In Psalm 92:2, we read: “At each and every sunrise we will be thanking You for Your kindness and Your love. As the sun sets and all through the night, we will keep proclaiming, ‘You are so faithful!’” (TPT). You might think this sounds redundant. Depending on your particular situation, it might be very repetitive. I know people who thank God every morning for the same exact things. Despite the repetition, the truth is, we should be thanking God “at each and every sunrise.” The repetition we need not focus upon, unless our gratitude is not in our heart and only on our lips. Then we need to ask the Spirit to work through that with us.
Even so, there is a great importance for us to be thanking God “at each and every sunrise.” It is fruitful to wake up each morning and focus on God’s kindness and His love, and to start the day with gratitude. Consider this, focus is very important. This verse is saying we wake up thankful. We wake up focused on God’s love and His kindness and His faithfulness This sounds like an awesome way to wake up and start our day on the right foot. This is very different from waking up on the wrong side of the bed. Can you imagine the benefits of waking up with the “each and every” thankful sunrise during the week? Can you imagine how this change of perspective impacts your day from the very beginning?
Maybe you have been struggling this week. This is the day to begin the “each and every sunrise.” Start a new habit. Think about God’s recent kindnesses in your life. Think about how God has shown you love this past week. How has God been faithful? Pray about these things. Thank God. Share the Gospel with yourself. We all need this — each and every day. Each and every sunrise.
