They were also to stand every morning to thank and praise the Lord. They were to do the same in the evening 1 Chronicles 23:30
It is common for most people to have some daily routines that they go through. For many, it will be routines that are done or required at their workplace. Others like the routine in their home each day.
Having a routine can ensure that certain things will get done in a timely manner. It can also help a person to remember to do what needs to be done each day.
Part of the Levites responsibilities as priests was to stand every morning and evening to thank and praise the Lord.
Being driven by routines can help keep a person focused correctly. The world is constantly throwing things at people to see and do. Distractions occur on a regular basis attempting to pull people away from what is really important.
In the life of a believer, God should always be his first focus. Taking time to recognize God and what He is doing is of the highest priority for the believer.
Stopping for a moment at the beginning of the day to thank and praise the Lord for giving one another day causes one to start with the right focus upon God and what He is doing. It will give one strength and courage for the challenges of the day.
Later, one must stop and take time to thank and praise the Lord for what He had done during that day. It can bring the needed peace for a night of rest regardless of what went right or wrong throughout that day.
Believers can recognize how great God is them and how many blessings they have been given when stopping to thank and praise God twice or more each day.
You most likely have some routines in your life that you like to or must follow on a regular basis. Make sure that part of those routines is taking time to stop and thank God for what He has done, what He is doing and what He will do.
Open your eyes to the work the Lord is doing in your life. You cannot count all the blessings that God has given you each day and night. Do not take those blessings for granted but thank and praise God each morning and evening and throughout the day.
Today I pray that you will know Jesus as your Lord and Savior; that you will see what God has done in your life; that you will continually thank God for what He is doing; that you will give God praise day and night; and that you will be grateful for all the blessings and strength God has given you.
