How To Get God's Attention
Our text for today is from Isaiah 66:2. For all those things hath mine hand made, and all those things have been, saith the LORD: but to this man will I look, even to him that is poor and of a contrite spirit, and trembleth at my word.
The Lord in verse one tells us about the earth being his footstool and Heaven is his throne and he said in verse 2 he made those things. He then goes on to say after making all of these great things, if you want my attention then acquire two things; a contrite spirit and a fear of my word.
These things get God’s attention. A contrite spirit. That’s being broken or brokenhearted over sin or damage you have done to someone (King David had this kind of spirit when he messed up with Bathsheba. Read Ps.51.) and since God's word is true, holy, clean, and pure it is important that we take his word seriously.
“Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time:” 1st Peter 5:6.
