Don't Forget To Set Your SPIRITUAL Alarm Clock!

This morning I am up early. It's Saturday, so why I am not sleeping in? Could it be that "body clock" thing? No, not really; even though I've been an early riser for years. At one time (earlier in my life) I was a radio announcer. You know, a Disc Jockey. Most of my shifts were very, very early shifts. In order to start my shift at 5:00 am my feet would have to hit the floor at 3:45 am!

Even though I'm up very early this morning; and even though my "body clock" is set to wake me early every single day of my life, it's not the body clock thing. It is something much greater than that.

The truth is, it's my "spiritual clock" thing! Yes, I have a spiritual alarm clock Holy Spirit chimes for me...every single morning of my life. With Him it's always a very early chime. That's just the way it has been for me. No matter what time I retire at night, my spiritual Holy Spirit alarm clock chimes at the same time each morning.....early! But I wouldn't have it any other way! What a joy and a blessing it is to rise early every morning to meet the King of the universe. It seems He has personally dedicated this time to just Himself and me.

What I've discovered through the years is that He is more excited about our time together than I am. He is always waiting for me when I awaken...every single morning! On the mornings I struggle a bit with my physical senses, He patiently loves me into complete consciousness. Wow!

I made it a priority years ago to rise early and seek my King. As a result, my spiritual Holy Spirit alarm clock has been set for "early". Like God longed to walk with Adam and Eve in the cool of the day in the Garden of Eden, I have no doubt He looks forward each morning to our communion together. One of my favorite verses of the Bible is Psalm 5:3, "In the morning, O Lord, You will hear my voice; In the morning I will order my prayer to You and eagerly watch."

I am so grateful for my Holy Spirit alarm clock! You have one too. Even though He chimes through it, you must set the time. For me, it is early. It may be different for you. The key however, is that we set the alarm by consistently meeting with Him daily. I promise He will be waiting for you when the alarm goes off!
