Daily D – Jeremiah 31:35
“This is what the LORD says: The one who gives the sun for light by day, the fixed order of moon and stars for light by night, who stirs up the sea and makes its waves roar — the LORD of Armies is his name:
JEREMIAH 31:35 (CSB)
Presidents and professors deserve our attention. Preachers and prognosticators each deserve their due Sunday by Sunday as one speaks God’s words of truth and life and the other tells us who is going to win football games. Personalities and pilgrims explore their different paths often with interesting explanations.
Whose voice should we attend beyond all others? This verse is one of the slam dunks in the Bible providing the emphatic answer to this question.
Sun Maker and Moon Shaper not only created these shiny orbs, he also placed them perfectly to provide for this planet. He placed stars, other suns with other solar systems with other moons, perfectly arranged to provide silent guidance and awe-filled examination.
Galaxy Creator is our God, our Father in heaven. Behold the work of his words. From his creative mind, he spoke and it was done. His words create worlds.
Read this: “Then the LORD God formed the man out of the dust from the ground and breathed the breath of life into his nostrils, and the man became a living being,” (Genesis 2:7).
Compare and contrast these complementary truths. Ponder the first five days of creation where God spoke all things into being. Consider the sixth day when he “formed the man out of the dust from the ground.” God’s words created worlds. God’s hand formed man.
Who deserves our ultimate attention, our premier focus?
There is only one right answer. This is a Pass/Fail examination.
I will give God my ultimate attention.
Our Father, every good idea, every wise insight ultimately traces its source to you. All healthy and wholesome delight is a gift from your abundance. You have my attention. I am alert to all you want to say. I am ready to do whatever you ask. Amen.

6 Then the LORD spoke to Job out of the storm:
7 “Brace yourself like a man;
I will question you,
and you shall answer me.
8 “Would you discredit my justice?
Would you condemn me to justify yourself?
9 Do you have an arm like God’s,
and can your voice thunder like his?
10 Then adorn yourself with glory and splendor,
and clothe yourself in honor and majesty.
11 Unleash the fury of your wrath,
look at all who are proud and bring them low,
12 look at all who are proud and humble them,
crush the wicked where they stand.
13 Bury them all in the dust together;
shroud their faces in the grave.
14 Then I myself will admit to you
that your own right hand can save you
The New International Version (Grand Rapids, MI: Zondervan, 2011), Job 40:6–14.
Job 29:21-25 21 “People listened to me expectantly,
waiting in silence for my counsel.
22 After I had spoken, they spoke no more;
my words fell gently on their ears.
23 They waited for me as for showers
and drank in my words as the spring rain.
24 When I smiled at them, they scarcely believed it;
the light of my face was precious to them.
25 I chose the way for them and sat as their chief;
I dwelt as a king among his troops;
I was like one who comforts mourners.
