Glory & Majesty

When I think of glory and majesty, I think of God. He is the one crowned with glory and majesty! He is the only One worthy of any glory or majesty. This is true, but as I was reading today, I found this little gem.

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 8:4-5

I thought how neat! We often speak of how God won’t share His glory with another. True, yet He shines His glory through man!!! He shines in us in the way He created man (Gen. 1:27), in man’s role upon the earth (Psalm 8:6-8), and more! And this revelation makes me want to sing (or maybe shout) with the psalmist, “O LORD, our Lord, How majestic is Your name in all the earth!” (Psalm 8:9)
