Motivate Me Monday ~ Seek Him Daily

It's Motivate Me Monday at Like a Warm Cup of Coffee. I am a member of the 5:16 AM Gals, though my habits don't show it lately. And that is why I need some motivation!

When I first started getting up early (5 AM! - amazing for me), I was successful only because I sought the Lord's help with it each morning and night. I was happy and amazed that I could get up so early and dedicate some quiet time to the Lord!

Now I have been going to bed too late and not getting up early at all. Why? I thought the Lord already took care of that for me. I forgot (being the sinner that I am!) that the Lord wants me to continually seek Him and ask for His help. I don't get to ask God once for help and sit back and ignore Him the rest of the time, assuming that He will continue blessing me while I try to take care of things on my own. Yes, I can trust in and wait on the Lord, but that doesn't mean that I should stop seeking Him.

In Psalm 105:4, it says, "Seek the Lord and His strength; Seek His face evermore!"

And in Isaiah 58:2, it says, "Yet they seek Me daily, And delight to know My ways, As a nation that did righteousness, And did not forsake the ordinance of their God. They ask of Me the ordinances of justice; They take delight in approaching God."

In my devotional Streams in the Desert, George Mueller said, "Be assured, if you walk with Him, look to Him, and expect help from Him, He will never fail you."

I know that I will succeed again in getting up early and devoting that quiet time to the Lord - because I will seek Him and ask His help. I trust that the Lord will help me to learn to do it daily.


  1. Oh I love the mornings! His mercies are new EVERY morning. Isn't it great?!
    Have you been entering giveaways today? I've entered a few.
    Hugs my friend.

  2. OH I also wanted to say that I thought it was funny that I was your top commentator and you were mine LOL. What does that say about us? Ha! Ha!
    Love you my friend.

  3. Hey Lisa! Thanks for this wonderful reminder. You are right. We need to continually ask for His help. I don't always remember is the problem. Thanks for the reminder!

  4. That was very nice, Lisa. I think we all need a "wake up" call once in a while.

  5. Oh Lisa, what an encouraging post! I love that verse by the way, psalm 105:3 - YES!
