S. O. A. P.
Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional!
In the morning, Lord, you hear my voice; in the morning I lay my requests before you and wait expectantly.
In this verse, we once again see King David in a “shut in alone time” with the LORD, early in the AM. He actually affirmed that God hears him in the AM, and that’s when he lays all of his petitions before the Lord.
I don’t have time in this short Devo to give you all of the scriptural background for what I’m going to say. I do believe, however, that it is safe to say that David had a daily AM time with God. As one reads scripture, those were quiet times of conversation and petition. Of course David said God heard his prayer in those sessions, and that he would patiently wait for the Lord’s response. That was in the AM. When King David talks about the night, it usually has to do with a tough time sleeping, crazy dreams, and what I’ve referred to before as David’s “Night Terrors.” I must say that my life and devotions before the Lord are not unlike King David. Everything makes more sense in the AM. I know God hears me and I petition Him there. But then comes the night! Oh my … The NIGHT! Maybe you have experienced what I’ve experienced too. It’s because of my AM solitude with Jesus that I’m able to sleep through the night! And for that I have to say … “There’s Just Something About The AM!”
It’s AM time again. I have no hope outside of our AM sessions together. It is in these times I’m at peace because of You. And it’s in these that I know You hear my prayer and I gladly wait for Your reply. Amen
