Scripture: Isaiah 66:1-2; James 4:6, 10; 1 Peter 3:8; 5:5
Discussion: As we consider who God is in Isaiah 66:1, we should find ourselves humbled (v. 2). Humility is the only right response to a true understanding of who God is! Consider the verses in James and 1 Peter listed above. What lessons on humility can we learn from these verses, and how does your life display (or not display) true humility?

Scripture: Isaiah 66:2; Psalm 51:17
Discussion: How would you describe contrition and brokenness over sin? Why is it so important for believers to have a brokenness over sin? Spend some time asking the Lord to reveal your personal sins to you and show you ways in which you need to live a holier life. And as Psalm 51:17 reminds us, be comforted that the Lord will not despise or turn away a broken spirit (displayed by a broken and contrite heart).

Scripture: Isaiah 66:2
Discussion: What does it mean to tremble at the word of God? Do you believe you display an adequate reverence, respect, and fear for God and His Word so that you would say you “tremble” at His Word? Pray that God would help you grow in your respect for His Word. Also, in your conversations with others, seek to lift high the words of our God in personal interactions, thus emphasizing the Bible’s importance.
