Psalms 8:9 O LORD our Lord, how excellent is thy name in all the earth!

Too often people don’t slow down enough to even consider God. They know the Creator exists, but they don’t move Him to the front of their minds for special consideration.  The Psalmist did, and when he did, he came away with this wonderful thought recorded in this special verse of Scripture.  Do you notice that he is not asking a question?  He is not trying to find out how excellent God’s name is.  He is making an exclamation.  He moved the Lord to the forefront of his mind and it came to Him that the Lords name is excellent in all of the earth.

We too can see the excellence of God.  We too can be overwhelmed with the excellence of God in His name.  All we have to do is take a moment and move Him to the forefront of our minds.
