This is what the Lord says:
“Heaven is my throne,
and the earth is my footstool.
Where is the house you will build for me?
Where will my resting place be?
2 Has not my hand made all these things,
and so they came into being?”
declares the Lord.
“These are the ones I look on with favor:
those who are humble and contrite in spirit,
and who tremble at my word.
In this short passage, remember God is the Creator of all things.
We should recognize God for who He is how great He is.
And then the question becomes, “Does He care about us? We are so small and weak compared to God.”
The answer to that question comes next: God looks in favor on the humble and those who are sorry for the wrong they do.
