This Is The Day

It is important for the believer to start their day with God through His Word and prayer.  Jesus often would go off by Himself early in the morning and spend time with His Father during His earthly ministry.  E.M. Bounds in, The Complete Works of E. M. Bounds: Power Through Prayer, Prayer and Praying Men, The Essentials of Prayer, The Necessity of Prayer, The Possibilities ... Purpose in Prayer, The Weapon of Prayer wrote, "If God is not first in our thoughts and efforts in the morning, he will be in the last place the remainder of the day."

I try (not always succeeding) to begin each day with a "quiet time" with God:  reading, studying, meditating on His Word and in prayer.  In fact, I write most of the guided meditation scripts early in the morning after I have had this personal "quiet time".

Many of you love to begin your day meditating on God’s Word.  Proof of this is that consistently one of our most popular Christian meditations is “New Every Morning”.   "New Every Morning" was the 4th meditation Mindful Worship produced 7 years ago.  We thought it was time to do another one.  This meditation is on a passage which may be very familiar to you.  In some churches I have attended we sang this verse as a hymn.

Our prayer is meditating on Psalm 118:24 will help you begin your day looking forward to what God has for you today and help you approach it with a heart of gratitude and joy.

Scriptures: Psalm 118:24

    I thoroughly enjoy beginning my day with this meditation. It helps put things in perspective, quiets my soul, and inspires me to stop during the day for times of more meditations and spending time with God. Thank you for true Christian meditations in God’s Word. Joan
