Psalms Sunday #8

Psalm 8

1O LORD, our Lord, how excellent is thy name in all the earth! who hast set thy glory above the heavens.
2Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings hast thou ordained strength because of thine enemies, that thou mightest still the enemy and the avenger.
3When I consider thy heavens, the work of thy fingers, the moon and the stars, which thou hast ordained;
4What is man, that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man, that thou visitest him?
5For thou hast made him a little lower than the angels, and hast crowned him with glory and honour.
6Thou madest him to have dominion over the works of thy hands; thou hast put all things under his feet:
7All sheep and oxen, yea, and the beasts of the field;
8The fowl of the air, and the fish of the sea and whatsoever passeth through the paths of the seas.
9O LORD our Lord, how excellent is thy name in all the earth!

When I consider thy heavens...what is man that thou art mindful of him?

My daughter and I learned some facts about stars once. Did you know that there are stars that are larger than the distance between the earth and the sun. The earth is more than 90 million miles from the sun!!

I don't even know what to say. God has created galaxies upon galaxies, trillions of millions of miles deep and wide, and yet He cares about the intricate, sometimes seemingly meaningless details of my life. What an Awesome God we serve!!

We ought to tell more people about Him. :-)


  1. I love your comment. Isn't God amazing? Only He could fashion the earth like this with all these amazing facts. I don't get it when people don't believe....

  2. Wow, that's incredible that some stars are THAT BIG!!! INCREDIBLE INDEED!!!
