Psalm 8: 1-5 O LORD, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth! You have set your glory above the heavens. From the lips of children and infants you have ordained praise because of your enemies, to silence the foe and the avenger. When I consider your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have set in place, what is man that you are mindful of him, the son of man that you care for him? You made him a little lower than the heavenly beings and crowned him with glory and honor. (NIV)
This beautiful psalm speaks of God’s majesty and how all of His creation reflects His glory and greatness. All creation sees His work in the skies every night with the moon and the stars. Just as all creation shouts out praises to God, our very being speaks of His grace and mercy. He made us and cares about us. Why me? Why should Almighty Creator God care about me? He created and gave us a position of honor. I love the fact that David is questioning his worthiness in relation to God’s great power and might. I have wondered too, why did God choose me? He concludes the psalm with the same phrase with which he started. All of this is due to God’s majesty and grace. How blessed am I to be loved by Almighty God. I agree with David that I am unworthy of this position and humbled by his mercy and love.
Think about our great God today and thank Him for choosing and loving you. He cares and loves you!
Being loved by God is a great place to be,
