exalted

Here in the United States we are just weeks from the presidential election. Many of us, if not all of us, are over the mudslinging, vindictive speeches, and negative campaigning we have heard in the media. I am ready for some quiet, some peace, and simplicity. For wisdom, certainty, and clarity. My whole being cries out for it.

One of the things I realized, was how often the candidates strive to hold themselves up as “better than” the other candidates. Nothing but chest-beating and puffed up words.

Then I look to Scripture. God is clear about His position. He is the only one who deserves to be held up, glorified, or exalted. He alone is worthy of our praise, honor, of the position He holds. No one else will ever be greater, no one else will ever be stronger, no one is wiser, more discerning. No one.

God alone knows the world’s heart. He alone knows the future. He alone knows who will win battles, lose wars, win skirmishes.

Only God.

It won’t matter who becomes president in November. Not really. Yes, policies and laws will be written, changed, removed, etc. But God, who deserves all praise, glory, and honor forever will still be on the Throne, still be listening to His children’s prayers, still changing hearts, still empowering believers to move mountains.

God is worthy of being exalted because He is God. But I rejoice in exalting Him because of who He is to me.

My Savior, Messiah, Redeemer, Friend, Comforter. My all in all.
