Lift Up Your EyesWednesday 7th October

The stars above are vast and can sometimes make us feel insignificant. But Psalm 8 assures us we are significant - the same majestic God who created the night's sky also created man and cares for each one of us.
Selected Scripture

Genesis 1:16

16 And God made the two great lights—the greater light to rule the day and the lesser light to rule the night—and the stars.

(ESV)

Isaiah 40:26

26   Lift up your eyes on high and see:
    who created these?
  He who brings out their host by number,
    calling them all by name;
  by the greatness of his might
    and because he is strong in power,
    not one is missing.

(ESV)

Psalm 8

How Majestic Is Your Name

To the choirmaster: according to The Gittith.1 A Psalm of David.

8:1   O LORD, our Lord,
    how majestic is your name in all the earth!
  You have set your glory above the heavens.
    Out of the mouth of babies and infants,
  you have established strength because of your foes,
    to still the enemy and the avenger.
  When I look at your heavens, the work of your fingers,
    the moon and the stars, which you have set in place,
  what is man that you are mindful of him,
    and the son of man that you care for him?
  Yet you have made him a little lower than the heavenly beings2
    and crowned him with glory and honor.
  You have given him dominion over the works of your hands;
    you have put all things under his feet,
  all sheep and oxen,
    and also the beasts of the field,
  the birds of the heavens, and the fish of the sea,
    whatever passes along the paths of the seas.
  O LORD, our Lord,
    how majestic is your name in all the earth!
