Commentary from Pastor Michael White:

For thus says the High and Lofty One Who inhabits eternity, whose name is Holy: “I dwell in the high and holy place, with him who has a contrite and humble spirit, to revive the spirit of the humble, and to revive the heart of the contrite ones.” – Is 57:15

God dwells in the high and holy place. The only way you get to Heaven is by letting God take you there. You can’t earn your way in. You can’t force your way in. You can’t buy your way in! But when you trust in Jesus, He takes you by the hand and leads you in.

God is high and lifted up in Heaven. We invite Him to take us where He is by being humble. The less you think of yourself, the more He can honor you. When we are weak, He is strong! When you humble yourself, God will exalt you.


Father, keep me humble! Help me never to think too highly of myself. I cannot WAIT to spend all of eternity with You in Heaven!
