Our Wild God
Take a moment to refresh, refocus, and refine your faith.
Lord God, thank you for your creation and the wildness that still exits in it. We humans have done so much to plunder and abuse the natural gifts you’ve given us over the centuries, but there are depths and reaches of this world we have yet to discover or tame. I’m reminded by the freedom and primal drive of animals that you, their creator, are also untamed and unpredictable, powerful and majestic. So often I try harnessing you to my wants and wishes, to domesticate you. But you, God, are thankfully so much greater. Help me remember the wildness of my God, and to honor you accordingly. Amen.
'Do you not fear Me?' declares the LORD 'Do you not tremble in My presence? For I have placed the sand as a boundary for the sea, An eternal decree, so it cannot cross over it. Though the waves toss, yet they cannot prevail; Though they roar, yet they cannot cross over it.
