Psalms 8 (Part 6)- Digging Deep by Pastor Joshua Olaleye
TOPIC: PSALM 8 (PART 6)
Text: Psalms 8:6-9
In the last few studies, we have been studying Psalm 8 in details learning about our God whose Name is Excellent. We have learnt about His greatness, His awesome power and His love for the dust to the earth called man. We have discovered that even angels, as powerful as they are, relegated to the background while God in His infinite wisdom exalt man. Now, we want to conclude our series on Psalms 8 as we look at the last four verses together.
1. God created a lot of things and in great numbers too. And there are quite some giants among them too, living on land and sea. Notable among these giants are the behemoths and leviathans. God made them all in different sizes and shapes in His infinite wisdom and supplies all their needs in His infinite providence. Finally, He created man in His own image to oversee all His creatures and to rule over them. To make the assignment easy, God puts the fear of man in every creature so that man can take any animal. But man, who God call a “god” lost his highly exalted position when he sinned – Genesis 1:20 -25, Job 40:15-24, Job 41:1-7, Psalms 104;24-27, Genesis 1:26-28, Genesis 9:2, James 3:7, I Corinthians 11:7, James 3:9, Matt 6:20, Psalms 82:6-7.
2. However, the great love of God for man persists so that he sent Christ to redeem us. Through Christ the dominion that man lost has been regained so that no power is great enough to defeat us now. Today, Jesus Christ backs every believer with an awesome power the total power in the universe since Christ Himself is seated on the right hand of the power of God, we can claim that we have a friend in the highest office in the universe. And that friend is the Lord of both the living and the dead, including “non-living” things as well. Now, since Christ is our Brother, we being children of the same Father, whatever Christ has belongs to us because we are part and parcel of Him, even of His flesh and bones – Hebrew 1:1-4, John 17:23, Romans 8:38-39, Mathew 28:18-20, Genesis 28:15, Exodus 33:14, Hebrew 2:8-12, Deuteronomy 20:1, Mathew 18:20,Psalms 110:1, John 3:31,Romans 14:9, Genesis 28:15, Colossians 1:8, Mathew 8:27, Romans 7:4, I Corinthians 6:15, I John 2:24, Ephesians 5:30.
3. So now we have God the Father as the head of all things, The Lord Jesus Christ is at His right hand and all believers as the body of Christ with all else at our feet. Now, there are many questions that man, in His own wisdom, can never answer. For example; who is the Father of the rain or the Mother of the dew? But God has the answer to all these questions and many more. Infacts it is possible to know all the details about God but believers should rejoice nonetheless. This is because since there is none more blessing than the people of God. No wonder we should just keep on blessing that excellent Name, JESUS – I Cor. 15:23 -28, Ephesians 1:19 -22, Job 38:28-41, Job 39:1-5, Job 11:7-9, 5:9, Eccl. 3:11,
I Corinthians 2:16, Deuteronomy 22: 26-29.
