God, in His infinite wisdom created a world where it’s physical nature reflects the shadow of His endless beauty. I am convinced that it is the single most effective tool to bring mankind back to the eternal longing, the eternal question and ultimately the eternal answer.

In Romans, under the influence of the Holy Spirit, Paul tells us that “..since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse…” (Romans 1:20)

In the place of waiting on God, in peace, in the quiet, where no social network is a distraction and no busy to-do’s flash their lights; you’ll find God again.

Creation was set in order as a divine plumb-line for mankind. Inviting us back to the eternal pleasures that can only be found in the whisper of the wind, the roar of the waterfall, the gazing of the stars and within the awe-filled stare of a mountain’s peak.

After all, everything was made by Him, through Him, and points to Him. In the place of waiting on God, in peace, in the quiet, where no social network is a distraction and no busy to-do’s flash their lights; you’ll find God again.

With a calming of the soul and practical meditation on God and His creation Isaiah 40:31 will become a reality:

“But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.”

PRACTICAL APPLICATION

  1. Make it a discipline to quiet your soul in nature and commune with the Holy Spirit—-It’ll awaken love, passion, dreams, faith, and clarity
  2. Allow the beauty realm of earth, inspire us to pray for the Spirit of Wisdom and Revelation to see the beauty realm of Heaven, of Christ, and all that He has for us.
  3. Then, from that place of fascination, be motivated to bring lost souls, straying from this place of Freedom in Jesus, home! No better way to waste your life and invest in the eternal life to come!
