When Brian started talking about getting married, I told him he needed to know two things about me: 1) I was expensive and 2) I don’t do mornings. He found out both were true. Once Brian is up and moving around he’s awake and ready to go. Me – not so much. I don’t like a lot of talking. I need to ease into my day. On the mornings he wants to carry on a full conversation before I’ve had times to get fully awake and ready to face the day, I’m silently begging him to stop talking and wish his words would just go away. In fact, for the first hour or two, the whole world could pass away if I could just hit the snooze another time (or two) and pull the covers over my head.
Jesus said in Matthew 24:35 that one day heaven and earth will all come to and end, but there will never be an end to His Word. The promises of God’s Word are reliable, true, and trustworthy. They are more dependable than the ground we walk on and the air we breathe. They are more sure than even the existence of the universe. At the time Jesus said these words, He knew that one day the disciples would put their very lives on the line for Him and He wanted them to know that they could trust that every Word was true. Today, we still have the assurance and are able to depend on the teachings and promises found in the Bible from Genesis to Revelations.
As for Brian, I’ve learned to get up before Him and spend my first hour of the day in God’s Word so that by the time Brian wakes up, I’m ready face the day with him. On the rare days that he is awake first, he has learned over the years to give me that time to catch up to him. Thankfully, we never have to wait for God to be ready to talk and share the day with us. He’s always there and the Words He has for us is always ready for every moment.
