Seek God Early

And in the morning, long before daylight, He got up and went out to a deserted place, and there He prayed.  Mark 1:35.

When Jesus told us to abide in Him and in His Word, He used the Greek word meno, which is translated in Strong's concordance as "continue, dwell, endure, be present, remain, stand, tarry."  We are to spend time with God--continually.  When we do, we get in the flow of His plan for our day.

We are not told to wish for everything to work together; we are told to seek God for a fresh word each day.  If we seek Him early in the day, we will have "a word in due season" to share with others (see Proverbs 15:23).  We can succeed at what God calls us to do, if we listen for His instructions.  He has said, "If you seek Me early and diligently, you will find me" (see Proverbs 8:17).
The above is from Joyce Meyer's Starting Your Day Right.

Words that stand out to me in this devotional are:
remain, continually, flow, seek, share, listen.

What words stand out for you?  Ask God to show you what you are to glean from this devotional and then read it again.

You might be amazed at what the second reading reveals to you.
