My tongue will speak of Your righteousness and of Your praises all day long. (Psalm 35:28 NIV 1984)
Usually when I wake up, my mind is immediately filled with the tasks of the day. This morning as I woke, my mind was immediately transfixed on the words of Christ from Matthew 5:6, “Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled:” the implications of this verse for my own life, my witness, and the life of the Church. I did not plan to meditate on this passage this morning: it was a special blessing from the Lord, which arrested my heart, for which I give him glory.
