"Then Joshua rose early in the morning; and they set out from Acacia Grove and came to the Jordan, he and all the children of Israel, and lodged there before they crossed over" Joshua 3:1
"And Joshua rose early in the morning, and the priests took up the ark of the LORD." Joshua 6:12
"Then Joshua rose up early in the morning and mustered the people, and went up, he and the elders of Israel, before the people to Ai." Joshua 8:10i was driving today to work, and at the stop light, there was a lady who handle me a paper. She was protesting against a cell phone tower that was going to be erected close to our neighborhood. i am moving soon, hopefully, so i did not pay much attention about the tower. There was something that indeed called my attention. i normally consider myself as a morning person. i like o wake up in the morning and have pretty much all i have to do done by eleven am, or twelve the latest, but usually take my time so it ends close to one if i have a lot to do. Coming back to the topic, this lady was there at 6:45 the time i cross the intersection. i was amused at how she was doing this very early just for a cause that motivated her to do it, a simple cell phone tower. Point is, how many time do we wake up early for the cause of the Lord?
How many of us say that we love the Lord, but we don't even dedicate a morning moment to Him?
When was the last time i woke up early just to read my Bible and to praise Him? i mean praise Him as in give thanks because sometimes we as human rose early in the morning just to ask, like this lady ask for support, and people to fight against the building of the tower.
How little we praise God, for all He has done to us...
Once my Aunt told me, we were talking about people who judge, she said : The only Person who can really judge us, treat us like kings/queens.
God love us so much that HE SENT HIS SON for US, can we at least give HIM a little of our morning?
