Isaiah 57:15

For this is what the high and lofty One says – he who lives forever, whose name is holy; “I live in a high and holy place, but also with him who is contrite and lowly in spirit, to revive the spirit of the lowly and to revive the heart of the contrite.

This verse contains beauty and holiness and incredible comfort for the believer. God is enthroned above the heavens in majesty and glory few have witnessed. Yet this same God Who appears to be surrounded by an emerald rainbow (Rev. 4:3), Who has myriad of angels singing “Holy, Holy, Holy”, this God also lives with those who are humble and contrite. If we clearly understand this, wouldn’t we gladly give up our “rights” to certain things in order to be humble? Wouldn’t we run to Him for forgiveness with contrite hearts? There, in the presence of the Most Holy God, we would experience revival.
