[QTVOTD] A River has Banks…

“THUS SAYS the Lord: Heaven is My throne, and the earth is My footstool. What kind of house would you build for Me? And what kind can be My resting-place? For all these things My hand has made, and so all these things have come into being [by and for Me], says the Lord. But this is the man to whom I will look and have regard: he who is humble and of a broken or wounded spirit, and who trembles at My word and reveres My commands.” Isaiah 66:1-2 ->me: I kind of have to let this one stand on it’s own. The Lord God has created everything for Him and by Him so what in the world do we think we could ever offer this Maker of the Universe that He does not have or could not call into existence with just a word. However, even as powerful as He is, He will look on with regard the humble man, with a contrite heart, and a fear for the Lord that is reverent before His word. Wow… Then John Piper this morning had a great point -> a river is not a river unless it has banks; otherwise it just runs everywhere and has no direction. Humbleness, repentant heart, fear of God, and respect for His word are my banks.
