IN THE STILLNESS

Psalm 8

1 O Lord, our Sovereign,
    how majestic is Your name in all the earth! You have setYour glory above the heavens.
 Out of the mouths of babes and infants You have founded a bulwark because of your foes, to silence the enemy and the avenger.

When I look at Your heavens, the work of Your fingers,
    the moon and the stars that You have established;
what are human beings that You are mindful of them,
    mortals that You care for them?

5 Yet you have made them a little lower than God, and crowned them with glory and honor.
You have given them dominion over the works of Your hands; You have put all things under their feet, all sheep and oxen, and also the beasts of the field, the birds of the air, and the fish of the sea, whatever passes along the paths of the seas.

9 O Lord, our Sovereign,
    how majestic is Your name in all the earth
!

No other way to describe it, the psalmist is blown away as he considers the majesty of God. We should be awestruck and humble that God cares so much for us and entrusts so much to us.

Prayer: Lord, give me the strength and wisdom to no longer diminish Who You are but rather begin to truly seek to understand even if just an inkling of Who You truly are – eternal and everlasting. Help me to no longer take my relationship with You for granted nor think that my obedience to Your will is negotiable. Help me to love you and love all others without exception or excuse – all in the Name of Your Son, our Christ. AMEN.
