A Daily Devotion for Wednesday, July 21


Job 12:7-9


”But ask the animals, and they will teach you, or the birds of the air, and they will tell you; or speak to the earth, and it will teach you, or let the fish of the sea inform you. Which of all these does not know that the hand of the Lord has done this?“


I have no doubt, deep in their living beings, each animal “knows” it’s Maker. God put into each of them the instinct to live, and wired each animal (exactly and perfectly) to know how to survive, find a mate and take care of its young. When I see God’s creation in wildlife, it is an extra special treat. I can vividly remember the few times I have seen a moose or a bear. I love that God protects these creatures by blessing them with special cunning to stay hidden and out of man’s way. God’s creation is a never-ending source of joy.

Heavenly Father, today I am full of thanks. You have provided us with a world full of wonders and miracles. We are indeed blessed. Amen

Job 12: 7-9

God created all this for our pleasure. It is a small glimpse of what heaven will be like. It is a wonderful thing to look forward to.


Dearest Lord, you give us such pleasure in all you created on this earth. The joy we feel when we see a rainbow, a new fawn or a beautiful flower, i…

Job 12:7-9 - “But ask the animals, and they will teach you, or the birds of the air, and they will tell you; or speak to the earth, and it will teach you, or let the fish of the sea inform you. Which of all these does not know that the hand of the Lord has done this?“


The author uses curious language here; “ask” the animals and the birds, being taught and informed by animals, birds and fish. In truth a deep appreciation for all of creation is our way of asking it to teach us to more fully grasp the love God has for all that has been created. Our discussion last night brought these words to life…
