God Alone Is Worthy

Psalms 8

O LORD, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth!
You have set your glory above the heavens.
From the lips of children and infants you have ordained praise because of your enemies, to silence the foe and the avenger.
When I consider your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have set in place, what is man that you are mindful of him, the son of man that you care for him?
You made him a little lower than the heavenly beings and crowned him with glory and honour. You made him ruler over the works of your hands; you put everything under his feet: all flocks and herds, and the beasts of the field, the birds of the air, and the fish of the sea, all that swim the paths of the seas.
O LORD, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth!

God alone is worthy of worship for His works are so majestic without peer.

Consider the infinite micro universe with atoms and molecules expanding all the way to the infinite macro universe of galaxies of stars with His laws setting in motion everything we can see. Consider the beauty and wonder in His creation of organisms, plants, insects and animals with His laws guiding all to depend on each other in harmony. Consider the delicate eco-system working in perfect order for all life to survive. How majestic are His works !

God alone is worthy of worship for He is holy without peer.

Consider how we look at pests in our environment which we are ever so ready to annihilate and we can perhaps understand a little of His absolute abhorrence of our sin. Consider how abhorrent we are – not even a speck of dust as compared to the whole universe – and yet we believe we can be like god. We are nothing but pests destroying the sanctity of His holy and beautiful created world.

God alone is worthy of worship for His love without peer.

Consider how incorrigible it is for a wayward self scented creature to believe he can replace the Creator in control of his own destiny. Yet this Sovereign Creator God is willing to incarnate and propitiate Himself to reveal Himself as the Truth, the Way and the Life for His creation.

God alone is worthy of worship for His grace without peer.

Consider what do we, creatures, deserve such honor and love from our Creator ? Nothing. Absolutely nothing ! And yet He is willing to make us sons and joint heirs of His Kingdom with His only Begotten Son.

Let’s exalt His Wonderful and Holy Name for all eternity !
