Psalms 75:6-7 (NKJV)For exaltation comes neither from the east Nor from the west nor from the south.
But God is the Judge: He puts down one, And exalts another.

It is great wisdom to pray for those in exalted positions of authority (see 1 Tim 2:2). God is the one responsible for their exaltation (see Rom 13:1). Being rebellious to constituted authority is an act of rebellion against the judgment of God (see Rom 13:2).
This does not mean we turn a blind eye to the evil they do, or we cannot support opposing parties. But it means we are never rebellious to constituted authority because we don’t like the persons in government. It means we continue to pray for them and not against them. Our prayers for them keep them from being controlled by the will of the devil. Nations suffer when their leaders are fully given to the manipulation of the evil one. Our prayers prevent this from happening.

Exaltation comes from God because He is Judge. He exalts one and brings down another. Acknowledging this truth is great wisdom. It saves God’s people from fruitless motions.

The reason why true promotion on the earth comes only from God is that He is Judge. He determines who is exalted based on the balances of divine justice. These things are hard for the human mind to fully comprehend, but never forget that God’s judgments are trustworthy and absolutely just (see Psalm 19:9).

Go into today asking the Lord to exalt you and use you for His glory on the earth.

Pray for those in authority, that they may do the will of God and execute justice and equity.
