“O Lord, how many are Your works! In wisdom You have made them all; the earth is full of Your possessions. There is the sea, great and broad, in which are swarms without number, animals both small and great.” (Psalm 104:24-25)


Can anyone begin to count all of the works of the Lord? Can anyone fathom the God who knows the heart of every soul? By His understanding and awareness, all that is comes into being by the hand of the Lord. It is all His and He knows what He has made. Rejoice in the presence of the Lord and continue to seek Him while He may be found. Know that in the Lord is truth and life and all that is needed.

Lord, I see the anxious reactions of humans to conditions and then fathom that You know all of these things and knew them before they happened. Guide me, O Lord, in wisdom that I would not worry, but marvel at Your glory. All things are in Your hands and You are the One who made all things. In You alone is every answer to our questions and in You alone is all of our hope. Lead me to abide with You, O Lord.

Come, Holy Spirit, and guide me into the everlasting way of life. Lead me by Your counsel and change my heart to marvel at Your creation, and to worship You, the Creator of all things. Lead me day by day and step by step that I may now and forever walk in the grace I’ve been given. Let my heart sing praises of You, O Lord. May my life be wholly yours and be lived according to Your will. Amen.
