FACING THE DAY WITH JESUS

"Be ready in the morning, and then come up... Present yourself to Me there on top of the mountain.  No one is to come with you."  (Exodus 34:2-3)

The morning is a critically important time of day.  You must never face the day until you have faced God, not look into the face of others until you have looked into His.  You cannot expect to be victorious, if you begin your day in your own strength alone. Begin the work of every day after having been influenced by a few reflective, quiet moments between your heart and God.  Do not meet with others, even the members of your own family, until you have first met with the great Guest and honored Companion of your life -- Jesus Christ. Meet with Him alone and regularly, having His Book of counsel open before you.  Then face the ordinary, and the unique, responsibilities of each day with the renewed influence and control of His character over all your actions.

-- L.B. Cowman in Streams in the Desert
