Morning

To God our Savior, who alone is wise.

You are in Christ Jesus, who became for us wisdom from God—and righteousness and sanctification and redemption. § Can you search out the deep things of God? Can you find out the limits of the Almighty? They are higher than heaven—what can you do? Deeper than Sheol—what can you know?

We speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, the hidden wisdom which God ordained before the ages for our glory. § The mystery, which from the beginning of the ages has been hidden in God who created all things through Jesus Christ; to the intent that now the manifold wisdom of God might be made known by the church to the principalities and powers in the heavenly places.

If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him. § The wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, wiling to yield, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality and without hypocrisy.

Jude v. 25; 1 Cor. 1:30; Job 11:7–8; 1 Cor. 2:7; Eph. 3:9–10; James 1:5; 3:17


Evening

When shall I arise, and the night be ended?

Watchman, what of the night?” The watchman said, “The morning comes.”

He who is coming will come and will not tarry. § He shall be like the light of the morning when the sun rises, a morning without clouds.

I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also … Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid. You have heard Me say to you, “I am going away and coming back to you.”

Let all Your enemies perish, O Lord! But let those who love Him be like the sun when it comes out in full strength. § You are all sons of light and sons of the day. We are not of the night nor of darkness. § There shall be no night there.
