PSALM 8 The Awesomeness of God & The Insignificance of Mankind
To see just how awesome God is, just consider the universe around us. To stand in the open air on a starry night and look up at the universe around us is an awesome experience that puts things into perspective by reminding us of our own smallness in comparison.
The psalmist David wrote:
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, you have set in place, what is man that you are mindful of man, the son of man that you care for him?
Q Have you ever been struck by the awesomeness of God?
Use PSALM 8 as a prayer or song of praise to express your response.
