Psalm 8:17 NLT

O Lord, our Lord, how majestic and glorious and excellent is Your name in all the earth! You have displayed Your splendor above the heavens.

And there it is. A brilliant crescent on the edge of the horizon. I gasp once again. Each morning as I stare, waiting expectantly, its peeking above the surface leaves me breathless. And I sing, “O Lord, how majestic is Your name in all the earth. O Lord, I praise Your name. O Lord, I magnify Your name. Prince of Peace, Mighty God, O Lord God Almighty!”

No one or anything surpasses the majesty, glory, excellence, and splendor of our God. His glory shouts of His love for us from the mountain tops to the foaming waves on the ocean’s sands. His love for us has no depth, nor height, nor width to measure. All creation proclaims His unconditional, glorious love for us. We but have to glance around us and His majestic love calls to us.

Look at the fledgling sparrow. If His care for the common bird is great, how much more is His love for us. We are created in His image, for His pleasure, for His desire to love us and be loved by us. When we look at one another we should be breathless as we take in His majestic creation. How glorious we view the sunrise, but how much more magnificent are we whom He loves.

Thank You for the splendor and majesty of Your love for us.
