“WHY SHOULD I BE SLEEPING IN THE MORNING?”
Danielle has a pattern she would wake up very early. There are times that she would wake up when she hears us praying. This day, when Irewamiri saw the look on her face, she was prompted to ask whether Danielle would still love to sleep. Her response shook both of us, “Why should I be sleeping in the morning?”
First, it takes understanding and maturity to be aware that there is a time for everything. Once a man knows the importance of times and seasons, it makes the journey of his life more meaningful. He knows where to be at a time and what to do.
A “baby” is a time waster. He lacks awareness of times and seasons. He is sleeping when others are working. Such grows up to become a son which brings sorrow to the parents. As good as sleep is, there is a time when sleep should be taboo.
Know the importance of the season you’re in and the wise son you will be. But what a waste when an incompetent son sleeps through his day of opportunity!
Proverbs 10:5 TPT
Second, there is such a thing as taking the wings of the morning and there is such a thing as the womb of the morning.
If I take the wings of the morning…
Psalms 139:9 NKJV
Your people shall be volunteers In the day of Your power; In the beauties of holiness, from the womb of the morning, You have the dew of Your youth.
Psalms 110:3 NKJV
To take the wings of the morning means that you take flight once the day starts. It means you are not joking with the day. You take advantage of the morning to fly. You do not dwell on the failure or success of yesterday. It is a new day and you have to take it with seriousness.
The womb of the morning says to us that every new day is an opportunity to birth a new thing. However, the determiner of a great day is in the morning. A man who wastes his morning has wasted his day.
The life cycle of a man is divided into morning, afternoon, and night (M.A.N.). A man who lacks awareness and wastes his morning and wakes up in the afternoon already is running against time. That is why you see some men running with the urgency of a latecomer. They woke up very late in life.
What are you doing with your morning season of the day and your life? Catch the flight of the morning. Invest in the womb of the morning. It will birth greatness for you.
