These morning scriptures can help start your day off right.
The way we start our day can set the mood for the rest of our day. This is why spending time with God in the morning is absolutely vital.
One of the ways we can do this is by reminding us of God’s truth as we begin our day.
If you don’t know where to begin, these Bible verses for the morning are a great place to start.
There are different ways that you can incorporate these morning scriptures into your daily life.
You can start by reading them, and noting it down on a notebook, sticky note or somewhere where you can see it throughout the day.
A term for this is also meditating on the word.
This means that you don’t simply read the verse, then forget about it as soon as you close your Bible.
Instead, you think about it in your mind.
Some people use the word “chew on it.” Think of what it means, how it applies to you, what it is teaching you about God or yourself.
When you start your day with God’s word, you set yourself up for a day of communing with Him.
But You also show Him that He is a priority to You, not just a checkmark on your to-do list.
Instead, He is the one empowering you to do all that you need to do and be for the day ahead.
Try these as your morning affirmations to help you have a great day.
