Nature Plays

Listen to this, Job; stop and consider God’s wonders.  Do you know how God controls the clouds and makes his lightning flash? Do you know how the clouds hang poised, those wonders of him who has perfect knowledge? Job 37:14-16 NIV

As my husband and I were driving home from seeing family, I noticed it was a beautiful day in more ways than one. Time with family is always precious to me and I was considering that on the way home. As I was looking out the window, I became enamored with all that was going on in my view! Nature seemed to be putting on a show for me! Everything was looking its best and either moving or standing beautifully still and proud. I tried to best “review” the play they were performing, directed by God.

In Job 37, Elihu is talking to Job about the wonder of God. He tells Job to basically, be still and listen to what I am saying. This is important stuff about God. He tells Job to CONSIDER God’s wonders. Think on them. Marvel in them. Nature is something we wonder at, but God has perfect knowledge of. Isn’t that worth thinking on? Our God is amazing!

Dear God,

Your wondrous display of nature makes me stop and stare. It is so beautiful. It makes me think of YOUR nature, Your goodness. Your beauty. It boggles my mind that You have done so much for me. Please open my eyes to what You want me to see and focus on. Show me ways that I can point others to You. Thank You for people in my life, who, like Elihu, tell me to stop and wonder about You. I love You so much! Amen

As you go through your day, I hope nature mesmerizes you too. It points to God, which is an excellent place for us to look! Have an awesome day!
