“Be exalted, O God, above the heavens! Let your glory be over all the earth!” ~ Psalm 57:5, ESV
It feels like I have always known this scripture: I remember hearing this verse, reading it, reciting it, and singing it, even as a child. It is one of those scriptures that’s just so deeply entrenched in my heart and mind!
Every once in a while when I am by myself, I say these words quietly to God – “Be exalted o God!” just to give God a shout out… Just like saying “Praise God”!
“Be exalted, O God, above the heavens! Let your glory be over all the earth!” (Psalm 57:5, ESV)
What I had never fully realized or noticed prior to today, is that the psalmist (David) wrote these powerful and inspiring words of worship and adoration while he was in the midst of a storm. David actually said these words when he fled from Saul, in the cave.
Let’s take a deeper look at this verse, along with the Bible verses which come right before it:
Psalm 57, ESV
1 Be merciful to me, O God, be merciful to me, for in you my soul takes refuge; in the shadow of your wings I will take refuge, till the storms of destruction pass by.
2 I cry out to God Most High, to God who fulfills his purpose for me.
3 He will send from heaven and save me; he will put to shame him who tramples on me.
God will send out his steadfast love and his faithfulness!
4 My soul is in the midst of lions; I lie down amid fiery beasts – the children of man, whose teeth are spears and arrows, whose tongues are sharp swords.
5 Be exalted, O God, above the heavens! Let your glory be over all the earth! (emphasis mine)
What a beautifully poignant reminder to trust God in the midst of the storm!
