When You've Been Overlooked
A Study of Psalm 8

One time or another chances are that every one of us is going to feel overlooked, sidelined, helpless, unimportant, of little use, un-needed at one time or another along our journey. 

 
The Psalm 8 will bring comfort in a time of discouragement.  It magnifies the greatness of God and reminds us of the value that he places on each one of us.​


​1. The Call to Worship - v.1


The Psalmist is making it clear that in all the earth, there is no place, there is no one, there is nothing that can so fill our lives with awe and joy like the majesty of God.


​2. Praise - v.1b-2


​The heavens declare the glory of God, the skies proclaim the work of his hands…There is no speech or language where their voice is not heard.

                                                                                                -Psalm 19.1, 3

For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities – his eternal power and divine nature – have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made.

                                                                                                -Romans 1:20

3. The Message - v.3-8


Interesting to note:

The universe is the FINGER-WORK of God.  Salvation is God’s ARM-WORK

-Isaiah 52:10, 53:1, 59:16, Psalm 77:15


​3. The Benediction - v.9


​After considering God’s majesty, our insignificance and God’s powerful grace, David ends the Psalm in the same way that he began it:

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

                                                                                                -Psalm 8:9
