Where He Dwells

An absolutely amazing verse:

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,

(pause)

...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."

Isaiah 57:15 (NIV)

That THE GOD, the High and Holy One, would dwell in a high and holy place... well, that just makes sense. Where else would He dwell? Surely He wouldn't dwell with... ah yes, but He does. He also dwells with the contrite and the lowly.

What an amazing God we serve.
