• “Jesus came!—-And came for me. Simple words! and yet expressing Depths of holy mystery, Depths of wondrous love and blessing. Holy Spirit , make me see All His coming means for me, ‘ Take the things of Christ , I pray, Show them to my heart today.” – Francis R. Havergal

Success the Night Before by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 10/21/11

“Okay. I’m really going to do it this week. I’m going to wake up early and pray and read the Bible. (Sigh) I say this every week, and it never seems to work.”

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: I’ve learned something important about having a devotional time early in the morning. Success starts the night before. Our choices in the evening will affect our time with God the next morning.

One reason my dad consistently spent his first hour with the Lord each day is that he was disciplined about getting to bed on time the night before. We kids have laughed thinking about the times he said to guests, “Good night, y’all! Be sure to lock the door and turn out the lights when you leave.”

He didn’t communicate a rigid spirit. He just didn’t want to miss the most important meeting of his day.

Psalm 143:8 says: “Cause me to hear Your lovingkindness in the morning.” Tomorrow morning you have a chance to spend uninterrupted time with God Himself. How can you prepare tonight?

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy Leigh DeMoss.
