Today we read Psalm 89 in our Spoken Word Bible Reading Plan. I love the exaltation of our great GOD in this Psalm! This is called a "didactic" Psalm. Didactic simply means to instruct, educate, teach, inform. Look at some of my favorite verses:

Psalm 89

A skillful song, or a didactic or reflective poem, of Ethan the Ezrahite.

I will sing of the mercy and loving-kindness of the Lord forever; with my mouth will I make known Your faithfulness from generation to generation. For I have said, Mercy and loving-kindness shall be built up forever; Your faithfulness will You establish in the very heavens [unchangeable and perpetual]. 
Let heaven (the angels) praise Your wonders, O Lord, Your faithfulness also in the assembly of the holy ones (the holy angels). For who in the heavens can be compared to the Lord? Who among the mighty [heavenly beings] can be likened to the Lord, A God greatly feared and revered in the council of the holy (angelic) ones, and to be feared and worshipfully revered above all those who are round about Him? O Lord God of hosts, who is a mighty one like unto You, O Lord? And Your faithfulness is round about You [an essential part of You at all times]. You rule the raging of the sea; when its waves arise, You still them. 
 11 The heavens are Yours, the earth also is Yours; the world and all that is in it, You have founded them. 12 The north and the south, You have created them; Mount Tabor and Mount Hermon joyously praise Your name. 13 You have a mighty arm; strong is Your hand, Your right hand is soaring high. 14 Righteousness and justice are the foundation of Your throne; mercy and loving-kindness and truth go before Your face. 15 Blessed (happy, fortunate, to be envied) are the people who know the joyful sound; they walk, O Lord, in the light and favor of Your countenance! 16 In Your name they rejoice all the day, and in Your righteousness they are exalted. 17 For You are the glory of their strength [their proud adornment], and by Your favor our horn is exalted and we walk with uplifted faces. 18 For our shield belongs to the Lord, and our king to the Holy One of Israel.

I especially love the underlined portions! There is NO ONE like our GOD! None are even close! Never forget, when you face tests and trials, that HE has gone before you! He knows every aspect of what lies ahead of you in this life, and, if you allow Him, He will abundantly prepare you for VICTORY in every one! After all, God is FOR you (Romans 8:31)! Who can possibly come against you and succeed? NONE! AMEN! Here is Hillsong with "I Exalt You":

Shalom in Him!
