Consider Your Crown

Consider Your Crown

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

You have set your glory above the heavens.
Out of the mouths of babes and infants
you have founded a bulwark because of your foes,
    to silence the enemy and the avenger.

When I look at your heavens, the work of your fingers,
    the moon and the stars that you have established;
what are human beings that you are mindful of them,
    mortals that you care for them?

 Yet you have made them a little lower than God,[b]
    and crowned them with glory and honor.

 You have given them dominion over the works of your hands;
    you have put all things under their feet,
all sheep and oxen,
    and also the beasts of the field,
the birds of the air, and the fish of the sea,
    whatever passes along the paths of the seas.

Lord, our Sovereign,
    how majestic is your name in all the earth!             –Psalm 8

 

Reflect: Consider your crown each day this week. You are amazing. God has crowned you with glory and power. And God has called you to something more. What will you do this week with all that you are? Pray and reflect on your potential and God’s call.

Reflect & Practice: Be kind to yourself this week. Consider how amazing you are. Receive the good word that God has uniquely put you together and you are amazing. Love God and love yourself.

Practice: Create a habit this week of pausing to think about all that God has placed within you. Be intentional about reflecting the image of God through your words and actions.
