I live in the high and holy place with those whose spirits are contrite and humble. I restore the crushed spirit of the humble and revive the courage of those with repentant hearts. Isaiah 57:15 Holy Bible, New Living Translation
A contrite heart means one whose heart breaks when they sin.
Now do you notice that Jehovah lives in a high and holy place?
That can only mean Heaven.
Do you notice that those with a contrite heart live there with Him?
When we are naughty and then repent (which means we admit what we did, admit it was wrong, apologize for it, ask for forgiveness and make restitution where possible) then Jehovah takes our spirits up to Heaven to be with Him, if only for the moment of when we repent.
I believe this is a sign from our loving Heavenly Father that our sins are truly forgiven.
The Holy Spirit instills in us all that which is right and that which is wrong. We receive the proper rewards for the decisions we make. Joseph a son of Jehovah.
See how He says He will revive those of a repentant heart.
I know from my experience I felt crushed with remorse, weak and feeble. After repentance my heart felt as if a heavy burden had been lifted from it and danced with joy and gratitude for the forgiveness that was blessed upon me by my Heavenly Father (even when those that we offended were not so generous nor forgiving).
“Trust the past to God’s mercy, the present to God’s love and the future to God’s providence.” St. Augustine of Hippo
Prayer: Thank you Jesus Goelekh (Isaiah 49:26&60:16The LORD Thy Redeemer) that when I repent, You gently redeem me back into Jehovahs holy family. I praise You in Your kind, loving name. Amen
May love be in your life, may hope be in your heart and may peace be in your every day walk with Christ. Joseph a son of Jehovah
