The morning watch is essential. You must not face the day until you have faced God, nor look into the face of others until you have looked into His. You cannot expect to be victorious if the day begins only in your own strength.
Face the work of every day with the influence of a few thoughtful quiet moments with God. Do not meet other people, even those of your own home, until you have first met the great Guest and honored Companion of your life, Jesus Christ.
Meet Him alone; meet Him regularly. Meet Him with His open Book of counsel before you; and face the regular and the irregular duties of each day with the influence of His personality definitely guiding your every act.
