Works of Your Hands

"O LORD, our/my 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's me/you!) that you care for him?  You made him a little lower than the heavenly beings and crowned him with glory and honor.  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."  (Psalm 8)

Thank you God, that you made me/us "in the image of God," Your image!!  Wow! (Genesis 1:26) I'm specially equipped in body, soul, and spirit to know and be known by You. You made it possible to have the kind of fellowship with me/man that You have with nothing and no one else. Unfortunately Satan did and does not like that....thus our fall and separation from You God. Thankfully it doesn't end there!! Jesus dealt the devil a blow and made a way for me/us to return to our original purpose and freedom in Him!  Sounds unreal doesn't it?  I assure you it is real!
