Job 12:7-10 “Ask the animals, and they will teach you, or the birds of the air, and they will tell you; or speak to the earth, and it will teach you, or let the fish of the sea inform you. Which of these does not know that the hand of the Lord has done this? In his hand is the life of every creature and the breath of all mankind.” (NIV)
Romans 1:20 “For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse.” (KJV)
Psalm 96:11-13 “Let the heavens rejoice, let the earth be glad, let the sea resound, and all that is in it; let the fields be jubilant, and everything in them. Then all the trees of the forest will sing for joy; they will sing before the Lord.” (NIV)
Psalm 148:1-10 “Praise the Lord from the heavens, praise him in the heights above. Praise him, all his angels, praise him, all his heavenly hosts. Praise him, sun and moon, praise him, all you shining stars. Praise him, you highest heavens and you waters above the skies. Let them praise the name of the Lord, for he commanded and they were created. He set them in place for ever and ever; he gave a decree that will never pass away.
Praise the Lord from the earth, you great sea creatures and all ocean depths, lightning and hail, snow and clouds, stormy winds that do his bidding, you mountains and all hills, fruit trees and all cedars, wild animals and all cattle, small creatures and flying birds.” (NIV)
17 Now if we are children, then we are heirs – heirs of God, and co-heirs with Christ; if indeed we suffer with him that we might also be glorified with him. 18 For I consider that the sufferings of this time now are not worthy to be compared to the glory about to be revealed to us. 19 For the eager expectation of the creation awaits eagerly the revelation of the sons of God. 20 For the creation was subjected to frailty, not of its own free will, but because of him who subjected it, in hope 21 that the creation itself also will be freed from its slavery to corruption into the freedom of the glory of the children of God. 22 For we know that all the creation groans and suffers the agony of labor pains together until now; 23 and not only this, but we ourselves, who have the first-fruits of the Spirit, also groan within ourselves, while we eagerly await our adoption of sons – the redemption of our body.
