Today’s Bible passages are: Genesis 46, Mark 16, Job 12, and Romans 16

job 12 - 1By Kelli Campbell

Today’s art is a response to Job 12:

“But ask the beasts, and they will teach you;

the birds of the heavens, and they will tell you;

or the bushes of the earth, and they will teach you;

and the fish of the sea will declare to you.

Who among all these does not know

that the hand of the Lord has done this?

In his hand is the life of every living thing

and the breath of all mankind. (Job 12:7-10, ESV)

Kelli’s thoughts on her art follow:

This passage speaks to me as a photographer—one more comfortable observing the natural world than struggling through a scholarly treatise on nature. Recently, I have been slowly chewing on The Gospel According to Job by Mike Mason, and in reference to these verses he states, “nature still stands as His first and sufficient revelation, His first Gospel” (p 143.) The Bible tells us in Psalm 19:1, “The heavens declare the glory of God,” and again in Romans 1:20, “For his invisible attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world.” Job got it. His faith was big enough to grasp “all the strangeness and wildness of reality itself.” So today I encourage you, as Job has encouraged me, to look out your window and see what the Lord has to say.

Today’s Question: What does God’s world have to say to you today?
