David Considered the Goodness of God
Psalm 8:3-4 (KJB) When I consider thy heavens, the work of thy fingers, the moon and the stars, which thou hast ordained; 4 What is man, that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man, that thou visitest him?
This starry night, as the shepherd David stared into the sky, he pondered creation and was awed at the magnitude of God and humbled with the insignificance of mankind. It is quite a wonder, indeed, when a person takes a moment to consider the landscape, the creation of humans, the many formed creatures all of which God used in complimenting the beauty of this world.
Did you know that God fashioned humanity solely for completing His will for their life and bringing honor and glory to Him?
God formed the heavens and the horizon to splash this earth with color and to decorate heaven with His eternal honor and glory to Him.
God gave us numerous fascinating creatures for performing specific details of nature and in pointing to Him as Creator.
Ponder for a moment and consider the goodness of God ever present about us on this earth, in the heavens, and forever shining in eternity.
God illustrated and illuminated the palate of this world with beautiful art and life. All of it, including the presence of mankind, is seemingly small in comparison to the glory and honor of God, both here in in eternity.
