1 Chronicles 16:31 and Mountain Meadow and Wildflowers, Summit County, Colorado.
“Let the heavens be glad, and let the earth rejoice; and let them say among the nations, ‘The LORD reigns.'” 1 Chronicles 16:31.
Where Beauty Points
The beauty in nature points us to God if we would only dare to see it. Nature’s beauty romances our hearts and calls us to a better place that we long for. Deep inside we don’t simply just want the mountain, the flowers and the peace we find in nature. Deep inside we long for the Maker of the flowers and the mountains.
This is true for the Christian believer and the non believer, but only the believer dares to acknowledge God as the source and bows before Him. In God we find everlasting peace and beauty.
Sing praises to God and read all of Chronicles 16 in context.
