The Majestic, Exalted Rule of God

After this, the psalm again calls us to worship: “Oh come, let us worship and bow down; let us kneel before the LORD, our Maker!” (v. 6). Again the Psalm gives us reasons to worship: “For he is our God, and we are the people of his pasture, and the sheep of his hand” (v. 7a). God is our God. He has bound himself to us, to do good to us (Jer. 32:40). And he has made us his own. We are his people, and he is our Shepherd (Pss. 23:1-6; 100:3). He cares for us personally; he feeds us from his own hand. Those same omnipotent hands that hold granite peaks in their grip care for us, provide for us, and gently lead us in the way we should go. The majestic, exalted rule of all has stooped low and come down to us.
