Psalm 8 (CEV)

(A psalm by David for the music leader.)

The Wonderful Name of the Lord

Our Lord and Ruler,
    your name is wonderful
    everywhere on earth!
You let your glory be seen
    in the heavens above.
With praises from children
and from tiny infants,
    you have built a fortress.
It makes your enemies silent,
    and all who turn against you
    are left speechless.

I often think of the heavens
    your hands have made,
    and of the moon and stars
    you put in place.
Then I ask, “Why do you care
    about us humans?
    Why are you concerned
    for us weaklings?”
You made us a little lower
    than you yourself,
    and you have crowned us
    with glory and honor.

You let us rule everything
    your hands have made.
And you put all of it
    under our power—
    the sheep and the cattle,
    and every wild animal,
    the birds in the sky,
the fish in the sea,
    and all ocean creatures.

Our Lord and Ruler,
    your name is wonderful
    everywhere on earth!

God has done some awesome things.  He is mighty and majestic.  He has created the entire universe – and yet he knows and cares about little old me.

I don’t know about you, but I find that mind-blowing and humbling – and I can’t help but come in wonder and praise that God should love me amongst all the other things he has to do.  But that is how important I am to him.

He cares about and loves you.  You are important to him.
