When I consider Your heavens, the work of Your fingers… (Psalm 8:3).
David starts and ends this psalm with the same phrase: O Lord, our Lord, how excellent is Your name in all the earth! In the middle, David marvels at the diversity and beauty of God’s creation. David observes…
- the blue skies
- the wide-eyed wonder of children
- the moon and stars
- the marvel of man
- the flocks and herds of the field
- the birds in the air
- the fish in the seas
David takes nothing for granted. He observes, he sees God, and then he worships God as Creator. David’s constant cycle is—observation and contemplation which leads to adoration.
A mark of a godly leader is one who is continually learning about his Creator.
Don’t ever stop observing; don’t ever stop learning. Become a lifelong learner, and let your contemplation lead you to adoration of our excellent Lord and Creator!
