His Excellent Name

Psalms 8: 1 “O Lord, our Lord, how excellent is your name in all the earth.”

God’s excellent name is known because of His workmanship. In Psalms 8: 5-6, the author said, in effect, “Look to the heavens. See the majesty of God reflected in the planets and the stars. Look at the marvels of the sea and the wonders of the animal world – amazing and wonderful creations from God’s hand that live together in awe-inspiring balance and beauty. And look at man – crowned with glory and honour, made a little lower than the angels, and given all authority over all creation.”

Let us praise God, the one who spoke the heavens into being by the word of His power, the one who keeps the stars and planets spinning on their unseen courses. Let us magnify Him, the one who gives us the mysteries of the oceans, the rugged beauty of the mountains, and the intricate marvels of plant and animal life. Let us all exalt Him, the one who made us and crowned us with glory and honour.

“O Lord, our Lord, how excellent is Your name.”
