I enjoy nature and giving praise to its Creator. I remember that Jesus used nature as a teaching tool, to encourage people not to worry.

He used simple wildflowers as an example:  “Consider the lilies”. His conclusion: “If God clothes something temporary in such glory, He will surely do much more for us”. (Matt. 6:28-34).

Other portions of Scripture indicate that creation is one of the ways God uses to tell us about Himself.

 “The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament shows His handiwork,” wrote David.

And Paul wrote: “For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse” (Rom. 1:20).

God so loves us and wants us to know Him that He put evidence of Himself everywhere we look.
