Daniel 6:10 Daniel always prayed to God three times every day. Three times every day, he bowed down on his knees to pray and praise God. Even though Daniel heard about the new law, he still went to his house to pray. He went up to the upper room of his house and opened the windows that faced toward Jerusalem. Then Daniel bowed down on his knees and prayed just as he always had done.

It seems to me that there are two ways we can start our day: we can start it well, or we can start it badly. They’re really the choices. And over the years, I think the most powerful force for change in my life has been starting my days … well.

This morning I did something crazy – I was up at 3:00am again. Actually, it’s something I do almost every morning. My mother tells me I’ve been like that since I was old enough not to be in a cot anymore – pity my poor parents.

But I just love the early mornings … always have, and I suspect I always will. So people ask me, “What do you do at that hour? What can possibly be better than bed that early in the morning?” Fair question. Well, I always start my day with a cup of coffee and a long chat with a good friend.

What? You mean someone else is up at that hour?

Sure. Everyone else is asleep, but God’s awake. So we talk. I tell Him what’s on my heart, He tells me what’s on His. This morning I knew I couldn’t fit everything into my day, so I told Him about it. At around 7:30, just by “coincidence”, an e-mail arrived – one of my appointments had just cancelled.

And you know, ever since we’ve started our chat together every morning, my life is full of coincidences like that.

That’s God’s Word. Fresh … for you … today.
