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 ESV
We are actively working against forces that are not of this world. It can be challenging, yet we have this reminder. God dwells with those who have a contrite and lowly spirit. In order to receive revival in our spirit, we have to examine our lives for arrogance. The word says that those who are remorseful or sorry for their sinful rebellion and those who are humble will be revived in spirit. Pockets of arrogance may be getting in the way of true revival in our spirits.
Reflect – Where have you elevated yourself above others? Has arrogance impeded your spirit from experiencing breakthrough? Pray for God to empower you to remain humble and contrite in spirit despite the humanly urges of elevation.
