Loving Lord, Creator of the universe! All things were made from Your hands ~ from Your spoken word. Wonder of wonders we can choose to enter into a life with You, and as we do, the Light ‘comes on’ and we can see clearly. See is meant not just in the physical sense, but also in the spiritual sense. Seeing truth is a function of the spiritual eyes. Humbly I ask Holy Spirit to keep my spiritual eyes in good functioning order. Knead me and form me to the shape You can use. Let me feed others by sprouting forth the Word out of my mind, my mouth, and my hands. There is a hunger in me to help people to know the Word. I place myself in Your control.
In all the world there are mighty wonders ~ huge mountain peaks that rise in glory speaking out Your strength. There are rivers benign and fierce that move swiftly with currents of danger hidden beneath the surface; there are oceans of beauty and power; jungles full of healing plants and ominous critters.
You created impressive animals of distinction like the lion whose very roar puts fear into the hearts of all creatures. You yourself are called the Lion of Judah.

Within the last two weeks there was a woman killed by a lion and another picture of a woman being hugged and loved on by a lion. The lion, King of the jungle: masterful, powerful, and beautiful. I'm thinking too of C.S. Lewis’s 'Aslan' who depicts Jesus.
I could go on and name many of Your creations, but as I began doing it I realized each has good and bad potential. It seems in all life the potential can go either way. The enemy pulls toward evil and tries to subvert us into the soulish realm of “I think, I see, I feel” and keep us living there. God designed us to live with our spirit ruling us. [See Cast Up A Highway under Chapter 8] So many suffer from allowing the enemy’s entanglements existing in the soulish realm to rule them. It brings so much suffering!
Today Lord, allow Your power to flow through my mouth using Your words. There are so many hurting people in the world; help me to bring them to You to show them how to enter into the “Kingdom of the Son of Your love.”
[The Father] has delivered and drawn us to Himself out of the control and the dominion of darkness and has transferred us into the kingdom of the Son of His love,
Father, You are almighty! I ask for the children of the world to come to You, so You can draw them into Your Kingdom. Jesus, I am an ambassador sent from You to represent You and Your kingdom. Equip me with whatever I need to accomplish Your will, to guide Your children to You.
