If God gives us new mercies every morning, should we not go to Him early to receive and thank Him for it? 

Scenario 1: You have an early morning rush for some reason, you’re unable to have any quiet time with the Lord before setting out for your day so you decide that quiet time will be in the evening. 

During your day, different things happen and by the time you are having quiet time in the evening, you see answers in His Word to dilemmas you faced during the day or you see a warning about a sin you already fell into during the day. 

Friend, seek God early in the morning. Begin your day with Him. Don’t give Him the residue of your energy at night. Give Him your morning best. Make the sacrifice to get up, earlier than usual if necessary, to have communion with the Lover of your soul. 

If God gives us new mercies every morning, should we not go to Him early to receive and thank Him for it? 

Is it not a presumptuous assumption that we are guaranteed to wake up each day that we dare begin our day without acknowledging the Keeper of our souls and Giver of life? 

Scenario 2: You get to the end of your life, have made all your money, achieved all your vision board goals, have a large, thriving family and couldn’t possibly ask for more but you realise that these external things have left a void in your heart and your years of toiling and hustling were only vanity. 

The advice given to avoid this sad case is: 

“Remember now your Creator in the days of your youth, Before the difficult days come, And the years draw near when you say, ‘I have no pleasure in them’”

Ecclesiastes‬ ‭12:1‬

A hymn writer lamented this state thus: 

“Jesus, too late I thee have sought;

How can I love thee as I ought?”

He knew that even though it was better to find God late than to never find Him at all, he could never adequately love a God who demands that we love Him with all our heart, soul and strength when we are on our sickbeds counting down to our final breath. 

Friend, like the psalmist let our heart’s posture be, “O GOD, You are my God; Early will I seek You…” (Psalm 63:1)

Early in the morning and early in life. 

Would you go through life without knowing the One who created you? 

All in all, it is better to seek God late than to not seek Him at all. 

“The fool says in his heart: “There is no God…”

Psalms‬ ‭14:1‬

God is looking down from heaven to see if there is anyone who seeks Him, who is interested in Him (Psalms 14:2). 

Friend, let us not disappoint Him knowing that He is a Rewarder of them who diligently seek Him (Hebrews 11:6), the Gift being Himself and not any material, physical thing (Genesis 15:1; Jeremiah 29:13). 

Seek God early. Your early is now
