Has not my hand made all these things, and so they came into being?" declares the LORD. "This is the one I esteem: he who is humble and contrite in spirit, and trembles at my word.(Is 66:2)
If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land. (2 Chron 7:14)
I never thought that the day will come when I would like to be viewed as a humble person. After all when you humble yourself before people, they take advantage of you, they view it as a weakness. Lord, help me focus on my failures and not the failures of others. I want to yield my right to be right. I want to esteem others better than me.
Recently I was thinking about how I can have so much strength on one side and a lot of weaknesses on the other….. I worry so much about things that really does not matter. I worry about how God feels when I miss church, when I’m not not reading the word, when I’m not praying or fasting. Sometimes I worry about life so much that I forget to live life.
“LORD, who may dwell in your sanctuary?
Who may live on your holy hill? He whose walk is blameless
and who does what is righteous, who speaks the truth from his heart
and has no slander on his tongue, who does his neighbor no wrong
and casts no slur on his fellowman.”
( Ps. 15:1-3
