Morning Thought: The Lord lifts up the righteous. Sometimes we look to people, places and new circumstances to exalt us. But these are the wrong things to put your hope in. Look to the Lord and him alone to take you higher. “For not from the east, nor from the west, Nor from the desert comes exaltation; But God is the Judge; He puts down one and exalts another…And all the horns of the wicked He will cut off, But the horns of the righteous will be lifted up” (Ps 75:6-7, 10, NASB).
