Summer in Psalms Interactive Bible Study – June 8

This Bible study in Psalms is intended to be interactive, as a stepping stone from reading God’s Word to journaling with Him. The Discover One Thing ministry focuses on use of the SOAP method of Bible Study (Scripture, Observation, Application, Prayer) during our daily time at the feet of Jesus. To learn more, check out the “What’s SOAP?” tab above. Please read the Psalm below, let God speak to You through it, then post a response in the Comments section on our website’s home page. Your response could be any of the following related to the Psalm: scripture verse that stood out to you, observation, application, prayer, question, prayer request, or response to another’s comment. And check back to see where the conversation leads us! Together we can encourage one another and grow closer to God!

The Book of Psalms contains responses to God by individuals and the community in worship. We pray through this study that all of us will focus on the majesty of God and humble ourselves before Him in worship, no matter our circumstance.

-Becky & Dyea

Psalm 8

For the director of music. According to gittith. A psalm of David.

Lord, our Lord,
    how majestic is your name in all the earth!

You have set your glory
    in the heavens.
Through the praise of children and infants
    you have established a stronghold against 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 mankind that you are mindful of them,
    human beings that you care for them?

You have made them a little lower than the angels
    and crowned them with glory and honor.
You made them rulers over the works of your hands;
    you put everything under their feet:
all flocks and herds,
    and the animals of the wild,
the birds in the sky,
    and the fish in the sea,
    all that swim the paths of the seas.

Lord, our Lord,
    how majestic is your name in all the earth!

  1. This is more like it! Psalm 8 speaks to my heart today! Experiencing so much for the first time through the eyes of my little ones on our vacation–airplane ride, salty ocean water, crocodiles and manatees, authentic Greek food and pastries, etc. God created us to enjoy His creation, and I am so lovin’ it! …as I watch the ducks waddle onto our patio and the sun rise. How majestic is Your name in ALL the earth!

  2. Beck, am I allowed to say, I’m jealous you’re basking in all the greatness as we speak?? (wink)

    Lord, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth!

    We know David has was very small (there are even songs about it), but had been given the task of caring for the sheep. He felt even smaller when he looked into the sky at what God had made.

    As life had presented itself to David and now you and I, we know Satan attempts to stop us from doing jobs or doing them well. Most times feeling small and undefeated,, but good news, Jesus came to put things right and will come to finish it once and for all!!

    – so when I am feeling small or the task at hand is maybe a little overwhelming – God you strengthen me. Only You have true glory…as David was your servant, as am I. What can I do for you??

    Challenge for you – – look into the sky; day or night, bask in it all, even what we can’t see, touch or know and thank Him for that. Ask Him to show you what to do for him. I really challenge you, He will!

  3. I wasn’t even thinking about the service aspect of this psalm. Thank you, Dyea! God has put us in charge of everything He has made on earth and our job is to serve Him not ourselves. And God doesn’t limit what this service looks like, from recycling to feeding the poor to changing my son’s diaper to endless possibilities. God, show me each day how You want me to serve You that day and help me to follow through.
