~ Psalm 8 ~ Spiritual Journey From The Beginning To The End of the Psalm ~





~ Psalm 8 ~ Spiritual Journey from the Beginning To The End Of The Psalm ~


The Psalms are an outstanding stupendous collection of vicissitudes! They are a wondrous anthology of heart rendering, astonishing, poignant, emotional heartfelt expressions! Here we can be encouraged and strengthened to move onward and forward in our walk with the Lord! If you have not already begun to walk with the Lord now is the perfect time to start!



No doubt with everything going on in the world it should be evident that the time of the Lord’s return is nigh!


David composed these brilliant magnificent Psalms thousands of years ago. Yet, we today in this 21st century as well are still able to reap its marvelous benefits! The Lord’s Word is powerful! He does not want anyone to be unaware! Ask the Lord to open your spiritual eyes so you can begin to see all that He has before you. David was a man that truly loved the Lord through him we can see the significant difference it made having the Lord in His life!



We can be assured that in the Lord’s time He will bring about justice and fairness! Here you can learn that the Lord’s Love has a depth that the human mind cannot totally fathom! It is endless and immeasurable!


The Lord truly Loves us because He is Love!


If you have ever wondered about the Supremacy of the LORD camp right here in Psalm 8! Above the LORD there is none greater! Here David expresses the greatness of God and assures us of how much the Lord values His people above all He has made!


This world, cosmos universe at large was spoken into existence through His Son JESUS CHRIST! Jesus Christ is the Word of the Lord! He is the mediator between mankind and God! And God said, let there be light and there was light. God saw that the light was good and separated it from the darkness. God called the light day and the darkness He called night. And there was evening and there was morning and this is the first day.” Genesis 1. How can this be?



Everything was spoken into existence through Jesus Christ! He was fully God and became fully man! He alone was sinless! He came to deliver us from the power of sin reigning in our lives! He overcame darkness so we could live and walk in the Light! John 1 further teaches us, “In the beginning was the WORD, and the WORD was with GOD, and the WORD was God. He was with GOD in the beginning. Through HIM ALL THINGS were made; without HIM nothing was made that has been made. In HIM was the LIFE, and that LIFE was the LIGHT of men. The LIGHT shines in the darkness, but the darkness has not understood it.” John 1. PRAISE GOD!



The Word is God expressing Himself to us! The Word became sinless flesh!


The carnal mind cannot conceive nor does it embrace the things of God! As believers we need His Holy Spirit to better understand the things of God! It is through Him we can experience the mind of Christ! This is why we must seek Him above all else to better understand how to better navigate through this maze of life. The darkness cloaks itself in so many ways and wants to deceive, divide, derail and entrap you. It wants us to stumble and pull us away from what is right. Off the Narrow Road onto the broad way that leads to destruction! This has been the case from the beginning of time… Jesus Christ overcame sin in the flesh for us! Jesus Christ came that we might live life a better way!Let this mind be in you that was also in Christ Jesus...” Philippians 2.



It is through FAITH we are able to understand and comprehend the things of God! “Now Faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we DO NOT see. This is what the ancients were commended for. By FAITH we understand that the universe was formed at GOD’S command, so that what is seen was not made of what is visible,” Hebrews 11. Through Faith and belief in the LORD and HIS WORD through Jesus Christ we can be certain that He is Sovereign! Upon the profession of our FAITH we are given the gift of His precious Holy Spirit!


His Holy Spirit abides within us as believers! He is our Comforter, and internal Teacher & Counselor! It is of the utmost importance that we spend time getting to KNOW the Lord and His WORD! Spending time with the Lord is crucial! Again, there is much in the world to pull you away from drawing closer to the Lord! This is why we must ask daily for the LORD to fill us with His Holy Spirit! “And I will ask the Father, and HE will give you another Counselor to be with you forever - The Spirit of TRUTH. The world cannot accept Him, because He neither sees HIM nor knows HIM, but you KNOW HIM, for He lives in you and will be in you. I will not leave you as orphans; I WILL COME to you.” John 14. God has not left us alone! He is FAITHFUL!



The LORD KNOWS who belongs to Him! He KNOWS exactly where, you, I and everyone else is! He is Omnipresent, meaning everywhere. He knows what has happened, what is happening and what will happen. He is Omniscient, meaning all knowing! The Lord is powerful there is none or nothing greater! He is Omnipotent! He Is Sovereign and has complete, total unlimited power and authority over the universe! We can be totally confident in the Lord and His Divine and Holy Word! The Lord can fill you with His Holy Spirit and give you His Peace! We can call upon the Name of the Lord anywhere and at anytime! He is outstanding and His Light is magnificent!O LORD our LORD how excellent is Your Name in ALL the earth!”



