Creator: Day Four

The Creator’s glory is all around us. We can see it in the sunrise and hear it in the laughter of a child. The psalmist reminds us that children and infants ordain God’s praise. Their simple faith recognizes His goodness. Jesus said, “…whoever doesn’t welcome God’s kingdom like a child will never enter it”. (Mark 10:15 CEB)

Read Psalm 8 below.

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?[c]

You have made them[d] a little lower than the angels[e]
    and crowned them[f] with glory and honor.

You made them rulers over the works of your hands;
    you put everything under their[g] 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 the paths of the seas.

Lord, our Lord,
    how majestic is your name in all the earth!
