Good morning, Bible Verses to Start the Day

By nature, I am a morning person. As I type this it is 4 am and I’ve been up since a little before 3 am. There was no alarm clock, no moaning or groaning. I just work up, felt awake and rejuvenated, heard the coffee pot timer go off, and decided to start my day a little bit early. It took no extra work or consequences.

So truthfully, it’s easy for me to start my day with God and read morning Bible verses. I naturally just gravitate in that direction. Not everyone is the same way. Even someone that says they are a morning person is usually not up at 4 am.

Regardless of if you are a morning person or not, starting your day off with morning Bible verses is one of the most important things you can do for your day. What does that look like though? We need the Word of God to start our day. Inspirational morning Bible verses help to direct and turn our affections to Jesus for the rest of the day.

What I am not saying here, is that you must start your day with an hour of prayer and morning scripture. I’m not even saying you need to spend 10 minutes with your nose in the Bible.

Meeting God with morning scriptures can be as simple as directing your thoughts, affections, and emotions toward him. It’s as simple as acknowledging Him as Lord of your life, giving thanks, and committing your day and decisions to the Glory of God alone.

For some that may be a quick prayer, for others, it may be sitting down with a cup of coffee and digging into scripture for an extended period of time.

Beginning your day with Jesus means that you are inviting him into your upcoming day. All the moments, tensions, and joys have already been given to him. Tackling your day on your own is usually an invitation for exhaustion and failure. Why not invite the God of the universe to help, protect, and guide you throughout your day?

Submit to him.
