March 14: “How Can God Be More Exalted?”

4 Minute Read

Today’s Bible Reading:

Numbers 21:1-22:20
Luke 1:26-56
Psalm 57:1-11
Proverbs 11:9-11

Today’s Bible Verse(s):

Psalm 57:11 (NLT): “Be exalted, O God, above the highest heavens. May your glory shine over all the earth.”

Reflections on Today’s Bible Verse(s):

In the book of Psalms, we often 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. But, nothing could be further from the truth.

To understand what the Psalmist meant, we simply need to realize that he was speaking from a human perspective. He desired 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! Through the gift of eternal life made possible by trusting in Jesus and His death, burial, and resurrection on our behalf, 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.
