Ebenezer Erskine was a Scottish minister in the 1700s who faced some serious challenges in his ministry. But he knew how to draw encouragement from the Lord each morning. In his journal for September 20, 1721, he wrote: “This morning, a little after I awakened, I began to turn my thoughts toward the Lord Jesus; and the Lord encouraged me…by a sweet gale of his Spirit; for my meditation of him was sweet. I could say that his love is better than wine; yea, that his loving kindness is better than life…. My heart did burn within me, while I thought of him who is Immanuel, and whose name is Wonderful; and what more can I say?”
We live in a chaotic world, and without the daily encouragement of Christ what would we do? That’s why it’s vital to start the day with Him. Even before rising from bed, we can say, “Good morning, Lord!” And on a chair or table nearby, we can keep an open Bible.
We’re encouraged by the Lord as we walk with Him, and our walk with Him is a pathway of perpetual praise.
O that I may ascend in a glow of love to him, to be with him for ever.
