Psalms 8

Well I am back to my scheduled bible reading in the Psalms as of today. It has been a couple of weeks since I had been in the Psalms I think. I am reading a Psalms a day, or every couple of days depending on the time I spend in each chapter. Although, I have not been reading in the Psalms the last couple of weeks I have been in the bible in other places.

I had it on my mind all day today, to post the song "How Excellent is Thy Name" by Bro. Tom Hayes that he wrote on this Psalms. Well I am not a You Tube video creator and I was hoping someone else would have made a video to this song that I could post. Well I could not find one, so I will just post the scriptures.

Psalms 8
O LORD, our Lord, how excellent is thy name in all the earth! who hast set thy glory above the heavens. Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings hast thou ordained strength because of thine enemies, that thou mightest still the enemy and the avenger. When I consider thy heavens, the work of thy fingers, the moon and the stars, which thou hast ordained; What is man, that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man, that thou visitest him? For thou hast made him a little lower than the angels, and hast crowned him with glory and honour. Thou madest him to have dominion over the works of thy hands; thou hast put all things under his feet: All sheep and oxen, yea, and the beasts of the field; The fowl of the air, and the fish of the sea, and whatsoever passeth through the paths of the seas.O LORD our Lord, how excellent is thy name in all the earth!

I like to read this chapter in the bible from time to time, and dwell on how big God is and how small man is, and I wonder why God would put us into His plan.

In, With, Through Christ
