JULY 30, 2013 – BEFORE THE DAWN – Have you ever given much thought as to what Jesus did before the dawn; the dawn of a new day? I do, all of the time. I personally believe that Jesus was an early riser. This morning around five I was sitting in my backyard on my swing and the wind was very boisterous, as the limbs on the trees were swaying back and forth. The clouds were moving very quickly in the sky and there was a half moon shining brightly. I was thinking about the things that Jesus probably did in the early morning hours. I know that He spent a lot of time alone with His father and I know that He spent a lot of time outside. It’s amazing what takes place when you are outside, all alone, before the dawn, and in the presence of Almighty God! Awaken – Before The Dawn – In Your Life! Psalms 108:1-5 O God, my heart is steadfast; I will sing and give praise, even with my glory. Awake, lute and harp! I will awaken the dawn. I will praise You, O LORD, among the peoples, and I will sing praises to You among the nations. For Your mercy is great above the heavens, and Your truth reaches to the clouds. Be exalted, O God, above the heavens, and Your glory above all the earth. (NKJ)
