Psalm 113

Psalm 113 tells us again how to relate to God.  It is written to “you who serve God”.  The psalmist is talking to me and you – to all who call on God as He is.  We are to serve Him but also to have a relationship with Him.  We are told to do these things:

–       “Praise God

–       Speak His name

–       Remember God is a blessing

–       Keep lifting your praises

We see a very common theme about how to relate to God through the Psalms.  He is to be praised and honored and feared.  He is above all else.  Our psalmist makes that clear as he goes on to say “God is higher than anything and anyone, outshining everything…..who can compare with God…..majestically enthroned”.  Are you seeing the truth here?  God is over all things, all people, all power, all possession.  He is in a class all by Himself.  None can compare to our God.

He is “surveying His magnificent heavens and earth”.  God has a very different perspective on the world than we do.  He sees all things from a very different vantage point.  What seems so overwhelming to us is just another small blip in His massive expanse.  That doesn’t mean He doesn’t care, it just means He sees things as they are in His world and is why “He picks up the poor from out of the dirt, rescues the wretched….gives childless couples a family”.  Those are things that overwhelm us but are pretty small potatoes in God’s patch.  He can handle anything that comes along with ease.  We just need to stay in relationship with Him and then make sure we come to Him with all that burdens us so He can step in and carry the load.  Too often we try and do it ourselves when we have a God who is just waiting for the opportunity to show Himself as who He is – our God!  Are you walking and praising and staying in relationship with Him?  If not, He is there ready and waiting to have that happen.
