In Nature, we notice that in the early morning hours , that the grass and garden plants are moist with dew from the atmosphere.   Sometimes the moisture even creates a fog in the low-lying valley areas.   Often, insects, amphibians and other small animals will nourish themselves with this dew before it dries up from the heat of the day. The plants also benefit from this moisture as well- especially baby seedlings.

The Holy Spirit is just like the Dew that covers the grasses, and plants in the early morning hours.   The scriptures teach us to seek God early, before the cares of the day crowd Him out and take all of our attention.    If we seek Him early before our day begins, He can nourish us and impart His Living water to us that will carry us through the heat of the day and keep us alive, sustaining us when conditions outside of us become hectic or chaotic.

There is an old hymn that I really love called, "In the Garden"  The first line really   applies to this.

"I come to the garden alone, while the dew is still on the roses,

and the voice I hear falling on my ear, the Son of God discloses;

And  He walks with me, and He talks with me, and He tells me I am His own;

And the joy we share as we tarry there, none other has ever known!"

There's a line to an old 70's song that goes, "We have to get back to the Garden" 

How true that is on many levels!   To get back to that condition of Eden that this Earth once enjoyed we need to connect with our God within the garden of our hearts- we need to find that "secret place" where we can really connect with Him each morning before the cares of this life crowd Him out!        Jesus knew this fact, and there were many occasions in the scriptures where He basically prayed all throughout the night to the Father during crucial times. 

How much more do WE need that spiritual sustenance with God that can only come by us meeting our Creator half way and seeking Him so that He can let Himself be found by us!
