Knowing how to get started reading the Bible can be tricky. But don’t get discouraged! No matter how far you’ve come in your faith, everyone has struggled with reading the Bible at some point. That’s why we put together some Scripture meditations like this one to help you get started.

Seeing God in Nature

Creation is overflowing with the goodness of God. From the highest of mountains to the depths of the seas, we see the vastness of his grace, beauty, and creativity.

The natural world has always pointed to our Creator in a way that few other things are able to. His power and majesty are on full display.

As we take time to care for the creation God has provided, let us remember and celebrate all the ways he cares for us.

Job 12:7-10

7 “But ask the animals, and they will teach you,

    or the birds in the sky, and they will tell you;

8 or speak to the earth, and it will teach you,

    or let the fish in the sea inform you.

9 Which of all these does not know

    that the hand of the Lord has done this?

10 In his hand is the life of every creature

    and the breath of all mankind.”
