Watermark Community Church

A Journey Through the Psalms and Proverbs

Michael Amlani

Michael Amlani


Hi, everyone! My name is Michael Amlani. I am 28 and a transplant from California.

The foundation of my identity was rocked in 2014 when I walked into Watermark with a failing marriage. Christ was mindful of me and my marriage and began to transform me as I navigated re|engage (Watermark's marriage ministry), Equipped Disciple (discipleship class), and Summit (men's Bible study), where I currently lead. I am thankful that the Lord has restored my marriage and blessed my beautiful wife Kandria and me with our first child, Emilia, in May 2016.

By the way, can someone explain the A&M "whoop?"

Psalm 8

How Majestic Is Your Name

To the choirmaster: according to The Gittith. [1] A Psalm of David.

8:1 O Lord, our Lord,
how majestic is your name in all the earth!
You have set your glory above the heavens.
Out of the mouth of babies and infants,
you have established strength because of your foes,
to still the enemy and the avenger.

When I look at your heavens, the work of your fingers,
the moon and the stars, which you have set in place,
what is man that you are mindful of him,
and the son of man that you care for him?

Yet you have made him a little lower than the heavenly beings [2]
and crowned him with glory and honor.
You have given him dominion over the works of your hands;
you have put all things under his feet,
all sheep and oxen,
and also the beasts of the field,
the birds of the heavens, and the fish of the sea,
whatever passes along the paths of the seas.

O Lord, our Lord,
how majestic is your name in all the earth! (ESV)


[1] 8:1 Probably a musical or liturgical term
[2] 8:5 Or than God; Septuagint than the angels


Psalm 1:2

but his delight is in the law of the Lord,
and on his law he meditates day and night.
