Bible Study: Let Us Keep a Lowly Spirit So That God Can Dwell In us

Vanity is very displeasing to God. When we are overly confident in our abilities, He has to remind of us who He is. He is High and Holy. He is the High and Exalted One. He has to, in a sense, put us in our place, when we get "too big for our britches." He prefers to dwell with the "contrite" and the "lowly in spirit." Once again we see God prefer the humble over the arrogant. It should be a very powerful lesson to us in how we should behave.

Verse

For thus saith the high and lofty One that inhabiteth eternity, whose name is Holy; I dwell in the high and holy place, with him also that is of a contrite and humble spirit, to revive the spirit of the humble, and to revive the heart of the contrite ones.

prayer

Lord, I thank You for who You are. I praise You. You are high and exalted. You are Holy and Mighty. Help me to have a lowly spirit so that You will dwell with me and prefer my company. Amen.
