“This is what the LORD says: Heaven is my throne, and the earth is my footstool… This is the one I esteem: he who is humble and contrite in spirit, and trembles at my word.” (Is.66:1,2 NIV)  Amazing! The one who sits enthroned looks with great respect on the one who is humble in heart, who has respect for God’s way.  


The prophet Isaiah says; “I saw the LORD seated on a throne, high and exalted... Woe is me! I cried. I am ruined! For I am a man of unclean lips, and I live among a people of unclean lips, and my eyes have seen the King, the Lord Almighty.” (Is.6:1,5 NIV)  These verses makes it clear that the more we see the Lord for who he is, we have a better perspective of ourselves.   


Jesus said, “learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart,  and you will find rest.”  He also said, “I tell you the truth the Son can do nothing by himself; he can do only what he see his Father doing, because whatever the Father does the Son also does. For the Father loves the Son, and shows him all he does.”  (Mt.11:11:29 NIV)  (Jn. 5:19-20 NIV)  Humility was one the great lessons Jesus teaches us.  Learn this he says! Christ was completely reliant on his Father. He knew God loved him, therefore he trusted God, humbled himself and walked in God’s will, step by step.


As Christians, you and I have become sons of God.  He loves us and will also guide us. We are to trust God, present ourselves to him. He will work in and through us a life that counts for this life and eternity.  Trust and submit to him, He will not fail.
