Genesis 32:13-34:31; Matthew 11:7-30; Psalm 14:1-7; Proverbs 3:19-20
“By wisdom the Lord laid the foundations, by understanding he set the heavens in place, by his knowledge the deeps were divided, and the clouds let drop the dew.”
“the clouds let drop the dew”

And if He did this for us, then
surely as we face
the difficulties and challenges
we can rest in His love and care.
“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.” Matthew 11:28-30

Father, Son and Holy Spirit
His work of
goes on and on and on,
adding and building His Church
with the lives of those who
acknowledge Him as Lord and Savior,
whose sins are washed away in
the Waters of Baptism,
who receive His Body and Blood
at His table,
strengthened and renewed,
who are yoked with Him
as He walks by their side,
and leading them to
His green pastures.
What other ‘god’ does this for his/her people?
What man or woman can do this for another?
Thank you, Jesus, my Lord and Savior, for doing this all for me–and not only me, but every single man, woman, and child that lives, that has ever lived, that ever will walk this earth. To you be all honor and praise and glory, now and forever! Amen.
His wisdom never plans in vain
nor falters nor mistakes.
All that his counsels may ordain
a happy ending makes.

Upon your lips, then lay your hand,
and trust his guiding love;
Then like a rock your peace shall stand
here and in heav’n above.
