Psalm 8

Today I was awake early enough to see the sunrise. Sunsets have always been my favorite but it was equally beautiful to see the sun rise. I have been reading through the Psalms and I am reminded of Psalm 8. I encourage you to take some time to reflect on the greatness of God.

Psalm 8

O Lord, our Lord,
    how excellent is Your name in all the earth!

You have set Your glory
    above the heavens.
Out of the mouth of babes and nursing infants
    You have ordained strength
because of Your enemies,
    to silence the enemy and the avenger.
When I consider Your heavens,
    the work of Your fingers,
the moon and the stars,
    which You have established,
what is man that You are mindful of him,
    and the son of man that You attend to him?

For You have made him a little lower than the angels,
    and crowned him with glory and honor.
You have given him dominion over the works of Your hands;
    You have put all things under his feet,
all sheep and oxen,
    and also the beasts of the field,
the birds of the air,
    and the fish of the sea,
    and whatever travels the paths of the seas.

O Lord, our Lord,
    how excellent is Your name in all the earth!
