Read Psalm 147:12-20

      Praise the Lord, O Jerusalem!
Praise your God, O Zion!
13   He keeps your gates strong;
he blesses your people.
14   He keeps your borders safe
and satisfies you with the finest wheat.
15   He gives a command to the earth,
and what he says is quickly done.
16   He spreads snow like a blanket
and scatters frost like dust.
17   He sends hail like gravel;
no one can endure the cold he sends!
18   Then he gives a command, and the ice melts;
he sends the wind, and the water flows.
19   He gives his message to his people,
his instructions and laws to Israel.
20   He has not done this for other nations;
they do not know his laws.
Praise the Lord!


The Psalmist contrasts natures obedience to God's word to that of people - God speaks and it hails / snows / brings forth fruit.
God has also spoken to people.


Lord, help me to hear you like nature hears you.  Let obedience and companionship with you be second nature to me.
