Psalm 65:8-9

“Is the Bible relevant today?” This can sometimes be a question we ask ourselves when reading the Bible. So, we compiled Scripture meditations like this one to help see reasons why the Bible is relevant, and to help us connect with God.


When Nature Leaves Us in Awe and Wonder of God

Try setting yourself in a place of wonder and awe. Or more accurately, open your eyes to the place of wonder you’ve already been placed in.

Seriously, if we look around us at creation, there is so much that leaves us in awe and wonder of God. We’ve got this entire, dauntingly huge, beautiful, and richly complex earth to call home!

Spend some time in wonder by joining us as we pray through an excerpt from Psalm 65. Check it out below!

Psalm 65:8–9

8 The whole earth is filled with awe at your wonders;

    where morning dawns, where evening fades,

    you call forth songs of joy.

9 You care for the land and water it;

    you enrich it abundantly.

The streams of God are filled with water

    to provide the people with grain,

    for so you have ordained it.
