As this is stated in the Psalms it gives understanding to what is to come first in our lives. What is it to awake early? Does it only mean to wake up early in the morning or does it mean to awake early to an awareness that puts the presence of God first. Awaking early relates to putting priority on the things that matter in any given moment. Awaking early relates to putting attention to first things first. First things that are received through an open and thankful heart and an alert mind to the qualities and characteristics of the presence of God in any given moment. When we are oriented to awake early in such a way we find we are filled with the inspiration and wisdom necessary for our living to be true and effective for increasing the dominion of God on earth.
Singing praise to our God while we have our being says a lot. How may we do this in our living? For one acknowledging the presence of God made evidence in all of nature. If you really acknowledge the majesty of God in all the living world it floods us with a sense of awe and invigoration. Why not sing praise to our God in all the living world that we see? Our life and joy depends on it.
What words to live by! To identify ourselves as a minister of the Lord as a flaming fire. A flaming fire given to us as a gift for those willing to minister is a gift indeed. Let us use this fire to increase the influence of the Lord on earth.
