thought for the day

Psalm 8

Lord, our Lord how majestic is your name in all the earth….what are mere mortals that you are mindful of them, human beings that you care for them…You have made them a little lower than the heavenly beings and crowned them with glory and honour. You made them rulers over the works of your hands.

How often do I forget who I am in Christ. Who I am in the eyes of my creator. Not only has He crowned us with glory and honour but He also makes us rulers over the works not of our own doing but His. He entrusts His work to us and our ruling. Lord give me wisdom to rule in Your words over my boys who in the midst of their tantrums and whining and disobedience are crowned with Your glory and honour and have a role to play in Your creation too. Let me not forget who they and Mark and I are in the eyes of You who created us. Let me look at their hearts and the identity You give them and not stop at the surface outside.
