REFLECTIONS ON TODAY’S BIBLE VERSE(S):

Quite often, in the book of Psalms, we hear the Psalmist saying things like “Be exalted, O God.” 

If we aren’t careful, we will come to an erroneous conclusion – that the Psalmist is praying that God could improve in some way. Nothing could be further from the truth.

To understand the meaning of phrases such as this, we simply need to realize that the Psalmist is speaking from a human point of view. He desires for God’s infinite greatness to be recognized and praised by more people. God is already infinitely exalted. But, more people need to realize this and worship Him.

How do we help to fulfill the desire of this phrase?

Share the Gospel! It is through the gift of eternal life made possible by Jesus’ death, burial and resurrection on our behalf that people come to know God and enjoy Him.

Do you want God to be more exalted today among the peoples? Then look for someone to tell about Jesus.
