What is our standing before the Lord?
Psalms 22:6 talks about how Christ sees Himself before the Lord. Humble Himself and rely upon the Lord.
Whereas Isaiah 41:14 tells about Jacob as a lowly worm in whom God has shown mercy upon.
Can a worm help himself even if he tries his best?
Do you think you Can help yourself even if you tried your best.
What is your standing before the Lord?
A self reliance man or a helpless worm?
Psalms 22:6-8 NLT
But I am a worm and not a man. I am scorned and despised by all! Everyone who sees me mocks me. They sneer and shake their heads, saying, “Is this the one who relies on the lord ? Then let the lord save him! If the lord loves him so much, let the lord rescue him!”
Verse 6. - But I am a worm, and no man(comp. Job 25:6; Isaiah 41:14). The worm is a symbol of extreme weakness and helplessness - it is naturally despised, derided, trodden upon.
Isaiah 41:14 NLT
Though you are a lowly worm, O Jacob, don’t be afraid, people of Israel, for I will help you. I am the lord , your Redeemer. I am the Holy One of Israel.’
God's people are as worms, in humble thoughts of themselves, and in their enemies' haughty thoughts of them; worms, but not vipers, not of the serpent's seed. Every part of God's word is calculated to humble man's pride, and to make him appear little in his own eyes.
