When I consider your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have set in place, what is mankind that you are mindful of them, human beings that you care for them?
Psalm 8: 3-4
Father, when I consider the vast universe you have created, the sun, the moon, the stars, the sky, the earth, the majestic blue ocean, the earth with its rich vegetation, the deep mysterious forests, the birds, the vast array of animals, what indeed is humanity that you care for us?
Thank you for creating us in your image (Genesis 1:27), and what a wondrous, incomparable image it is, this body, this mind and this soul. Thank you, Lord, for placing us a little lower than the angels (Hebrews 2:7), and yet denying us nothing, and instead elevating us to a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation (1 Peter 2:9), to friends (John 15:15) and to co-heirs of the Kingdom (Romans 8:17).
Thank you, Lord, for the hard times, the lean times, and the mean times because they cause us to wait on you and trust in you. Thank you, Almighty God, for the good times, the joyful times, the bounteous times because they cause us to praise you and testify to your goodness.
And when we feel unworthy Father, remind us yet again, not for what we have done or not done, but for what he has done. This Jesus, loving us, while we were yet sinners, freely giving up his life for us, that we might be reconciled forever to you, through the shedding of his blood, and the forgiveness of our sins.
Receive all the praise, the glory, the honor and the adoration of my heart today, because you alone are worthy; you alone are holy; you alone are God Almighty. Amen.