Believing that the Lord is the Creator of the universe is a challenging subject for some. Their mind finds it difficult to conceive this to be true! They have not discovered the pathway to FAITH! “Without FAITH it is impossible to please God! Because anyone who comes to Him must believe that He EXISTS and that He rewards those who earnestly seek Him.” Hebrews 11. NEVER let anyone make you doubt the LORD!



God called this universe into existence! Did you know that there are over one billion other galaxies like ours within the universe? According to some scientist there are as many stars in the sky as there are grains of sand… Man has traveled to the moon and back! Airplanes fly across His sky every day. Ships sail upon His seas! Trains and cars ride across His earth… Modern technology has advanced to the degree that we can now communicate all over the world with one another through wireless connections that we cannot see in a matter of seconds… All these things give us a glimpse into the supreme sovereign power of the Lord. Our little finite minds cannot totally conceive God and His immeasurable infiniteness it is beyond the parameters of our minds! "With GOD ALL things are Possible!" Matthew 19.


Whatever our little finite minds can possibly conceive of the LORD, He is still so much greater! He is the Great “I AM!” Before creation the earth was formless. He is the Alpha & Omega meaning the Beginning & the End! Here in this Psalm we give HONOR and GLORY to the LORD! We worship, praise, thank and adore Him for all He is! We magnify His precious Holy Name! We thank and praise Him for His Love,grace and mercy towards us!




Book of Praise Lesson Highlights

BOOK 1

God’s GLORY and Man’s Dominion

Theme: The greatness of God assures the worth of mankind. God, all powerful Creator, cares for His most valuable creation - people.

The 2nd of seven “penitential” Psalms

Author: King David


Awesome is a word I reserve when I speak only of Him! There is nothing or no one more magnificent or ostentatious than the Lord! Whatever word, syntax, language or definition you can think of He is so much more! His Name commands and demands the greatest honor that can ever be bestowed! Jesus is God personified in sacred sinless flesh He alone is the only one that perfectly and completely reflects His image!

“O LORD our LORD, how majestic is Your Name in all the earth!”


When we look at God and then ourselves we are so very infinitesimally small! Yet, He Loves us! In the eyes of the Lord we are His children. He is the ultimate Father! He loves us so that He allowed Jesus to come from heaven and make way the Narrow Path that leads to Him! Jesus is the only Door to the Father! He loves us so that He allowed Him to sacrifice His life for us on the cross! It is through the measure of FAITH that He instills within each us that we are able to believe! It is through exercising our belief in Him we draw closer to Him and learn to Trust Him!


As we look all about us we can see the Lord's handiwork! We too are also a part of His handiwork! “The earth is the Lord’s and everything in it the world and all that live in it.” Psalms 24. We are but only stewards of the people, places or things He allows in our lives! When we think of God it is important to remember that He puts us above everything He has created! Just, look around and see all the glorious natural wonders He has created! He loves us more! He even allowed everything to be destroyed and give mankind a chance to start all over again! It was only Noah, his family and all the animals aboard the ark that were spared! However mankind in general has once again denied to acknowledge Him as Lord!


Each day is a gift from Him! When we think of ourselves from God’s perspective we can have humble confidence knowing that we matter to Him! We are valuable to Him!

“When I consider Your heavens, the work of Your fingers, the moon and the stars, which You have set in place, what is man that You are mindful of him?


The Lord knows everything that has taken place in all of our lives. Here we can see here in His Word that we matter to HIM. His Word is like no other it is living! It is “Alive & Powerful!” All His Word is true! Whatever has happened in your life that is unfavorable please do not let it define who you are! The Blood of Jesus can cleanse you from any and all unrighteousness! His death on the Christ means “New Life” for those who believe and accept Him as Lord & Savior! Know that God has a plan and a purpose just for you!


The carnal mind does not readily receive the Word of God! Thank God for His Holy Spirit! We can now spiritually posture ourselves and draw closer to Him daily in order to better hear Him and understand His Word! Always remember; we can boldly yet humbly call on the Lord at anytime, in any situation, wherever we are! You are important to the LORD!

“What is man that you are mindful of him, the Son of man that you care for Him? You made him a little lower than the heavenly beings and crowned him with glory and honor.” Praise GOD!


