Today's Insight from Chuck Swindoll

Let God Do the Exalting
by Charles R. Swindoll

When a man's ways are 
pleasing to the LORD, He makes even 
his enemies to be at peace with him.
Proverbs 16:7

Think of David, the young musician, tending his father's sheep back on the hills of Judea many centuries ago. 

He was a self-taught, gifted musician. He didn't go on tour, trying to make a name for himself. 

Instead, he sang to the sheep. 

He had no idea that someday his lyrics would find their way into the psalter or would be the very songs that have inspired and comforted millions of people through long and dark nights.

David didn't seek success; he simply humbled himself under the mighty hand of God, staying close to the Lord and submitting himself to Him. 

And God exalted David to the highest position in the land. . . .

You don't have to promote yourself. . . . God will promote you. . . . Let God do the exalting! In the meantime, sit quietly under His hand.
