“And he did evil, because he did not prepare his heart to seek the Lord.” (II Chronicles 12:14 NKJV)
It takes daily preparation to achieve an established heart. We must pray daily and renew our minds in God’s Word so we will be spiritually in tune with our Father’s will, Jesus’ will, and the Holy Spirit’s leading.
Many times, we become involved in sin because we have not spiritually prepared ourselves to meet the day. It is good to seek God early. Sometimes people find it very difficult to “seek God early.” Morning is often a time when our minds are fuzzy. It seems easier to do anything except spending some concentrated time with the Lord. But when we try to “meet the Lord,” He will, in turn, help us “meet the day.”
When God helps us to go out to “meet the day,” we’re prepared for good, not evil. We, thereby, have brought the supernatural into our day long before we have encountered anything else. Learn to see the Lord early.
Dear Heavenly Father,
Truly it is good to seek You early in the day; thank You that we have a way to prepare our hearts. In preparing our hearts, we are kept free from evil.
In Jesus’s Name,
