We seek you by day, you seek us by night, mysteriously

Mind of Christ  |  September 30

In a dream, in a vision of the night, when deep sleep falls upon men, while slumbering on their beds,
Then He opens the ears of men, and seals their instruction.
I will bless the LORD who has given me counsel; my heart also instructs me in the night seasons.
You will show me the path of life…
Who has put wisdom in the mind? Or who has given understanding to the heart?
Who can number the clouds by wisdom? Or who can pour out the bottles of heaven…

Job 33:15-16, Psalm 16:7,11, Job 38:36-37

Father, when we seek You during the day, You are telling us here that You seek us by night, as we sleep. You open our ears to new knowledge, to new possibilities of service to You. You instruct us in the night seasons in a vision, dreams of mysterious origin which exceed our understanding. Father, when Your Spirit teaches and leads our spirit, it is a gift of immeasurable value, a true act of love from You to us.

Job reminds us that Your wisdom and Your power simply exceed our understanding and experience.  Father, when You teach us as we sleep and when we turn to Your Holy word, during the day, You are giving us access to the mind of Christ. What a magnificent gift. Forgive us for the times we fail to listen and awaken us to new possibilities, directly from the treasure of Your wisdom.

Guide us in paths of righteousness, this day, in Jesus’ name, amen.
