“Exalt the Lord our God”

Today’s devotion comes from Psalm chapter 99.

“The Lord reigns, let the peoples tremble;
He is enthroned above the cherubim, let the earth shake!
2 The Lord is great in Zion,
And He is exalted above all the peoples.
3 Let them praise Your great and awesome name;
Holy is He.
4 The strength of the King loves justice;
You have established equity;
You have executed justice and righteousness in Jacob.
5 Exalt the Lord our God
And worship at His footstool;
Holy is He.

6 Moses and Aaron were among His priests,
And Samuel was among those who called on His name;
They called upon the Lord and He answered them.
7 He spoke to them in the pillar of cloud;
They kept His testimonies
And the statute that He gave them.
8 O Lord our God, You answered them;
You were a forgiving God to them,
And yet an avenger of their evil deeds.
9 Exalt the Lord our God
And worship at His holy hill,
For holy is the Lord our God.”  Psalm chapter 99.

“The Lord reigns, let the peoples tremble …”  Verse 1.

“The Lord is great in Zion,
And He is exalted above all the peoples.”  Verse 2.

“The strength of the King loves justice;
You have established equity;
You have executed justice and righteousness in Jacob.”  Verse 4.

“Exalt the Lord our God
And worship at His footstool;
Holy is He.”  Verse 5.

Which doctrine exalts God more?

Other doctrine which is centered on man and man’s alleged free-will?

Or, Reformed Doctrine which is centered on God and what God has done?

“It is good to give thanks to the Lord
And to sing praises to Your name, O Most High;
2 To declare Your lovingkindness in the morning
And Your faithfulness by night,
3 With the ten-stringed lute and with the harp,
With resounding music upon the lyre.
4 For You, O Lord, have made me glad by what You have done,
I will sing for joy at the works of Your hands.”   Psalm 92:1-3.
