For most of us, the morning represents “our best.” It’s the time when, for the majority, our minds are clearest and most alert.
It is supposed by some that when God came to commune with Adam and Eve “in the cool of the day” (genesis 3:8), it was a reference to the morning.
David was resolute- “steadfast” in his heart – about the priority of the secret place. He had a constancy of fervency; his zeal for seeking God was unabated and consistently hot. Even as God’s love toward David was steadfast, David’s love for God was steadfast. He performed his “daily vows” (Psalm 61:8) by steadfastly committing himself to seeking God in the early morning hours, the time when he would “awaken the dawn.”
