Sermon Discussion Questions: Know I Will Be Exalted Everywhere

Jason Meyer

Pastor for Preaching & Vision

The following outline and discussion questions have been prepared to accompany the sermon on October 27, “Know I Will Be Exalted Everywhere” (Psalm 46:1–11). The questions can be used for discussion in small groups or for personal reflection.


  1. God’s Sovereign Rule over Nature (Psalm 46:1–3)
  2. God’s Sovereign Rule over His City (Psalm 46:4–7)
  3. God’s Sovereign Rule over All the Earth (Psalm 46: 8–11)

Main Point: Be still and know God’s person and God’s plan. Know his power to fulfill his plan: God will be exalted everywhere.

Discussion Questions

  • What is the genre and structure of the Psalm? How do you find the three stanzas? What is the theme of the three stanzas?
  • What repeated words are found in the Psalm? What is the significance of repeated words in the Psalm?
  • What is the climax of the Psalm when God speaks directly to us?

Application Questions

  • How does the Psalm speak directly to you where you are at in your relationship with the Lord and understanding his Person, power, and plan?
  • What is the next step for you in knowing the Lord—how can you go deeper?
  • What message from Psalm 46 do you need to share with those around you? Does anyone specifically come to mind? 

Prayer Focus 
Pray for a grace to be still and know the Lord. Pray for greater communion and fellowship. Pray for a deeper understanding of his power and plan.
