‘Heaven is My throne and the earth is My footstool.
Where then is a house you could build for Me?
And where is a place that I may rest?
For My hand made all these things,
Thus all these things came into being,’ declares the Lord.
‘But to this one I will look,
To him who is humble and contrite of spirit, and who trembles at My word.’”
—Isaiah 66:1-2 (NASB)
OK…I’m going to take this in a whole other direction. Yes, it has very deep and personal application to how we should each live and behave. But I would like to suggest that these verses also provide a measuring stick by which we can discern whether someone or something claiming to be of God is indeed so. How someone treats not just the person of God but His Word is one of the most visible indicators of whether or not they are actually on His side.
