How Excellent Is Your Name

 

 

 

Last night was the perfect kind of night to be outside.

With dinner in the oven, I decided to go for a mile jog/walk.

The temperature was comfortable and the wind was soothing.

After dinner, I decided to venture outside and photograph some stars and planets.

At least for this one night, there seemed to be no mosquitoes out.

They tend to make outdoor evening photography almost impossible.

As I had set up my camera for a particular shot, I looked to my left in the sky and saw a meteor streak by and burn up in the atmosphere, above a large tree in our yard.

Several stars were visible in that part of the sky.

I was pleased to have seen such a beautiful and rare sight.

Standing out at night, looking at the vastness of space, I sometimes feel uncomfortably small.

I am a tiny speck; a miniscule part of creation.

Yet, there is something different about me and all other people.

We are God’s chosen creation.

For us, He sent Jesus.

God listens to my prayer—the prayer of a tiny speck among the vastness.

I am important because He is my Father and I am His child.

You are important, too, in just the same way.

It is amazing to consider all that God has done.

A saving relationship is available with the Creator of the universe.

We need only to turn to Him to recieve it, accepting the sacrifice of His Son.

How excellent is God’s Name in all the Earth!

 

When I consider Your heavens, the work of Your fingers,
The moon and the stars, which You have ordained,
 What is man that You are mindful of him,
And the son of man that You visit him?
 For You have made him a little lower than the angels,
And You have crowned him with glory and honor.

 You have made him to have dominion over the works of Your hands;
You have put all things under his feet,
 All sheep and oxen—
Even the beasts of the field,
 The birds of the air,
And the fish of the sea
That pass through the paths of the seas.

 O Lord, our Lord,
How excellent is Your name in all the earth!

—Psalm 8:3-9

    Don’t grieve God. Don’t break his heart. His Holy Spirit, moving and breathing in you, is the most intimate part of your life, making you fit for himself. Don’t take such a gift for granted.
