Morning is the best time for getting to know God. This principle was deeply impressed upon the children of Israel by His daily gift of manna. The angel food cake rained down from heaven early in the morning, six days week, for 40 years. If one waited too long to gather it, the manna would evaporate in the heat of the desert sun. "And they gathered it every morning, every man according to his eating: and when the sun waxed hot, it melted" (Ex. 16:21).
Likewise, if we wait too long for our spiritual devotions, the cares and pressures of the day will get our attention before the Lord does. The busier we are and the more we have to do, the more we need to take time to pray. Let's not allow the manna to melt.
