For thus says the High and Lofty One Who inhabits eternity, whose name is Holy: “I dwell in the high and holy place, With him who has a contrite and humble spirit, To revive the spirit of the humble, And to revive the heart of the contrite ones. Isaiah 57:15 New King James Version
The proud are dammed to Hell, the humble will enjoy Heaven. Joseph- Anthony: Green
contrite: feeling or showing sorrow and remorse for a sin.
When we are sorry for a sin we have committed and make amends for our wrong we are forgiven.
Now sometimes because of the circumstances or our disposition we cannot make amends. That is when we need to sincerely pray to Jehovah to bless us with the Holy Spirits guidance and strength and disposition Then when the Holy Spirit answers us we are to be obedient.
humble :not proud : not thinking of yourself as better than other people
Sometimes we are too filled with pride because we believe we are better than the offended one and we will not lower ourselves to apologize and make things right. This attitude must be smashed and destroyed before any reconciliation can occur.
We will never be right with God until we are right with others. Joseph- Anthony: Green
Once we have been reconciled with the one we offended then we can be reconciled with Jesus. If you feel Jehovah is far from you, maybe it is because you are far from Him. He does not tolerate disobedient children but always forgives those who repent. When there is reconciliation on our behalf then He will heal our spiritual life and revive our healthy relationship with ourselves, with others (sometimes the others will refuse to accept our overtures but that is okay, God knows and that is what is important) and with Jehovah.
revive: to become strong, healthy, or active again All definitions from Merriam- Webster dictionary

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day
