Rising Early

Do not get up early to do evil. Do not get up early to drink. Jesus’ example was to get up early for devotions. The righteous receive new strength every morning. A wife gets up early every morning to provide breakfast for her family.


Early Rising

Do not get up early to do evil

Micah 2:1   Woe to Evildoers

1 Woe to those who devise iniquity,

And work out evil on their beds!

At morning light they practice it,

Because it is in the power of their hand.


Do not get up early to drink

Isaiah 5:11    11 Woe to those who rise early in the morning,

That they may follow intoxicating drink;

Who continue until night, till wine inflames them!


Jesus example, early devotions

Mark 1:35    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.


New strength every morning

Isaiah 33:2    2 O Lord, be gracious to us;

We have waited for You.

Be their arm every morning,

Our salvation also in the time of trouble.


Prayer in the morning

Psalm 5:3    3 My voice You shall hear in the morning, O Lord; In the morning I will direct it to You, And I will look up.


Psalm 119:147    147 I rise before the dawning of the morning, And cry for help; I hope in Your word.


Wife gets up before dawn

Proverbs 31:15    15 She also rises while it is yet night, And provides food for her household, And a portion for her maidservants.


Late Rising

A little extra sleep leads to poverty

Proverbs 24:33, 34    33 A little sleep, a little slumber,

A little folding of the hands to rest;

34 So shall your poverty come like a prowler,

And your need like an armed man.


Lazybones how long will you sleep

Proverbs 6:9    9 How long will you slumber, O sluggard? When will you rise from your sleep?


Son who sleeps during harvest is shameful

Proverbs 10:5    5 He who gathers in summer is a wise son; He who sleeps in harvest is a son who causes shame.


A little extra sleep leads to poverty. Lazybones how long will you sleep?  If you love sleep you will end up in poverty. A son who sleeps during harvest time is shameful.


Where there is no sin, there is no wrath, but there will always be faith, hope, love and holiness. Therefore those who have faith, hope, love and holiness will always be found in Jesus’ Book of Life.

God is testing us every day and has given us the right to make our own choices. Do you know which ones are the right choices in Gods mind?

Fear God, love God, honor God, and trust God with all your heart, mind and soul and you will receive and experience the joy of the promises of God’s blessings in His time.
