"Be ready in the morning"

Beginning your day in the quietness of prayer can make all the difference in the world.

"Be ready in the morning" was God's call to Moses at a decisive moment. He was to receive the Ten Commandments a second time. In anger, Moses had broken the first tablets on which the Commandments were written after he had come down from Mount Sinai and found his faithless followers worshiping a golden calf.

Through his single-minded obedience and greater humility, self-righteous indignation (and its consequent rash action) had been subdued enough so that God's purpose could be carried out and Moses could hear this directive: "Be ready in the morning, and come up in the morning unto mount Sinai, and present thyself there to me in the top of the mount. And no man shall come up with thee, neither let any man be seen throughout all the mount; neither let the flocks nor herds feed before that mount."
