When we exalt God we place Him above everything.
Above our pain.
Above our hurt.
Above our circumstances.
Above our will.
Above our desires.
Above other people.
We put Him in His place of authority on His throne as the king and ruler of our lives.
When we bow in reverence and submission, spiritually to guide us naturally, we have to look up.
While looking up, we are unable to look at ourselves or anything or anyone around us.
As long as Peter looked at the King who stepped off the throne, he was able to participate in what to him was the miraculous ability to walk on water.
As soon as he took his eyes and focus off of the One who sits in power at the right hand of the Father, he began to sink.
But, Peter knew what to do. He called out to the Prince of peace for salvation. And Jesus saved him from sinking.
If we are looking up with our eyes focused on the King, we are looking to the same hill the Psalmist told us provides our help.
Calvary’s hill, where the King was crowned as the Savior of humanity, is where the Lord doesn’t slumber or sleep. He laid His life down.
The Lord of that hill, as the Psalmist continued, won’t our feet slip.
The Lord of that Hill won’t allow us to be harmed.
Like a good Ruler, the Lord of that hill watches over us as we look up and exalt Him.
I challenge us today, seat the King on His throne by exalting Him. While we watch Him He will watch us and take care of everything we need.
Go be great. (And search for these Scriptures) Someone is counting on you!
