Psalm Saturday 8d

O LORD our Lord, how excellent is thy name in all the earth!  who hast set thy glory above the heavens.  Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings hast thou ordained strength because of thine enemies, that thou mightest still the enemy and the avenger.  When I consider thy heavens, the work of thy fingers, the moon and the stars, which thou hast ordained; What is man, that thou art mindful of him?  and the son of man, that thou visitest him?  For thou hast made him a little lower than the angels, and hast crowned him with glory and honour.

Psalm 8:1-5

“When I consider thy heavens, the work of thy fingers, the moon and the stars, which thou hast ordained; What is man, that thou art mindful of him? and the sons of man, that thou visitest him?”

Those are interesting questions.  I do not know what the creator of the universe is mindful of me.  I am just a weak, frail human.  I am sinful and evil.  I often don’t do the things I know I should do and I often do the things I know I shouldn’t do.  But God is still mindful of me.  He knows me and He helps me.  This passage even says that He visits us.  He came down to “visit” mankind in the flesh around two thousand years ago.  He still visits us day by day to help and comfort us.  Why does God love us?  I don’t know, but I am thankful for it!

  1. I think He must see what we could be rather than what we are.
