Psalm 46:10

Psalm 46:10…”He says, ‘Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.’” All our pride, worries, concerns, stress, selfish motives, and fear in this life are put to rest if we believe this verse is true. If we really believe God is sovereign, and if we fight to have an eternal perspective, then we’ll enjoy Him and His dealings with us, regardless of our circumstances. He will be exalted, even if we can’t see that clearly now. Jesus will return, and He will reign, and sin and death will be no more for His people. We need to spend more time being still, and reflecting on God’s sovereignty. We need to meditate on His holiness in order to better understand our sinfulness. We need to reflect on the great chasm that exists between our utter sinfulness, and His perfect holiness, so we’ll esteem Jesus more. We need to rest in His love, which was set on us before He created the world. We need to grow in holiness to have assurance that we are His, and to show the world what He’s like. Ephesians 1:4-10 describes how God will be exalted among the nations through His plan of salvation:

“For he chose us in him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in his sight. In love he predestined us for adoption to sonship through Jesus Christ, in accordance with his pleasure and will – to the praise of his glorious grace, which he has freely given us in the One he loves. In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God’s grace that he lavished on us. With all wisdom and understanding, he made known to us the mystery of his will according to his good pleasure, which he purposed in Christ, to be put into effect when the times reach their fulfilment – to bring unity to all things in heaven and on earth under Christ.”
