For thus says the One who is high and lifted up, who inhabits eternity, whose name is Holy: “I dwell in the high and holy place, and also with him who is of a contrite and lowly spirit, to revive the spirit of the lowly, and to revive the heart of the contrite. Isaiah 57:15
The One who is high and lifted up.
The One who inhabits eternity.
The One whose name is holy.
Does that command your attention?
Are you ready for what this One says?
We should be.
I dwell in the high and holy place
I dwell with him who is of a contrite and lowly spirit.
See the contrast? High and holy versus contrite and lowly.
See high and lowly form the bookends.
Contrite is sorry for sin. Holy is apart from sin.
(This is good stuff.)
To revive. To bring back to life.
The spirit of the lowly.
The heart of the contrite.
God tells us once again
How He brings us life.
How He comes to us.
Dwelling and reviving.
