God Is Majestic
Thursday, June 11
Read: Psalm 8
The psalmist praises God, saying, “How majestic is your name in all the earth!” I can relate so much to David’s awe at God’s creation. On this day, two years ago, my wife and I were ziplining through the rainforests of Costa Rica. Halfway through our excursion we were given the option to swim at the base of a waterfall in the middle of a rainforest.
Throughout that whole excursion I was in awe of the majesty of God and his vast creation. It is amazing to think God created all of this for our enjoyment. It is hard to believe that a God who is that big and grand also wants to have relationship with each of us. In this psalm, David understands the beautiful truth that we are invited to share in relationship with that same God.
God, help us to see your majesty and your glory in creation this day. Help us to see how we can care for your creation this day. AMEN.
