July 10: Jacob’s Trouble – God’s unique relationship with Israel

God will be exalted!

This Psalm is beloved by both Jews and Gentiles and yet it refers to the time when it appears Israel is on the brink of annihilation.
Note that the word “am” in verse 10 is not in the original Hebrew, but put there by translators (New King James Version).

Be still, and know that I, God,
I will be exalted among the nations,
I will be exalted in the earth!

God is reminding us all that at the end…He will be exalted and no one or nothing will change that truth. He alone is God!

Psalm 46

God is our refuge and strength,
A very present help in trouble.
Therefore we will not fear,
Even though the earth be removed,
And though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea;
Though its waters roar and be troubled,
Though the mountains shake with its swelling. Selah
There is a river whose streams shall make glad the city of God,
The holy place of the tabernacle of the Most High.
God is in the midst of her, she shall not be moved;
God shall help her, just at the break of dawn.
The nations raged, the kingdoms were moved;
He uttered His voice, the earth melted.
The Lord of hosts is with us;
The God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah
Come, behold the works of the Lord,
Who has made desolations in the earth.
He makes wars cease to the end of the earth;
He breaks the bow and cuts the spear in two;
He burns the chariot in the fire.
Be still, and know that I am God;
I will be exalted among the nations,
I will be exalted in the earth!
The Lord of hosts is with us;
The God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah (NKJV)

AMEN and AMEN!
