Psalm 113

“Who is like the LORD our God, who is seated on high, who looks far down on the heavens and the earth?” (v5-6). The psalmist praised the God who is “high above all nations” and whose glory fills the earth (v4). He “looks down” on us, yet He doesn’t remain distant and uninvolved; He “raises the poor from the dust … and gives the barren woman a home, making her a joyous mother children” (v7-9). Our Father cares about the sorrows and difficulties of human life.

Our God is “seated on high” but also sent His Son into the world to walk among us, to experience suffering and to die in our place. His power and love are unlimited.
