“The trees of the Lord drink their fill, the cedars of Lebanon which He planted, where the birds build their nests, and the stork, whose home is the fir trees.”  (Psalm 104:16-17)


We often do not think of the reality of all of the provision that is around us.  The wonder of what God has made and how all life is sustained.  Marvel at the work of the Lord.  Hear the good news of great joy which He has given to all who will listen.  Know that He has called you by name and has given provision for you as well.  The Lord is good and share His goodness with those who turn to Him.

Lord, open my eyes to see and my ears to hear the truth of Your goodness which is preached every day with the life that is around me.  Guide my heart to be open that I may not reject what I hear and what I see.  Lead me into a life that rejoices in You and whose hope is upon Your Word and Your promises.  May I journey this upward path in Your presence and by Your power.

Lord Jesus, You have paved the way for all who will turn to You to see, hear, know and witness the goodness that is all around.  Yes, there is plenty of evil in this world, but You have overcome the world.  Lead me in grace to follow in Your footsteps that I may now and always walk according to the way for which You have created me to walk.  In Your Spirit, guide me now and always.  Amen.