This Psalm concludes saying: “O LORD, our LORD how majestic is Your Name in ALL the earth!”

How blessed we are to be recipients of God's blessed assurance of our importance to Him. No Christian should have a self-esteem problem.

Voted up and beautiful. A wonderfully written and inspiring word from the Psalm. All glory to God!

Love, peace and joy in Him,

Beautiful, Beautiful, Beautiful DeBorrah!

I too voted this UP and Beautiful! Your words brought tears to my eyes. So much truth written here and so much love expressed in the words! How blessed we are to have received the Light of Christ into our hearts and our lives.

And you are so right about the darkness of this world--how it cloaks itself in so many varied ways. The darkness seems to be intensifying with each passing day. It presents a Spiritual fight for us, but as your reminded us, we are well-able to overcome through God, as we call out to Him in prayer, and by Faith we can receive the Holy Spirit to guide us and strengthen us on the narrow path we walk as Christians.

So many vital points you have covered here! This is a truly uplifting hub, a perfect way to start my day! Thanks for sharing it DeBorrah!

Amen DeBorrah. The vastness of space, a sight that is with us day and night, should serve to remind us of just how small and vulnerable we are - and yet - the Creator still visits with us, the Creator still finds some reason to have hope in us, that we will learn His ways, trust His ways, and walk in His ways. How excellent is His Name - Yahweh! Praise Ye Yah! Peace

"we must seek Him above all else to better understand how to better navigate through this maze of life"...so true

I loved the declarations of His greatness in your writing and reflection of this Psalm.

I love His Word. It never grows old. It is always significant and relevant.

All of creation declares that He is.

Blessed by your expounding upon this portion of scripture.

RevLady, JESUS CHRIST dying on the cross for the sins of world is the most invaluable gift to mankind! When we accept Him as our LORD and Savior it also means that much spiritual warfare will come up against us to attempt to derail and or discourage us… Therefore each day we must learn to seek His will and His way for our lives. We remain “in the world but not of the world.” When He is our focus “He will Keep us in HIS perfect Peace!

As you so wonderfully stated:” How blessed we are to be recipients of God's blessed assurance of our importance to Him. No Christian should have a self-esteem problem>” AMEN! & AMEN!! In Him alone we each can find our true Security & Significance! Praise GOD!

What is the whole duty of man? “To act justly and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with your GOD!” Micah 6.

Thank you for sharing, In HIS Love, Grace, Joy, Peace & Blessings!

TO GOD BE THE GLORY HONOR & PRAISE!

exjwLaurie, Praise GOD! We are on one accord! It is beautiful when we are touched so deeply by the goodness of the LORD! His presence in our lives is something that we should never take for granted! As we look around this world it is becoming increasingly clear that the Lord is speaking! However as believers we can be assured as we see the Lord’s Word being fulfilled! Praise GOD from whom all blessings flow...

As you so beautifully stated;” It presents a Spiritual fight for us, but as your reminded us, we are well-able to overcome through God, as we call out to Him in prayer, and by Faith we can receive the Holy Spirit to guide us and strengthen us on the narrow path we walk as Christians.” Amen & AMEN!! Praise GOD!

We can be thankful that by His Grace & Mercy, He has given us His precious Holy Spirit and opened our spiritual eyes so we can remain on the narrow path that leads to HIM!

Thank you for sharing your spiritual insight! In HIS Love, Grace, Joy, Peace & Blessings! GOD BLESS YOU!

As infinitesimally small as we are, He Loves Us. Now that is amazing.

Yes, indeed that is a point to ponder.

As you say "Each day is a gift from Him!"

Amen! Now what are we going to do with it? Something to further His purposes I hope.

I sure enjoy these prophetic messages you publish. Thank you for having such a true and loving heart.

I love the clarity that you have given to having a relationship with the Creator. It is definitely a good read for anyone who might be searching and definitely all truth.

I too love the Psalms as when you really dig into the meaning and hear the heart of the various Psalmists, one can become so better acquainted with God, His nature, His character and His love for His creation.

God bless as you continue to share with others.

"You have made them a little lower than the angels and crowned them with glory and honor."

There is a reason for us to praise God. That is why David starts and ends the Psalms with the same praise of God's name

"LORD, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth!"

Praise LORD, for the book of Psalms speaks volumes to all its readers. Once you start reading the Psalms it's very difficult to stop. Whatever you are looking for you can find in the Psalms. Hallelujah is the Greatest Praise that you give to the LORD! I thank the LORD for the shepard boy David allowing the great IAM to use it him.
