Reflections: Let Your Thoughts Consider His Works
One day, I was having a really bad time at work. Everything was going wrong and I was completely overwhelmed and ready to quit. The slimy pit was up to my eyeballs! So, I decided to go for a walk; getting out of the office would help me get out of the mess. But as I walked out the front doors and into the park, the overwhelming thoughts came on the walk with me. They were on repeat in my head until I was rudely interrupted. An older lady walked straight up to me and said, “Isn’t that tree just gorgeous! When I consider the work of his fingers, I can’t help but praise!” It slapped me in the face and made me realise that Creation was crying out all around me as I walked in this beautiful park, yet my thoughts were still in the mud. Psalm 8 is calling you out of where you currently are to turn your thoughts onto the greatness of our God. Let the Heavens, the work of his hands: the moon, the stars, creation and the trees show you how majestic our God is.
Questions: How will you take this reminder from Psalm 8 to help you live above ‘the mess’ today?
Prayers: As I remember this verse, I pray that you, God, would wash my thinking of the mud and open my eyes to see the work of your hands, Creation, the stars, the moon and let my mind be set upon how amazing and majestic you are.
