In general, I like to read a chapter from Proverbs and a Psalm every day. My Psalm for yesterday was Psalm 138. I had a quick thought on it, but never got time to post it yesterday:
Though the LORD be high, yet hath he respect unto the lowly: but the proud he knoweth afar off.
The Lord’s eyes and His attention are on the humble, the lowly. In Paris, we saw a lot of things that human rulers did to exalt their own prestige. The Lord exalts His glory by turning His loving attention to humble and lowly people.
There’s another kind of people — the proud. The Lord knows them, too. He knows all about them, He knows their hearts, He knows them just as well as He knows the humble. He knows them when they are afar off — and that is where they will stay. You’ll never get close to the Lord when you hold to your pride. He’ll know you all too well, but you’ll not know Him. You’ll always be known from afar.
