“Thus says the Lord God of the Hebrews: ‘How long will you refuse to humble yourself before Me?
Humbling yourself for Christ does not mean you have to surrender your intellect, but to be not prideful and selfish. Humbleness is to confess our past failures and dissatisfaction spiritually, and to accept that we are incompetent to God.
2 Chronicles 7:14
If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.
The Lord lifts up the humble;
He casts the wicked down to the ground.
Let your laughter be turned to mourning and your joy to gloom. Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and He will lift you up.
To be humble is to have a heart for God. It is to have a fear of God, and not of the world. Ask Him for His Will in your life, Godly sorrow—understanding each sin you've committed, and attaining wisdom from your past transgressions.
When they cast you down, and you say, ‘Exaltation will come!’
Then He will save the humble person.
Push hard to know more about Him by keeping in His Word, filled by the Spirit, and understanding the His mercy and grace exemplified in His Son Jesus Christ who undergone a punishment in atonement (in token of shame) for your sins because you couldn't.
For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast. For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.
1 Peter 5:6-7
Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time, casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you.
Arise, O Lord!
O God, lift up Your hand!
Do not forget the humble.
