I reside in the high and holy place, but also with those crushed and lowly in spirit.—Isa. 57:15.

 

In recent years, many with decades of experience have received a change of assignment. Such adjustments were not easy for these brothers and sisters to make. Obviously, they felt attached to their former assignment, in many cases one that they had cherished for years. Some went through a “grieving” process as they adjusted to their new circumstances. In time, though, they were able to adjust. Why? Above all, because of their love for Jehovah. They knew that they were dedicated to God—not to a work, a title, or an assignment. (Col. 3:23) They are glad to continue serving Jehovah humbly in any capacity. They “throw all [their] anxiety on him,” knowing that he cares for them. (1 Pet. 5:6, 7) When we cultivate the endearing quality of humility, we benefit both ourselves and others. We are better able to deal with life’s challenges. Above all, we draw closer to our heavenly Father. w19.09 6-7 ¶15-17

You can't walk with God while holding hands with the Devil.

We often think that having an approved condition before God means some kind of recognition or title, but as the day‘s text shows it’s not about titles or previous assignments that measures whether one has God’s approval. That is human thinking. Rather God is close to the humble, which endears one closer to God, and views them as valuable and precious.
