Psalm 99 Twice in this psalm, we read: “Exalt the Lord our God and worship at His holy hill, for holy is the Lord our God.” To Exalt is to raise high, to elevate. This Hebrew word has the idea of lifting high and can refer to God or man. In this psalm, the writer encourages the reader to lift God high and praise Him highly.
How do you exalt the Lord? Do you do it in word or deed, or prayer? Do you stop and remind yourself that He alone is worthy of all praise and worship? The writer reminds us that God is holy; there is no other like Him. He will not share His glory with another. The prophet Isaiah explained that He who is holy would pour water on parched ground. He will pour His Spirit on the children. [Is 44:3]
Take time today to reflect on God’s holiness and what it means to you personally.
