For the director of music. For flutes. A psalm of David.
1 Give ear to my words, O LORD, [earnest plea]
consider my sighing. [desperation for God]
2 Listen to my cry for help, [hear me in my helpless estate]
my King and my God, [recognize His authority]
for to You I pray. [know His power]
3 In the morning, O LORD, You hear my voice; [By Faith]
in the morning I lay my requests before You [Pray]
and wait in expectation. [Believing]
This last verse (3) is one that I have been waking to every morning for the last two months or more. I speak it out to the LORD after greeting Him with, "Good morning, LORD..." - all before getting out of bed!
It has become so special - not done in rote - or repetition - but completely spoken with a joy filled heart - eager to see - hope for - and expect what God will do that day! Sometimes I say to Him, "What WILL You do today? I can't WAIT to see!"
It's a great way to begin this new year!
