This morning was one of those mornings that just got away from me. I had difficulty going to sleep last night which led to difficulty getting up this morning on time. I got most of my quiet time in, but had a breakfast meeting with some brothers that I had to get to.
So what do we do when these types of things occur? We persevere. We get up tomorrow morning and go again. We make some time today to make up for the time because we really need this time with God. If you work an 8 hour day, use your lunch hour or take time when you get home, but do it. We need fresh manna each day. We probably need it more when our day starts off poorly.
Andrew Murray “The likeness to Christ consists chiefly in two things–the likeness of His death and resurrection, (Rom. 6:5). The death of Christ was the consummation of His humility and obedience, the entire giving up of His life to God. In Him, we are dead to sin. As we sink down in humility and dependence and entire surrender to God, the power of His death works in us, and we are made conformable in His death. And so we know Him in the power of His resurrection, in the victory over sin, and all the joy and power of the risen life. Therefore every morning, “present yourselves unto God as those that are alive from the dead.” He will maintain the life He gave, and bestow the grace to live as risen ones.”
Pray: Holy Lord, please help us present ourselves unto You each day, as those that are alive from the dead. Help us to persevere when we are interrupted.
