.... an orthodox (true and correct when contrasted with Liberal theology) Protestant forum whose members espouse the Apostolic doctrines in the Biblical theologies set forth by Augustine, Martin Luther, Ulrich Zwingli, John Calvin and John Knox etc. We do not "argue" with nor do we solicit the membership of people who espouse secular or cultic ideologies. We believe that our conversations are to be faith building and posts that advance heretical or apostate thinking will be immediately deleted and the poster permanently banned from the forum. This is a Christian community for people to explore the traditional theologies of Classical Protestantism. Those who would challenge the peace and harmony that we enjoy here as fellow believers are directed to another website.

In the Morning, Eagerly

Recommended Posts

"In the morning, O LORD, You will hear my voice; In the morning I will order my prayer to You and eagerly watch," (Psalm 5:3).



For David, prayer was not a ritual. It was a breathed-out passion... a heart-driven delight. He eagerly watched... from enjoyment, not drudgery. His eagerness stemmed from confidence that God would meet with him, and would communicate with him. Do we have the same eagerness...the same confidence..?


Why the morning...? To keep a schedule? To check off requests in a notebook? No, it was because it was the earliest he could seek fellowship with his heart's Love. Because the night hours are often fraught with fears, unbidden dreams, and spiritual disturbances. The morning meeting with the living God restored David's perspective, calmed his spirit, cleansed his conscience. In the simple silence and solitude he became, indeed, a man after God's own heart.

So for us, as well. As we are meditating upon the memorized Word, the Holy Spirit takes our thoughts from ourselves, shifts them to where they belong-- upon the One Who deserves our every thought and eager focus. Having our undivided attention, God reveals both Himself and His truth. He speaks peace to our inner storms, assurance to our frettings, and courage to face the unseen day.
