“Let me hear of your unfailing love each morning, for I am trusting you. Show me where to walk, for I give myself to you.” Psalms‬ ‭143:8‬

If you are like me, one of the first things you enjoy in the morning is a good cup of coffee. Nothing seems to get me going better than to be able to sit down to a good warm cuppa Java! It tends to start my day out right.

There’s one thing that is even more important than coffee to get my day started right. The Psalmist writes “let me hear of your unfailing love each morning.” Each morning he reminds himself of the fact that God‘s love for him is brand new.

Remember when you first fell in love? The excitement that was within you? The joy you felt? The way that new love made everything seem better. It may have seemed like your troubles all disappeared because of that new love. That’s the kind of love God has for you. Every single morning you can wake up and realize his love is fresh and exciting and powerful.

But the Psalms tells us something else about God’s great love. God‘s great love guides us each step of the way. Sometimes our emotions can get the best of us. Sometimes the situations that we come across during the day can discourage us or disappoint us or make us fearful. But God‘s love guides through those times and reminds us of his great power and mercy.

Coffee can be good to get our day started out right, but more importantly, reminding ourselves of Jesus love, and asking him to help us in the decisions of our day, are the most important way to get a fresh start every day.

It may be hard to realize sometimes, but the creator God of the universe loves us and is intimately interested in each and everything we do. Before your feet hit the floor in the morning, before you reach for that first cup of coffee, remind yourself that God loves you today. Ask him to guide your steps. Thank him for in advance for his guidance, because he wants to see you succeed!
