Wisdom's Corner
In the Morning

Most young children wake up early in the morning. Their parents may still be in bed asleep. The child will jump out of bed and go to their parent's bedroom. They may climb up in bed with their parents. Then they start telling their parents all about what they dreamed. Or they tell them what they want to do that day. Or they start asking their parents all kind of questions.

The parents always listen. They usually let the child crawl up next to them and allow the child to tell them all about whatever it is they are talking about. The parents probably put their arms around the child and tell them they love them.

This may be one of the best times of the day. The parent and the child have these minutes all to themselves.

You can have this kind of relationship every day with God. You can get up early and pray to God. You can tell Him all about your concerns. You can tell Him you love Him. You can ask for His help. You can thank Him for all that He has given you.

And God will hear every word. God is never asleep, though. He will always be there to listen to what you have to say. And He will tell you that He loves you. You can know that by reading His word, the Bible. In the Bible, He says over and over again that He loves us. And He wants us to listen to what He says in the Bible.

If we love Him and obey Him, He will always be there for us in the early morning. Psalm 5:1-3, "Give ear to my words, O Lord, consider my meditation. Hearken unto the voice of my cry, my King, and my God: for unto thee will I pray. My voice shalt thou hear in the morning, O Lord; in the morning will I direct my prayer unto thee, and will look up."

Until next time, keep reading and studying your Bible. Get the wisdom that God can give you. And have the peace of knowing that God will always hear your prayer.
