Nature Illustrates Scripture

Blessed is the man that 
walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, 
nor standeth in the way of sinners, 
nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.

But his delight is in the law of the Lord; 
and in his law doth he meditate day and night.

And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water,
that bringeth forth his fruit in his season;
his leaf also shall not wither; 
and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.

Psalm 1:1-3

The Lord speaks to us in so many ways, one of them being nature. There are countless illustrations of His word as we walk around outside, validations you might say, that what He has told us in Scripture is really true.

I want to be like that tree planted by a river of water, producing leaves and fruit during the appropriate seasons, remaining strong and vital.

When I spend time in Bible reading every day and then meditate throughout the day on what I have read, God blesses that. He helps me to reach the conclusions and to have the kind of perspective that is true.
