You do well to take time with Me first thing in the morning, for you are powerless without the strength you draw from Me, you are foolish without the wisdom you learn from Me, and you have no love to share with others unless you first get it from Me. Without Me, you would continue on in your own little world and be limited to your own meager resources. Your human strength would run out before the day had scarcely started, your own thoughts would get in the way, and you wouldn’t go far on yesterday’s store of love. But when you come to Me, I open the boundless world of My Spirit to you. I am wisdom, I am strength, and I am love.
Haven’t I said in My Word that you must labor in order to enter into My rest? It seems easier to carry on in your own energy than to labor to enter into the realm of My Spirit where I would carry you along, but that’s not so; you really make it harder for yourself, because you make it harder for Me to help you. So take a little time each morning to hear from Me and enter into My rest. Remind yourself that until you have heard from Me, you don’t have the strength or wisdom or love you need to face another day.
Practice makes perfect. As you practice reaching out to Me, it will become easier. Keep taking this time with Me each morning, and I will always be here for you.
