Be thou exalted, O God, above the heavens; let thy glory be above all the earth (Psalm 57:5)
Essentially, God’s gracious plan of salvation was wrought to bring about the restoration of a right relationship between men and women and their Creator.
The disobedience and fall of Adam and Eve destroyed the proper Creator-creature relation, in which, unknown to them, their true happiness lay.
Many of us are interested in walking with God and pleasing God and resting in the promises of God. We have discovered that such a life on this earth begins with a complete change in relationship between God and the sinner; a conscious and experienced change affecting the sinner’s whole nature.
The atonement in Jesus’ blood makes such a change judicially possible, and the working of the Holy Spirit makes it emotionally satisfying.
We must begin with God—and God must be the center of all we are and all we do. “Be Thou exalted” is plainly the language of victorious spiritual experience and central to the life of God in the soul!
