Exalt the LORD - Isa 33:5-6

Exalt the LORD

Isa 33:5 The LORD is exalted; for he dwelleth on high: he hath filled Zion with judgment and righteousness.

If we exalt ourselves, God is brought down in our thoughts. This is not good, in fact it is of the devil. The devil sought to exalt himself above God, and he was cast down. Learn from this, be humble and see God as exalted. Humble yourself and seek not help from the worlds might. Pray and he will hear and be your strength. For He dwelleth on high, his ways are higher than ours; exalt the LORD.

Psa 2:10 Be wise now therefore, O ye kings: be instructed, ye judges of the earth.
Psa 2:11 Serve the LORD with fear, and rejoice with trembling.
Psa 2:12 Kiss the Son, lest he be angry, and ye perish from the way, when his wrath is kindled but a little. Blessed are all they that put their trust in him.

His presence is greatly desired by His people. In his presence is judgement; knowing good from evil and righteousness. We are clothed in the righteousness of Jesus Christ, not our own righteousness. Some say, just trust your heart. The word of God says our hearts are evil, so we trust in the LORD.

Rom 3:22 Even the righteousness of God which is by faith of Jesus Christ unto all and upon all them that believe: for there is no difference:
Rom 3:23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;
Rom 3:24 Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus:

Isa 33:6 And wisdom and knowledge shall be the stability of thy times, and strength of salvation: the fear of the LORD is his treasure.

Wisdom and knowledge of the LORD in our hearts, shall be the stability of thy times, faith in God is the strength of salvation: the fear of the LORD is his treasure. The fear of the LORD will keep us from sin and our hearts focused on serving him. His love flows through us. He is all good and it is a pleasure to serve the one true God. The world is in turmoil, but those who serve the LORD shall have peace.

Psa 18:2 The LORD is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower.
Psa 18:3 I will call upon the LORD, who is worthy to be praised: so shall I be saved from mine enemies.

Exalt the LORD and praise the LORD!
