He comes to visit

Re:Verse reading–Psalm 8 (day seven)
“What is man that thou art mindful of him?and the son of man that thou visitest him?” (vs 4–KJV)  When David calculates human worth,  he does not reference accomplishments or bank accounts.  He considers the “visits” of God.  It is the King James translation of the Hebrew word paqad.  The New American Version uses the word “care”.  (Caring for a person= visiting him in his need.  See James 1:27.)  When Jesus promised ” I will not leave you as orphans, I will come to you” (John 14:18), He was continuing a long pattern of God’s love for the human race.  He comes to us!  He visits us!  Can you think back on a time when the Lord came to you in a time of need?  When you experienced the comfort of His guiding presence?  If so, have you reflected on that experience and come to David’s conclusion?  You are loved.  He comes to you in your need.

  1. Well said, my friend, I needed to hear these words. I needed to be reminded that the two friends that came to Bruce and me this afternoon came in the name of our Holy God to bring His love to us.
