Now no one can look at the sun, bright as it is in the skies after the wind has swept them clean. Out of the north he comes in golden splendor; God comes in awesome majesty. Job 37:21-22 Holy Bible
I recently read an article where the author equated sunrise worship in nature with worshiping Baal or some other ancient deity.
I have to question whether the author is a city slicker.
It is with immense joy that I sit by the side of a stream in the early morning before sunrise. Just as the sun begins to rise a single bird with begin a beautiful song. So it is joined in by a chorus of other birds, frogs and crickets. I of course close my eyes and play what is in my heart as a morning love song to Jehovah. Oh what a wonderful sensation.
Afterwards He and I talk. It is a beautiful relationship.
Try sitting by the ocean or a lake and watch a sunrise or sunset and see if you do not feel an urge to have a heart to heart discussion with Jehovah.
Walk through a forest after a ice storm and see the icy crystals glistening and see if you do not marvel at Jehovah’s beauty.
Go for a walk through the forest during a light snowfall or walk through a meadow in the early morning drinking in the intoxicating fragrance of wildflowers and see if you do not feel close to Him and want to worship Him.
Indeed, didn’t David write His most beautiful Psalms while in the wilderness?
I say that: “The closer you are to nature the closer you are to God.” Joseph- Anthony: Green
