Psalm 8:9 NIVUK
Lord, our Lord,
    how majestic is your name in all the earth!

Yesterday we thought about our position of power in this world as humans. This is not by right, but is a gift, a gift from God who made the world, who made the universe, whose power is way beyond comparison. We only get to rule because he rules and in his love has chosen us to serve under him in this way. It truly is a privilege. Our rule has a two dimensions – that of caring for creation and pointing to its ultimate King.

Lord, as the universe declares your praise today, may I through my life join in the song of praise, ‘how majestic is your name!’
