Can anyone explain "the assurances of my highest consideration."

I have come across the phrase "the assurances of my highest consideration" at the end of very formal letters/e-mails and I don't really grasp the meaning of that. Could anyone, please explain that phrase using easy-to-understand words for me. I'm asking this because I'm not a native speaker of English. Thank you in advance.

This sounds like a new way of saying sincerely. This is how a letter is normally closed. "The assurance of my highest consideration" means the person will think on whatever was said in the letter and make the best decision. They are trying to re-assure you of this!

Thank you for your explanation. I was really too difficult for me to figure it out for the first time I came across it.
