Humility is a loadstone that draws both the heart of God and man to it

In Isa. 57:15, ‘Thus saith the high and lofty One, that inhabiteth eternity, whose name is holy; I dwell in the high and holy place, with him also that is of a contrite and humble spirit.’ The Lord singles out the humble soul of all others, to make him a habitation for Himself.

Here is a wonder!
God is on high; and yet the higher a man lifts up himself, the farther he is from God; and the lower a man humbles himself, the nearer he is to God.

Of all souls, God delights most to dwell with the humble, for they do most prize and best improve His precious presence.
