the one i esteem

i have always loved this verse in Isaiah 66, and just ran across it again the other day:

"This is the one I esteem: He who is humble and contrite in spirit, and trembles at My Word."

i learned [from Beth Moore, obviously] that "esteem" means to "have respect". God has respect for the humble, contrite in spirit, who tremble at His Word. wow.

here it is in printable form:

as always, go here to buy.
