Divine Majesty
Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.
I love this time of year when the corn and beans are popping up and the fields are quickly turning green. With all the rain and hot weather, it is like magic how quickly the black dirt is turning to a sea of green.
I am reminded of one of my favorite scriptures. Psalm 8 (selected verses):
1 Lord, our Lord,
    how majestic is your name in all the earth!
You have set your glory
    in the heavens.
3 When I consider your heavens,
    the work of your fingers,
the moon and the stars,
    which you have set in place,
4 what is mankind that you are mindful of them,
    human beings that you care for them?
When I see the new growth of spring, I am mindful of God’s creation. One only needs to experience a beautiful sunrise or sunset or view the latest full moon, (or the greening of the fields). Amazing!
I know the farmers have struggled with planting this spring, what with the weather delays, wet ground and equipment failures, yet they have accomplished so much. They know God’s creation and what needs to be done and they do it. They keep faithful to God’s will for creation. They provide food for the world and care for God’s creation. Thank you to God’s farmers!
And we God’s people are humbled that God cares for us!
Lord, our Lord,
    how majestic is your name in all the earth!
