Today’s Scripture:

Psalm 8

O Lord, our Sovereign, how majestic is your name in all the earth! You have set your glory above the heavens.

Out of the mouths of babes and infants you have founded a bulwark because of your foes, to silence the enemy and the avenger.

When I look at your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars that you have established;

what are human beings that you are mindful of them, mortals that you care for them?

Yet you have made them a little lower than God, and crowned them with glory and honor.

You have given them dominion over the works of your hands; you have put all things under their feet,

all sheep and oxen, and also the beasts of the field,

the birds of the air, and the fish of the sea, whatever passes along the paths of the seas.

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

Food For Thought:

The line that stands out to me in this passage of Scripture is: “When I look at your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars that you have established; what are human beings that you are mindful of them, mortals that you care for them?” This is a beautiful piece of poetry. Today, I want to encourage you to draw this piece of poetry. Sketch God’s magnificence.

Prayer:

O Singer, your song is welcome and holiness,

healing and trust.

Teach us a new song to sing your praise,

and tune our ears to melodies we have never heard,

that we may add our voices to the harmony

uniting all creation as one

in adoration and thanksgiving of you,

through Christ, your all-embracing song. Amen.
