Humbled Before God
For all those things My hand has made,
And all those things exist,”
Says the Lord.
“But on this one will I look:
On him who is poor and of a contrite spirit,
And who trembles at My word. (Isaiah 66:2, NKJV)
Worship also means to “express in some appropriate manner” what you feel….
And what will be expressed? “A humbling but delightful sense of admiring awe and astonished wonder.” It is delightful to worship God, but it is also a humbling thing, and the man who has not been humbled in the presence of God will never be a worshiper of God at all. He may be a church member who keeps the rules and obeys the discipline, and who tithes and goes to conference, but he’ll never be a worshiper unless he is deeply humbled. “A humbling but delightful sense of admiring awe.” There’s an awesomeness about God which is missing in our day altogether; there’s little sense of admiring awe in the Church of Christ these days. – A.W. Tozer
I kneel before You this morning, Lord, with ‘a humbling but delightful sense of admiring awe and astonished wonder.’ Use me today, Lord, to stimulate within others some of this much missing sense of ‘admiring awe.’ In Jesus name, amen.
