“What ails you, O sea, that you flee? O Jordan, that you turn back? O
mountains, that you skip like rams? O hills, like lambs?” (Psalm114:5-6)

The earth belongs to the Lord,
for it is He who made it. Who can stand against the word of the Lord. If he
speaks, the earth trembles. If he calls for the sea to be still, it is. Know
this, O man, that if the creation around you knows how to obey the command of
the Lord, how is it you do not bow down before the One who made you? The Lord
calls and those who have faith listen.

Lord, You have called to me and I have ignored Your Word. Guide me away
from my rebellion to listen to Your Word; for You have given the words of eternal
life. Lead me, O Lord, in the way of righteousness that I would now and always
listen to Your word. Guide me, O Lord, in the way of truth that I would not
veer from its path. In You alone is the hope of every generation.

Lord Jesus, the Word made flesh,
You have come to bring life and light to a people who are not Your people. Make
us Your people that we would journey with You all the days of our life. Lead us
in the way of righteousness that we would have more wisdom than the earth which
trembles at the sound of Your voice. Lead me away from the ways of this world
and into the truth of eternity. Amen.
