Take a morning walk with God

Start your day with God. Start your day on the right foot. Start your day with a walk. Start your day going on a walk with God. Let it be just you and God. Close your eyes. Think about the Lord and start your walk. Give in to God. Give Him the first minutes of your day and He will give you hours of peace and joy. That morning walk has been a tradition for me. It is part of my life and it is something that I never skip. I have skipped breakfast on very few occasions but I have not skipped my walk with God. Those amazing morning walks are very special to me and to God. You see, God wants you and me to know that we matter to Him and He loves spending time with us. He loves our company and He loves hearing our voices. We are all very special to Him. He walks with us all day but we should make time to walk with Him every day. First thing in the morning is a great idea because it sets the tone for the day. The morning walk paves the way for a day of blessings and a day of awareness of God.

I wake up very early because I want to have enough time to go on my spiritual walk with the Lord. The walk starts when I thank Him for being God and for being with me. I also thank Him for the Holy Spirit in my life and for His love that is poured into my day all day long. I start the walk with a few words and He leads me down the path of fellowship with Him. I initiate it and He does the rest. The morning is one of my favorite times of the day because it is my Jesus time with no distractions and no interruptions. I talk to God as I walk by His side. It sounds unreal but it is a very powerful and authentic experience. I walk with God and I listen to Him. Oftentimes I go into praise mode before I listen. This walk is for the Lord. This walk is meant to celebrate the Lord. He is my guide and He is my host. He knows where I am going and He helps me get there. I walk every morning without leaving my bed. I walk with God through prayer, praise, worship, active listening, gratitude and thanksgiving.

As you can see, my morning walk is not a physical walk but it is a walk in the realm of the spirit. I give my spirit a chance to express itself by communicating with God and by expressing what the Lord wants me to say. Walking with God is going at a peaceful pace and respecting the One who is in charge. It is slowing down so we can catch up with God. It is walking in love, with love and for love. It is walking to a place where the Spirit of the Lord is in full control and our minds are focused on Jesus. I can’t walk out of my house before I have walked with God. He knows what steps I should take at that moment and throughout the day. He gives me a roadmap for the day. A map that my spirit understands. A map that has all the stops I will need to visit that day. Some stops are hope, faith, peace, self-control, joy, kindness, gratitude, goodness, truth, long-suffering and others. I don’t have to go into the day scared because God holds the day in the palm of His hand and He shows me on our walks that everything is going to be alright. There are times when I wake up to the Spirit whispering, “Do not worry and do not be afraid.”

Every word that the Lord says is to edify us, encourage us and help us. His morning words are beautiful petals from flowers of hope that never wilt. When you walk with God in the morning, you are made aware of His beauty displayed in His words and in His presence. He is very present on that walk so let Him talk. Listen. Enjoy His love. Enjoy His voice. Walk in peace. Walk in faith. Embrace His caring voice and carry His peace and His joy with you during the day. I pray that you enjoy spiritual walks with God every morning and that you keep finding yourself in places of hope all day long. The Lord is with you and He will never leave you. Walk with God every day! May God bless you and protect you and remember that He will always love you!
