Sometimes, in the God loves everyone frenzy of the moment, we forget that our God is majestic, awe-inspiring, totally indescribable.
This psalm reminds us that He is stronger that the sea whose roaring waves speak of his might and power. The vast sweep of the ocean reminds us of His infinite power and majesty.
The psalms have told us that all of nature speaks forth his sovereignty. We saw it in the lightning and storm. We heard about it in the voice of the heavens.
And in Psalm 8, the psalmist says "What is man, that thou art mindful of him?" What, indeed, can the creator of the universe want with us? He is regal; we are ordinary. He is powerful; we are puny. He is all knowing; we struggle along with guesses, hints, and gut reactions.
What can we do but stand in complete awe?
Through Your son, Jesus, You have invited us into fellowship with You. Help us never to forget that while You have deigned to come to us, You are still the Master and Creator of the Universe.
In Jesus' most precious name.
