Reflecting on God’s Word . . .

Isaiah 57:15 NLT

The high and lofty one who lives in eternity, the Holy One, says this:

I live in the high and holy place with those whose spirits are contrite and humble. I restore the crushed spirit of the humble and revive the courage of those with repentant hearts.

Reflection . . .

God’s promise in this verse is as true today as always!

God dwells with those who have a humble and contrite spirit. That dwelling place is high and holy! It is a place of honour, set apart and lofty! It is for those who fear God and come before Him acknowledging their sin and need for Him.

God restores those who are crushed in spirit, those who are humble come to Him. He revives the courage of the repentant heart!

These things the Lord God will do and does for us!

What’s the requirement or responsibility on our part?

We are to be contrite and humble in spirit with a repentant heart!

  • Are you humbling yourself before the Lord in prayer/communion with Him?
  • Are you repenting, turning from your ways to what the Lord wants for you?
  • Are you committing yourself to the Lord to be set apart for His purposes?
  • Are you willing to be broken by His grace daily?
