Exalt the Lord our God; worship at his footstool! Holy is he! —Psalm 99:5
In Psalm 46:10, God says, “I will be exalted among the nations; I will be exalted in the earth!” You may not see God being exalted quite yet. You may not be able to see the outcome except by faith, but you can be confident it will be true.
In the meantime, what do you do? Well, you sing. Psalm 46 was originally intended to be sung. God loves to hear our voices in the midst of turmoil. He wants to hear us sing, “God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.”
The only way you can sing when you’re in trouble is to do so through faith. There have been times in my life when I’ve walked through some deep waters, when I haven’t known what to do, how to respond, or who God wants me to be. In those times, I can choose to be frustrated and fearful or I can put on faith, trust that God is who He says He is, and sing.
