And in the morning, rising up a great while before day, he [Jesus] went out and departed into a solitary place, and there, He prayed. (Mark 1:35)

Every day when I rise in the morning, I go to the kitchen to get a cup of coffee, I grab my Bible, and I head to a hallowed place of prayer in our home. I shut the door to that room, which happens to be the TV room. There, I have a leather chair that has become my daily meeting place with God each morning. Recently, I looked at that chair, and it is practically ruined with “scratches” — crease marks — from the thousands of hours I have sat upon it as I’ve prayed. But those marks are precious to me because they represent countless hours I’ve spent sitting there, seeking the face of God and letting Him saturate my heart. Those scratches memorialize the place where I meet with God every morning, unless I’m traveling abroad. (When Denise and I are traveling, we both rise early and seek out separate places where we each can pray privately, just as we do when we are home.)

Denise kindly understands that as long as the door to our TV room is shut in the mornings, I am in fellowship with the Holy Spirit, reading my Bible, and allowing the Word of God to search my heart and soul to bring me into closer alignment with Jesus. Denise graciously never interrupts — unless it’s for some urgent reason. She knows that this time alone with God will make me a better Christian, a better husband, and a more devoted follower of Jesus Christ.

Do you know that as a believer, you can win even when you lose? Whatever you’ve lost, you don’t have to live in defeat. I want you to know it’s not over—God’s powerful restoration is on the way!

Maybe you’ve lost something precious. Perhaps you’re living in regret over years lost to depression, sickness, or a series of failures. Perhaps you’re at a place where your hopes have been crushed, and you’re saying to yourself, “It’s over for me!”

If that is you, here’s a powerful truth I want you to get into your heart: Even if the enemy has robbed you of what’s yours, God is willing and able to turn things around for you. He’s willing and able to restore what’s been taken from you.

Despite your losses, you can expect a bright future when you look to the Lord for restoration!

"But in these last days, He has spoken to us by his Son, whom He appointed heir of all things, and through whom also He made the universe." (Heb. 1:2)

Have you ever had the experience of being somewhere away from the noise of a big city? Perhaps on a mountain somewhere, on a desert, and as you set and looked up at a starry sky, you were absolutely amazed at the silence. It was quiet, right?

Not exactly. It wasn't quiet, it was simply that you couldn't hear the sounds. Strange but true is the fact that the atmosphere around us is filled with a thousand voices, but you're not tuned to them. You don't pick them up. If somebody should ask, "What kind of a device are you listening to?", perhaps you would say, "Well, it's a radio," or "I'm listening online, over the internet." There are voices, sound waves, cellular and digital signals all around us.
