The Work of Your Fingers


Psalm 8

Lord, our Lord,
how majestic is your name in all the earth!

You have set your glory
in the heavens.
Through the praise of children and infants
you have established a stronghold against 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 mankind that you are mindful of them,
human beings that you care for them?

You have made them a little lower than the angels
and crowned them with glory and honor.
You made them rulers over the works of your hands;
you put everything under their feet:
all flocks and herds,
and the animals of the wild,
the birds in the sky,
and the fish in the sea,
all that swim the paths of the seas.

Lord, our Lord,
how majestic is your name in all the earth!

I was out this morning just as the sun was beginning to wake and there before my eyes was the most glorious low hanging full moon, bright and wondrous against the backdrop of the sky.  It caused me to truly look and see.  So much of life is driving from one errand to the next, checking off our list of “to-do’s.”  But this morning God put such beauty right in front of my face that everything else fell away and I praised Him just for being Him.

Amen and Amen!!

  1. Boy, do we feel alike at times. I drove to the park this morning as the sun was rising, and tears flowed at the wonder of GOD!
