“You appoint darkness and it becomes night, in which all the beasts of the forest prowl about. The young lions roar after their prey and seek their food from God.” (Psalm 104:20-21)


God knows the times, seasons and instincts of all creatures. We do better to seek to understand better the mystery of all that God has made than to continuously question why He has done what He has done. The provision of the Lord is so far, wide and deep that a thousand lifetimes would not be enough to explore the depth of God. He provides for all living things.

Lord, I can only begin to see the magnitude of all that You have made. Lead my mind away from the way of this world, which simplistically dismisses things, to begin to understand the depth of Your wisdom. You have marvelously made all things and they are in Your hands. Guide me, O Lord, in Your wisdom that I may learn from You, and grow in knowledge and understanding.

Lord Jesus, You have come to impart the truth of all ages. May I learn from You and grow in the only wisdom there is, knowing that only through You and the grace You give may I gain wisdom. Help me this day Lord Jesus to see through the false knowledge offered by this world to live into the eternal wisdom You grant. By grace, lead me in faith today to seek the eternal truth always. Amen.
