The high and lofty one who lives in eternity, the Holy One, says this:
I live in the high and holy place with those whose spirits are contrite and humble.
I restore the crushed spirit of the humble and revive the courage of those with repentant hearts.
Lord God Your Kingdom is:
not for the proud, but for the humble
not for the sinless, but for the forgiven sinners
not for the brave but for those You have en-couraged.
Lord Jesus You won the victory over sin
not by power but by obedience and love.
Holy Spirit, guide, teacher, enabler please lead us through today. Amen.
