George Muller wrote in his autobiography that after serving Christ more than 40 years, “I saw more than ever that the first great and primary business to which I ought to attend every day was to have my soul happy in the Lord.”
Our effectiveness in ministry — and life — is related to this principle. Starting the day right is the best way to ensure that you spend it right, and you end it right.
“Let the morning bring me word of your unfailing love.” (Psalm 143:8)
Before you check the news or check your email — even before the coffee is ready — take some time to wait silently for “word of God’s unfailing love.”
This day is the most important day of your life so far. Making the most of it begins with seeing to it that your soul is happy in him.
