Psalm 8:1–4 (NLT)
1 O Lord, our Lord, your majestic name fills the earth! Your glory is higher than the heavens . . . 3 When I look at the night sky and see the work of your fingers— the moon and the stars you set in place— 4 what are mere mortals that you should think about them, human beings that you should care for them?
Matthew 6:8 . . . for your Father knows exactly what you need even before you ask him!
Psalm 40:5 . . . O Lord my God, you have performed many wonders for us. Your plans for us are too numerous to list. You have no equal. If I tried to recite all your wonderful deeds, I would never come to the end of them.
Psalm 115:12–13 . . . The Lord remembers us and will bless us . . . He will bless those who fear the Lord, both great and lowly.
O Lord, Our Lord, How majestic is your name in all the earth. You are the glorious One, your glory is higher than the heavens. When we look at the work of your hands, we are in awe that you would even think about us. What are we compared to all that you have created. Yet you made us in Your image, you crowned us with glory & honor among your creation. And you gave us dominion over your creation on your behalf.
Still we think, because you are so majestic, that you are far out there somewhere, too big to know or care. But you are also our Abba Father, and you know what we need even before we ask. And not only do you know, but you have done so many great things for us that we aren’t even aware of. Just as a good earthly father does for his children. We don’t know what tomorrow holds, but your plans for us are too numerous to list. We could never grasp all you’ve done for us, or all you have planned for us, or all your thoughts toward us. Your thoughts & your plans for us never end.
You have not forgotten us Lord, and you never will. You will bless those who fear you, no matter our station in life. Our blessings come, not in the status of this life, but in knowing and fearing you. Thank you Father. I love you. Amen.
