May 10th – Psalm 8:1

Psalm 8:1

Did you know that psalm 8 was the first Biblical text to reach the moon? It traveled into space on Apollo 11 on a disc that had messages from seventy-three countries. It was included in a text submitted by the Vatican. The disc now rests in an aluminum case on the Moon’s Sea of Tranquility. Psalm 8 is a beautiful expression of worship to God. And a wonderful description of the power of His majestic work in creation. Everything about God is magnificent, praiseworthy, and perfect. And in comparison we are but a speck in this vastness of the cosmos. Yet the Creator of the universe places His love and unwavering attention on us. His love so great, God gave us dominion over all of His creation, and sent His only Son to redeem us!
