Tuesday, August 4 — Psalm 92:1–8
Isaiah 64,65; Colossians 4:10–1 Thessalonians 1:5a

 

Have you not known? Have you not heard? The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He does not faint or grow weary; his understanding is unsearchable. Isaiah 40:28

 

To the only wise God be glory forever through Jesus Christ! Romans 16:27 (NIV)

 

Who are you God? How can we know you? Your ways and your understanding are not like our own, yet you call us to pray, to worship, to serve. Help us to trust in your wisdom. May your grace, known to us in our Lord Jesus Christ, be sufficient. Amen.
