Weekend Worship: Stars

O Lord, our Lord,
How majestic is Your name in all the earth,
Who have displayed Your splendor above the heavens!
From the mouth of infants and nursing babes You have established strength
Because of Your adversaries,
To make the enemy and the revengeful cease.

When I consider Your heavens, the work of Your fingers,
The moon and the stars, which You have ordained;
What is man that You take thought of him,
And the son of man that You care for him?
Yet You have made him a little lower than God,
And You crown him with glory and majesty!

— Psalm 8:1-5, NASB
For this mix, I wanted to consider God's creation and our place within it. The glory of the heavens declare God's majesty. Specifically, most of these songs reference the stars and how insignificant we can feel when looking out at them. Abraham's descendents are likened to the stars and we know that anyone who believes is considered a descendent of Abraham. Did you know that God knows the stars by name (Psalm 147:4)? He cares enough to know you too.

Again, if I missed your favorite song on this topic, leave me a comment. I would love to hear about it!
