Fear not, thou worm Jacob-....Isa. xli. 14. In the light of truth, and under the teaching of the Spirit, every believer in Jesus loses sight of the once fancied dignity of his human nature, and sinks in the view of himself to the meanest reptile. Probably the church, in Isaiah's days, had been considering her weak, helpless state; surrounded with trials and difficulties; exposed continually to the power of enemies on every side; in great danger of being trodden under feet and crushed to death; and had been laying her case before the Lord, confessing the words of David, "I am a .faorm, and no man..."..Psalm xxii. 6. Well, the Lord condescends to reply to such humble souls in their own language. "Though thou art as mean in thine own eyes, and as as despicable in the sight of others as a poor, base, insignificant, crawling worm of the earth, yet thou art precious in my sight. Though thou hast no power in thyself to resist thine enemies, no strength to support thyself under thine afflictions and distresses, though satan threatens, troubles bow thee down, corruptions rage, and all the combined force of earth and hell is enraged against thee, yet Fear Not, thou worm, saith the Lord."
