Psalm Saturday, 8g

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.  Thou madest him to have dominion over the works of thy hands; thou hast put all things under his feet: All sheep and oxen, yea, and the beasts of the field; The fowl of the air, and the fish of the sea, and whatsoever  passeth through the paths of the seas.  O LORD our Lord, how excellent is thy name in all the earth!

Psalm 8:1-9

This Psalm ends with the words “O LORD our Lord, how excellent is thy name in all the earth!”  Sometimes we look around and see that the Lord’s name in not honored in the earth.  Sometimes it seems that His name is despised and rejected on earth.  But, despite what men may say of think, His name is still excellent.  His is the one who created all of the earth.  It is all His, whether some men may accept that or not.  His name is excellent to those of us who have believed in Him.  It is the name that can free us from sin and from ourselves.

Whether some people will admit it or not, the name of the Lord is excellent.  It doesn’t matter what people think about it – it’s the truth and it is not going to change.  His name is excellent!
