Experiencing God’s Creation


By Keith McDonald

I have excellent memories of standing on a mountain top with the College & Career group, and hearing Dave Chantler say, “Now this is God’s country.”  I couldn’t have agreed more.  However, I discovered that not everyone was as eager to hike up a mountain as I was.  I had no idea why they didn’t share the same enthusiasm for experiencing God, through creation, by viewing it from a mountain top! 

My answer came in a Bible study a few years ago.  It hadn’t occurred to me that different people feel Gods power, and love, and glory in different ways.  And it just happens that I feel it most when standing on the mountain.  The powerful elements mixed, with the still beauty of the landscape is, for me, the time I feel closest with God.  I love every minute I’m there, and every memory I bring back.  This is exciting!  Wherever, or whatever, or however you feel God, take every chance you can get to enjoy it.

“Yours, O Lord, is the greatness and the power and the glory and the majesty and the splendour, for everything in heaven and earth is yours.  Yours, O Lord, is the kingdom; you are exalted as head over all.”  1 Chronicles 29:11 NIV
