Stop For a Minute or Two

I just wanted to share with you today a psalm, one of the early ones in David’s writing, Psalm 8, for a moment or two of worship.  Maybe your day is just beginning, as mine is, and this would be a good time to stop and recognize how much you love Jesus and His Father.  Maybe your day is halfway done and it’s a good time to stop and thank Him for loving you, for walking in front of you and guiding you in your journey.  Maybe your day is coming to an end, and before it does, stop for a minute to praise Him by reading this beautiful psalm that I came upon once again in my preparations to teach Ephesians very soon.

Wherever you are during the day or evening, whatever your life circumstances, I hope and pray that you and Jesus are walking together, that you’re getting to know Him more and more each day.  Please don’t miss these opportunities to stop and breathe and worship Him.


     1      O Lord, our Lord,

How excellent is Your name in all the earth,

Who have set Your glory above the heavens!

2      Out of the mouth of babes and nursing infants

You have ordained strength,

Because of Your enemies,

That You may silence the enemy and the avenger.

3      When I consider Your heavens, the work of Your fingers,

The moon and the stars, which You have ordained,

4      What is man that You are mindful of him,

And the son of man that You visit him?

5      For You have made him a little lower than the angels,

And You have crowned him with glory and honor.

6      You have made him to have dominion over the works of Your hands;

You have put all things under his feet,

7      All sheep and oxen—

Even the beasts of the field,

8      The birds of the air,

And the fish of the sea

That pass through the paths of the seas.

9      O Lord, our Lord,

How excellent is Your name in all the earth!
