“O Lord, in the morning you hear my voice;
in the morning I prepare a sacrifice for you and watch.”
—Psalm 5:3 ESV
I love this verse. It’s the heart of every Daily Thought here at Further Up.
In the morning we connect with God. We pray. We worship.
And then during the day we “watch”. We are attentive to God’s presence which is close at hand. We slow down to hear his “low whisper” (1 Kings 19:12).
That’s my goal with the Daily Thoughts: to provide you with a simple idea and prayer that helps you invite God into every moment of your day.
So take some time to watch today. To wait on the Lord. To see him. To hear his voice.
Prepare the way for him with your worship and your prayers, inviting him into every space you inhabit.
And wait for him to come.
And here’s the funny thing: in watching and waiting we discover that he was there all along. We just didn’t notice him.
Here is a short prayer to help you invite God into every moment of your day:
Exhale: Help me see you today.
