-*Application* How often do you simply set aside time to praise the LORD as His servant? Today, take time to bless the God of Heaven and earth with your exultation of His glory knowing that this can and will be done forever by His saints. He is high above the nations, not just above, HIGH above. His glory is even above the heavens. Think about the incredible images from the Hubbell telescope and wonder just how amazing our God is enthroned above all of that splendor. He is tops! No one is like Him, yet He humbles (shaphel- to humiliate, to be abased, to become low, sink) Himself to behold (ra’ah- to see, look at, inspect, perceive, consider) all the things He created in Heaven and in the earth (Psalm 113:6). Our God is so wonderful, amazing, gracious, giving, and so much more all at the same time. He cares for us and considers the mess that we’ve made by succumbing to temptation and drifting away from Him. This is what causes our poverty and misery. We need help, a Rescuer, a Deliverer, and Jesus is that lowly-humble aid in our desperate situation (Isaiah 53, 1 Peter 3:18). He brings joy and life back to the table, and even gives His Spirit as the seal and promise of our comfort and security (Song of Solomon 8:6, John 4:16-27, 2 Corinthians 1:22, Ephesians 1:13, 1 John 4:13). What a great God we serve! Check out this amazing song of praise and worship Him today: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jb0QLBPIq0s
