Monday’s Moment

O Lord our Lord, how excellent is thy name in all the earth! who hast set thy glory above the heavens (Psalm 8:1).
The opening phrase could be translated: O Jehovah our Master… The name Jehovah could be translated as, the self- existent or eternal, while the name word translated Master carries the idea of owner or controller. Our master, controller, owner is the one and only self-existent God.
The psalmist recognizes the power and greatness in the name of God, because of the power and greatness of God. God is great because He is eternal: God always has been, is today and will always be. God existed before time began and God will continue to exist when time is no more.
God is great because He is all powerful. God created all things; there is nothing that exists that was not created by God; all things exist by the power of God. The Bible records that God spoke the world into existence and it is by His word that the world continues.
God is great because of His love. God created man and God created a way for man to live with Him forever. Man is not an eternal being but God desires man to live with Him eternally. God sacrificed His only begotten Son, so man can live forever; God has prepared a place in Heaven for man and God has made a way, through Christ, for man. How excellent is the name of God!
Today and everyday remember the excellence of God through your faithful obedience.
