Scripture:

Psalm 8 v. 3-4
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?

Observation:

When we consider the things that the Lord created, it humbles us. David is describing the Lord hand placing the universe, the heavens, stars, & moon,  and it moves him to consider his own status before God. What is mankind that you are mindful of them? Why would the Ultimate Creator, the one who has control over the Universe pay much attention to humans and even more shocking- that He would care for them?

Application:

Let’s take time to consider and meditate on who God is.

Look around at His creation. Give thought to the vastness of God and His supremacy over all. Pausing long enough to examine these things, makes me feel small. It should.

Then recall that He is mindful of us and cares for us. May that humble us, encourage us, and shape how we respond today in our call to glorify Jesus.

Pray:

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

Your creation reveals your nature- beautiful in every detail. Forgive us Father, for how often we overlook the beauty of your creation. Be gracious with us when we miss it. Help us find joy in our “smallness” knowing that you are above all and still know us and care for us. Remind us that we were made by you and for you so that we may live to glorify you . Amen.
