A reminder for today
This is what the LORD says: "Heaven is my throne, and the earth is my footstool. Could you build me a temple as good as that? Could you build me such a resting place? My hands have made both heaven and earth; they and everything in them are mine. I, the LORD, have spoken! "I will bless those who have humble and contrite hearts, who tremble at my word.” (Isaiah 66:1-2)
We are worshiping an awesome God and He is much greater than we can ever understand. God says here in Isaiah that the heavens are His throne and the earth is His footstool. When you look at the vast expanse of the universe and you see the wonders of the earth how can you give anything that can compare to this? God says that so that we must know that there is nothing we can do or give Him. We cannot impress God nor can we buy Him because we are a mere drop in the ocean compared to Him.
The Lord says that He will bless us when we have humble and contrite hearts. Contrite is a remorseful and repentant heart. God says this so that we know it is not the other way around. It is not what we can give Him; it is what He will do for us when we are humble and repentant. This means we that we should focus on living a life that is humble and remorseful towards God as we flourish in His mercy. It is all about Him and this is a concept we need to make part of who we are each day. We live for Him and for His glory. The picture is far greater than the little world we see each day.
So today I want to remind you that you cannot impress God, instead you must live humbly and repentant giving all that you are for Him and for His glory. God will bless us in return so that we will stand amongst our enemies while our cups run over. So spend more time is His Word and make it part of your day.
Lord I pray that you will bless us as we humble ourselves before you and as we regret our mistakes and seek your forgiveness and guidance though all our obstacles each day. In Jesus name.
Have and awesome day dear friend of Jesus
