The Habitation of God Paradox – Isaiah 57:15

“For thus says the One who is high and lifted up, who inhabits eternity, whose name is Holy: I dwell in the high and holy place, and also with him who is of a contrite and lowly spirit, to revive the spirit of the lowly, and to revive the heart of the contrite.” God’s abiding presence transcends this world to eternity so that the temporal is occupied by the eternal. But what’s amazing, what’s paradoxical, is that God Who inhabits eternity and dwells in the high and holy place of the heavenlies, also dwells with people who are truly sorry for their unrighteousness and sinful ways. God’s omnipresence is also His reviving presence for all the penitent, for those who know that they need a big God to take charge over their lowly life.
