In Awe of God’s Majesty

Praising God through every breathe I take

by Joanne Troppello

In Psalm 8:1-9, David wrote about God’s majesty. That His name is “excellent in all the earth…and His glory is above the Heavens.” In verse three, David wrote that when he looks to Heaven and the moon and the stars, those are things God has ordained.

Psalm 8:1-9 (NKJV)

O Lord, our Lord, How excellent is Your name in all the earth, Who have set Your glory above the heavens!

2 Out of the mouth of babes and nursing infants You have ordained strength, Because of Your enemies, That You may silence the enemy and the avenger.

When I consider Your heavens, the work of Your fingers, The moon and the stars, which You have ordained, 4 What is man that You are mindful of him, And the son of man that You visit him? 5 For You have made him a little lower than the angels, And You have crowned him with glory and honor.

You have made him to have dominion over the works of Your hands; You have put all things under his feet, 7 All sheep and oxen— Even the beasts of the field, 8 The birds of the air, And the fish of the sea That pass through the paths of the seas.

9 O Lord, our Lord, How excellent is Your name in all the earth!

I love looking to nature to see how beautiful God’s handiwork is. I can understand David’s statement in verse four when he said, “What is man that You are mindful of him…”? I relate. Sometimes, I see God’s beautiful creation and wonder how the God of the universe loves us and sent His Son to die on the cross to save us.

Seeing God’s majesty and praising Him for it is a form of worship. In Job 12:7-10 we read about how seeing God’s creation—beasts, birds, fish, and all the earth—can “teach us and tell us” that God created all of it and every living thing is in God’s capable hands – and the “breath of all mankind”.

Job 12:7-10 (NKJV)

7 “But now ask the beasts, and they will teach you; And the birds of the air, and they will tell you; 8 Or speak to the earth, and it will teach you; And the fish of the sea will explain to you. 9 Who among all these does not know That the hand of the Lord has done this, 10 In whose hand is the life of every living thing, And the breath of all mankind?

I wrote a poem about God’s majesty and wanted to share how His beautiful majesty affects my life when I take the time to see the wonder all around me—in life.

God’s Majesty

Beautiful creation

The stars in the sky shine down from up high.

That proves to me God’s majesty.

The red, red rose always grows.

That proves to me God’s majesty.

The eagle does fly high in the sky.

That proves to me God’s majesty.

The raging sea continues to be.

That proves to me God’s majesty.

The rainbow is still His promise made on a hill.

That proves to me God’s majesty.

The whole earth is full of worth.

That proves to me God’s majesty.
