Looking for God in Nature | 02

AUTHOR: Holy Scripture

READ:

Read or listen to Psalm 8.

For the choir director: on the Gittith. A psalm of David.

Lord, our Lord,

how magnificent is your name throughout the earth!
You have covered the heavens with your majesty.
From the mouths of infants and nursing babies,
you have established a stronghold
on account of your adversaries
in order to silence the enemy and the avenger.

When I observe your heavens,
the work of your fingers,
the moon and the stars,
which you set in place,
what is a human being that you remember him,
a son of man that you look after him?
You made him little less than God
and crowned him with glory and honor.
You made him ruler over the works of your hands;
you put everything under his feet:
all the sheep and oxen,
as well as the animals in the wild,
the birds of the sky,
and the fish of the sea
that pass through the currents of the seas.

Lord, our Lord,
how magnificent is your name throughout the earth

How does the psalmist’s careful observation of creation help him communicate who God is and what he does?

The written Scripture is CSB, however, the audio Scripture is ESV.

LISTEN:

Listen to the corresponding EveryPsalm by Poor Bishop Hooper.

FOCUS:

Look out your window. What do you see? What does it say about God?

PRAY:

What stood out to you in the psalm you read? Use that part of the psalm as a prayer.
