Proverbs 25:6-7 Put not forth thyself in the presence of the king, and stand not in the place of great men: For better it is that it be said unto thee, Come up hither; than that thou shouldest be put lower in the presence of the prince whom thine eyes have seen.
There is a difference between being called up, and climbing up. Climbing up means that you worked hard and earned your place at the top, but one slip and it could be the mountainside tumble all the way to the bottom. Being called up means that you are there on the word of someone else. Someone else has authority, and you are merely a recipient of that person’s grace. This is what Yahshua Ha MASHAYACH did for us, He called us out of death into life, and we do not stay on the path to life because of our own effort, but because of Yahweh’s faithfulness. It’s better to be called up, than to fall down.
“The Lord knows the days of the blameless, and their heritage will remain forever; they are not put to shame in evil times; in the days of famine they have abundance.”(Psalm 37:18-19), ‘Trust’
“As for you, O Lord, you will not restrain your mercy from me; your steadfast love and your faithfulness will ever preserve me! For evils have encompassed me beyond number; my iniquities have overtaken me, and I cannot see; they are more than the hairs of my head; my heart fails me.” (Psalm 40:11-12), ‘Mercy’
