God’s Glory

This beautiful very expressive Psalm comes to The Church in the book of Psalms. I suggest that since we are a part of The Church, it will do us well to take a close look at several selective psalms; psalm 8, 16, 63, and 107.

Psalm  8 is a solemn meditation on the glory and greatness of God.  The psalm begins and ends with the very same acknowledgment of our Creator God.  God is God and how majestic is God’s name over the entire earth.  The psalmist goes on to exalt God as God’s goodness extends to all humanity.

We can read such wonderful expressions of God’s goodness and his glory as we read and meditate. God is to be praised for revealing himself to all people.  The psalmist tells of God making himself and his great name known to the people of the earth.

From this psalm we can all come to see God’s wondrous and loving concern. Not only for us but for the love He has over all, especially those whom have made in God’s image.  From the psalmist I have come to believe that God has made humankind over everything else, and for this, we join together, even with the psalmist, to offer God our praise, and in so doing, we are especially blest.


Our Heavenly Father, from the words of the psalmist my heart grows even closer to you and your Son, our Lord and Savior. In Jesus name I pray.
