"But this is the one to whom I will look, to the humble and contrite in spirit, who trembles at My word" (Isaiah 66:2).
To be humble in spirit is to willingly choose to be desperately dependent upon You alone. To be contrite in spirit is to willingly choose to be tenderly sensitive to Your correction and guidance. To tremble at Your word is to willingly choose to highly reverence Your will above our ways in the holy fear of the Lord.
This is the heart that pleases You; this is the life that draws Your favor and embraces Your Presence. "For thus says the high and lofty One, who inhabits eternity, whose name is Holy: I will dwell in the high and holy place, and also with those who are contrite and humble in spirit, to revive the spirit of the humble, and to revive the heart of the contrite" (v. 57:15).
When we tremble at Your word, we'll no longer tremble at the world. When we humble ourselves in the sight of the Lord, You will lift us up. When we yield to leading of Your Spirit, You'll lead us in the paths of Your righteousness, beside Your still waters, as Your restore our souls. "The sacrifice acceptable to God is a broken spirit; a broken and contrite heart, O God, You will not despise" (Psalm 51:17). Lord, let it be so in me today and every day. In Jesus' name I pray, Amen
