Do you remember that moment as a child when you realized that the whole world doesn't revolve around you? I remember a distinct moment when it dawned on me that every other person on the planet had all of their very own thoughts and feelings. I can't really remember how old I was when it happened to me, but I do remember that it blew my mind. I still have moments where that concept hits me all over again and the magnitude of it stuns me.
Then there comes the moment when it hits me that not only does the world not revolve around me, it actually revolves around a Supreme Being.
This morning the old song I Exalt Thee was stuck in my head. You might be familiar with the chorus:
I Exalt Thee, I Exalt Thee, I Exalt Thee, Oh Lord
The part of the song that I like the most is the verse:
For Thou Oh Lord Art High, Above All the Earth
Thou Art Exalted Far Above All gods
As I soaked in that verse, I was overwhelmed with the reality that God is so far above all of our earthly concerns. He is so far above all other gods, idols, and demonic strategies. Nothing can ever make Him worry. He is mind blowing!
Action point: Take some time to look up to Him and remember that He is so much better than you could ever grasp.
For You are the LORD Most High over all the earth; You are exalted far above all gods. Ps. 97:9
