LOC Bird King

For Faith Art Friday today at Layers of Color  and today's theme is

Great is the Lord

O LORD,our Lord, your greatness is seen in all the world!
Your praise reaches up to the heavens;
it is sung by children and babies.

You are safe and secure from all your enemies;
 you stop anyone who opposes you.
When I look at the sky, which you have made,
 at the moon and the stars, which you set in their places---
 what are human beings, that you think of them;
 mere mortals, that you care for them?

Yet you made them inferior only to yourself;
 you crowned them with glory and honor.
You appointed them rulers over everything you made;
 you placed them over all creation:

Sheep and cattle, and the wild animals too;
the birds and the fish and the creatures in the seas.
O LORD, our Lord, your greatness is seen in all the world! 
Psalm 8:1-9

What a wonderful reminder of the Greatness of God.  Who are we that He is mindful of us - and yet He is!  This amazes me everyday!  One of the things that I am so grateful to God for is that every other religion is mans search for God - but Christianity is not a religion, it is about relationship - that is why God reached down to man -what an amazing reality - how can our hearts respond in any other way than to declare 'How great is our God!!' 

What a wonderful thing that we can come together from all countries and from so many different walks of life and in one voice declare HIS greatness!!
God bless you!
