REJOICE!

March 12, 2017

As David is singing the song below, I imagine him on a high mountain... 
From there he can see the city and the people on one side;
on the other side he sees valleys, trees, pasture and sheep.
He is reflecting upon his life, his battles, his sin, his victories, his calling...
He is in awe of God!
His love, His creation, His goodness, His protection.
David feels unworthy of it all...
So he can't help but to simply sing a song of praise to the ONE to whom praise is due.
 
Today is the second Sunday of our season of Lent.
If you recall, Sundays are mini-Easters. The resurrected King is worthy of our praise!
So I encourage you today to do like David. If you don't have a mountain to climb onto and observe God's creation, feel free to go outside, see the birds, the trees, the flowers, the clouds, the stars, or the beauty in people. Take time to reflect on how good and faithful God has been to you. And sing along with David.
 
Psalm 8
For the director of music. According to gittith. A psalm of David.

 

1 Oh 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?

5 You have made them a little lower than the angels
    and crowned them with glory and honor.
6 You made them rulers over the works of your hands;
    you put everything under their 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 Oh Lord, our Lord,
    how majestic is your name in all the earth!
