This morning I was reading The Morning Watch Guide, by Newman Sze and felt like sharing some of it with you. I always tell girls to practice the morning watch and so this is just a reminder to us all about it's importance:
What we mean by ‘morning watch’ refers to the tranquil period of time when we Christians rise in the morning to have fellowship with and accept spiritual food from God. Any experienced person will point out to us that this is exactly the secret and the foundation of a successful spiritual life. Many a Christian nowadays is leading an unsuccessful or weak spiritual life, and do not feel that they can actually do much better. They are still very poor after many years in the hands of God. Searching carefully for the reasons, we may find out that their failure results not from something great, but from the fact that they do not deal with their morning watch properly. The improper treatment of the morning watch is one of the fatal deficiencies of the Church and the individual Christian.
