The Thanksgiving season is a wonderful time to visit Bible passages that turn our hearts and minds away from our troubled world toward God and His rich blessings. Let us count our blessings and give praise to our Maker and Redeemer.
Psalm 8 (ESV) – O Lord, our Lord, how majestic is Your name in all the earth! You have set your glory above the heavens. 2 Out of the mouth of babies and infants, You have established strength because of your foes, to still the enemy and the avenger. 3 When I look at your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which You have set in place, 4 what is man that You are mindful of him, and the son of man that you care for him? 5 Yet You have made him a little lower than the heavenly beings and crowned him with glory and honor. 6 You have given him dominion over the works of your hands; you have put all things under his feet, 7 all sheep and oxen, and also the beasts of the field, 8 the birds of the heavens, and the fish of the sea, whatever passes along the paths of the seas. 9 O Lord, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth!
There is none above Almighty God. He is majestic (excellent, glorious, awe-inspiring, magnificent, splendid). He is the Creator and Master of ALL that was, is, and ever shall be. As His creation He is mindful of our every need. It is He who has made us and not we ourselves (Psalm 100:3). Today we praise You and glorify You.
Lord, we give You praise! How majestic is Your name in all the earth!!! Thank You Father for all of Your creation and specifically for placing the moon and the stars in the heavens as a reminder of Your majesty and love for us as Your children. Your name is above ALL names. We offer you Thanksgiving Praise for the wonder of the works of Your fingers! Amen and Amen.
