The Lord is Excellent

Posted by Al Hathaway Sunday, January 6, 2013

"Lord, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth! You have set your glory in the heavens. Through the praise of children and infants you have established a stronghold against your enemies, to silence the foe and the avenger. 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? You have made them a little lower than the angels and crowned them with glory and honor. You made them rulers over the works of your hands; you put everything under their feet: all flocks and herds, and the animals of the wild, the birds in the sky, and the fish in the sea, all that swim in the oaths of the seas. Lord, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth!"
Psalm 8:1-9 (NIV)

God's excellence is in contrast to man's deficiency. God's immortality is in contrast to man's morality. God's power is in contrast to man's weakness. God's love is in contrast to man's apathy. God's compassion is in contrast to man's hardheartedness.

With all of man's inconsistencies, God still has a special place for you. He made you with a spark of divinity within you. He formed you out of heavenly matter. You are wonderfully made. God made you.

From that understanding God is due all glory, honor and praise. Our God is excellent!
