Amidst The Stress And Tension Of Lockdown These Words Can Be A Breath of Fresh Air – And Strength

These opening phrases of Psalm 8 are like a breath of fresh air – fresh reassurance after all we have been through in the past year – and a word of profound comfort, which only the Scriptures can give. They speak specifically to the people of God – to those who are in Christ Jesus. Many would say we have been most irresponsible – and that we have made a mess of what HE CREATED.

He wants to help us – by removing the pollution from our minds – flushing out any poisonous thought from our minds and hearts – as Jesus deals with the greatest of all heart diseases – SIN. What would we do without a real living faith in Christ?
