Moonlight Nights Meditations By Apostle John Dean

What is man, that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man, that thou visitest him?

For thou hast made him a little lower than the angels, and hast crowned him with glory and honour.

Thou madest him to have dominion over the works of thy hands; thou hast put all things under his feet:Psalms 84-6 KJVA

These verses boggle the imagination because it is difficult to think that big. The thought of having dominion over God’s handiwork stretches one’s mind out of its comfort zone. We seem to be a lot more secure in a confined space surrounded with those we know and love. The Bible says in 1Cor 2:9, “Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.”

As a teenager growing up in East Texas in the late 40’s and early 50’s, I worked on a dairy farm.

Like most teenagers, I had a very active imagination. I would often lie in my bed at night after a hard days work and look up at the stars and imagine being there. When the moon was as bright as day I would look up at it and also imagine being there. At other times I would just listen to the sounds of the night; the sounds of crickets, frogs and an occasional lowing of the cows.

The question is, “what is man that thou art mindful of him?” Enjoying the sounds and feelings of the country is no doubt the height of a country boy’s life. However, what is that compared to what God has in store for him? Having dominion over some dairy cows is one thing, but to have dominion over all of God’s handiwork is something else. “What is man that thou art mindful of him; thou has put all things under his feet.”


I thank you for the gift of dreaming and the ability to imagine how things must look that you have prepared for those who love you. Even with my vivid imagination I know it goes way beyond my ability to imagine. However, until the day you call me home I promise to be faithful in living on this earth with the same joy and praising you as if I was already in heaven.
