Isaiah 45:3 and Sunset Over Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Tennessee.
“I will give you hidden treasures, riches stored in secret places, so that you may know that I am the LORD, the God of Israel, who summons you by name.” Isaiah 45:3 (NIV)
Secret Places in Nature
How wonderful is God’s creativity. Nature is a reflection of His infinite imagination and glory. Go find a place in nature—perhaps a secret place—and meditate on His goodness.
Read all of Isaiah 45.
Isaiah 32:17-18 an Old Country Church, Great Smoky Mountains National Park, North Carolina.
“The fruit of that righteousness will be peace; its effect will be quietness and confidence forever. My people will live in peaceful dwelling places, in secure homes, in undisturbed places of rest.” Isaiah 32:17-18.
A Peaceful Dwelling in God
This world offers us very little peace and rest. Today’s uncertain times only magnify the lack of rest and peace the world has to offer. If we want true rest and peace we can only find it in God. And no matter how uncertain the times God’s people can find rest in Him.

Isaiah 6:1-3 and Sunrise, Jay Cooke State Park, Minnesota.
“In the year of King Uzziah’s death I saw the Lord sitting on a throne, lofty and exalted, with the train of His robe filling the temple. Seraphim stood above Him, each having six wings: with two he covered his face, and with two he covered his feet, and with two he flew. And one called out to another and said, “Holy, Holy, Holy, is the LORD of hosts, the whole earth is full of His glory.” Isaiah 6:1-3
Creation is Filled with His glory
On a camping trip to Minnesota my family and I listened to a family worship CD called The Character of God, by Seeds Family Worship. One song “God is Holy” simply recited Isaiah 6:1-3 and nothing more. As we drove around and looked at the fall colors this song became our favorite. The beauty and mystery of nature speaks of a holy transcendent God. Surely, the whole earth is filled with His glory.
Read about God and His glory in Isaiah chapter 6.
Isaiah 66:1 and Mount Moran, Grand Teton National Park, Wyoming.
“Thus says the Lord, ‘Heaven is My throne and the earth is My footstool. Where then is a house you could build for Me? And where is a place that I may rest?’” Isaiah 66:1
This verse is a great word picture for how great our God is. We see the Earth as great in size, but to God it is nothing but a simple footstool. Amazing!
If the earth is small to God so are our problems.
Read all of Isaiah 66. The chapter is a prophecy about how many people foolishly think they are great, but it is God who is truly great.
Jeremiah 32:38-39 and a Trail in Jay Cooke State Park, Minnesota.
“They shall be My people, and I will be their God; and I will give them one heart and one way, that they may fear Me always, for their own good and for the good of their children after them.” Jeremiah 32:38-39
Follow the Path to God
Beautiful things happen when we follow after God. When we walk with The Lord He call us His People and guides us as our God. He gives us a new heart and a new path to follow. His path leads to beauty and peace.
Joy and hope reside on the path to God.
