Psalm 116:1 I love the Lord, because he hath heard my voice and my supplications. 2 Because he hath inclined his ear unto me, therefore will I call upon him as long as I live. Psalm 116:13 I will take the cup of salvation, and call upon the name of the Lord.
Here is an awesome morning prayer time animation video.
Morning time is an awesome time to connect with God in the Bible and prayer.
Just before the day gets started, take time in the morning to connect with God, the source of our life and our strength. He is the one to strengthen us through the whole day.
Consider these encouraging Bible verses on prayer in the morning.
Psalms 55:17—“Evening and morning and at noon I will pray, and cry aloud, and He shall hear my voice.”
Mark 1:35—“Now in the morning, having risen a long while before daylight, He went out and departed to a solitary place; and there He prayed.”
Jesus really liked the morning time for prayer and Bible reading.
Script, text and voice by me, animation and music by others.
Jesus has feelings and emotions towards His people. He has a loving care for His children. In John 3 …God so loved…, but in John 1: his own received him not.
Luke 13:34 O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, which killest the prophets, and stonest them that are sent unto thee; how often would I have gathered thy children together, as a hen doth gather her brood under her wings, and ye would not! It is sad that most of the nation of Israel at the time of Christ did not respond to Him as the Son of God. He loved them, yet He was unloved by many.
John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. John 1:11 He came unto his own, and his own received him not.
A few of us humans encounter bumps and troubles in life. I think only about 99.9999 percent of humans experience bumps. Consider the Apostle Paul who encountered a few bumps in his life and ministry; look at Second Corinthians chapter one and chapter four.
2 Cor 1:8 For we would not, brethren, have you ignorant of our trouble which came to us in Asia, that we were pressed out of measure, above strength, insomuch that we despaired even of life: 9 But we had the sentence of death in ourselves, that we should not trust in ourselves, but in God which raiseth the dead:
2 Cor 4:7 But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us. 8 We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; 9 Persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed;
Notice the two phrases in blue above. Paul trusted in God, not himself. Paul trusted in God’s power, not his strength.
God is eternal, and powerful, He cannot be kept or contained in a box.
Psalms 106:48 Blessed be the Lord God of Israel from everlasting to everlasting: and let all the people say, Amen. Praise ye the Lord.
Psalms 103:17 But the mercy of the Lord is from everlasting to everlasting upon them that fear him, and his righteousness unto children’s children;
Only man is dumb enough to try to put God in a box.
Besides the stories in Matthew and Luke, we have the Isaiah Bible verse Isaiah 9:6
For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given:
and the government shall be upon his shoulder:
and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God,
The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.
The encouraging overcoming morning verses for today are from Revelation 12. Notice the strong overcoming words like: salvation, strength, kingdom, power, cast down, overcome, and rule.
Revelation 12:12 I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night. 11 And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.
Revelation 12:5 And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto God, and to his throne.
God always wins and the Bible story has an encouraging happy ending. So God in His word, the Bible, the scriptures looks forward to the day where every evil thing is subdued on the earth. At that future time the earth is returned to the original creator and owner, which is God.
Revelation 11:15 And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever. 16 And the four and twenty elders, which sat before God on their seats, fell upon their faces, and worshipped God, 17 Saying, We give thee thanks, O Lord God Almighty, which art, and wast, and art to come; because thou hast taken to thee thy great power, and hast reigned. This is a wonderful encouraging Bible verse.
