, but men armed with slings surrounded it and attacked it.
PARTIES ARE INAPPROPRIATE IN THE MORNING
Woe to the land whose king was a servant
and whose princes feast in the morning.
Woe to those who rise early in the morning
to run after their drinks,
who stay up late at night
till they are inflamed with wine.
HE IS MY SONG EVEN IN THE FACE OF TROUBLE
But I will sing of your strength,
in the morning I will sing of your love;
for you are my fortress,
my refuge in times of trouble.
MORNING HAS BEEN COMMANDED TO BRING US JOY
For his anger lasts only a moment,
but his favor lasts a lifetime;
weeping may stay for the night,
but rejoicing comes in the morning.
Satisfy us in the morning with your unfailing love,
that we may sing for joy and be glad all our days.
