God's Holy Words - Psalm 8

Updated: Sep 12

In Psalm 8 we find David praising God for all of the remarkable things he has placed us in charge of. In our post-modern world we have been conditioned to think everything has a natural cause. Even Christians have fallen into this trap. When we substitute the term Mother Nature we are actually denying the Persons of the Trinity and using a pagan name. You and I along with all of God's children have be entrusted with many things.

Many of us have become foes and enemies of God, yet God still designates us as stewards of his creation.

We need a savior because of our personal sin. In Hebrews 2:6-8 we see that Christ our Savior is the perfect representation of humanity found in this Psalm.

For the director of music. According to gittith.[b] A psalm of David.

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

You have set your glory in the heavens. 2 Through the praise of children and infants you have established a stronghold against your enemies, to silence the foe and the avenger. 3 When I consider your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have set in place, 4 what is mankind that you are mindful of them, human beings that you care for them?[c]

5 You have made them[d] a little lower than the angels[e] and crowned them[f] with glory and honor. 6 You made them rulers over the works of your hands; you put everything under their[g] feet: 7 all flocks and herds, and the animals of the wild, 8 the birds in the sky, and the fish in the sea, all that swim the paths of the seas.

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