Proverbs 3:16-18 and a Path in a Meadow, Hitchcock Nature Center, Iowa.
“Long life is in her right hand; in her left hand are riches and honor. Her ways are pleasant ways and all her paths are peace. She is a tree of life to those who take hold of her, and happy are all who hold her fast.” Proverbs 3:16-18
Pleasant Ways and Paths to Peace
This Bible passage speaks of godly wisdom. Wisdom’s ways are pleasant and lead us to places of peace and contentment. Proverbs says, “All her paths are peace.” Not some of her paths, but all her paths. The Bible is clear, the way to discover God’s best for us is to live by His wisdom. The wisdom of the world leads to destruction. The wisdom of God leads to peace.

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.

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.

Psalm 95:3-4 and Clouds over Hallett Peak and Flattop Mountain, Rocky Mountain National Park, Colorado.
“For the LORD is a great God, and a great King above all gods, in His hand are the depths of the earth, the peaks of the mountains are His also.” Psalm 95:3-4
God of the Mountain Peaks
The world’s mountain peaks rise up great and strong, but our God is greater. He holds the mountains in His hands. Our Lord created them with strength and beauty, but they are like mole hills before Him. Praise the Lord, for His power far exceeds the strength of mountains. He is a great and wonderful God.

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.
